How to get first an image in Joomla article?

In some specific cases, you need to get first an image in Joomla article. This guide will help you do that with a simple syntax. This is not the easiest way, but could you use regex to pull out the image from the intro-text if it’s not specifically given?

You’d need a pattern something like: <img\b[^>]+?src\s*=\s*[‘”]?([^\s'”?#>]+)

  // This is the Regex pattern from above.
  $pattern = '/<img\b[^>]+?src\s*=\s*[\'"]?([^\s\'"?#>]+)/'; 

  // Perform the search, matches will be stored in $matches
  preg_match($pattern, $item->introtext, $matches ); 

  echo "Image src is: " . $matches[1] . "\n";
