#1 Check the URL to see if this is an attachment

Let's say we have a link to a file in the wordpress media library: http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/import.png and this file also has its own page in the frontend: http://example.com/import:

is_local_attachment( 'http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/import.png' ); //> false

is_local_attachment( 'http://example.com/import' ); //> true

// nonexistent file
is_local_attachment( 'http://example.com/fooo' ); //> false
