[resolved] [Plugin: Contact Form 7] if having different plugins path (4 posts)

    Looking into /contact-form-7/admin/wpcf7-admin.js file, there is:

    var dropdown_icon = jQuery('<img src="../wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/images/dropdown.gif" />');

    which doesn't work if having a different path for plugins directory. I had to manually modify to:

    var dropdown_icon = jQuery('<img src="../plugins/contact-form-7/images/dropdown.gif" />');

    in order to work for me, as I have website.tld/plugins/ instead of website.tld/wp-content/plugins/. Anyway to correct this so I wouldn't have to modify the code everytime I update Contact Form 7 ?

    Thanks,
    Octav

    If you leave the plugin folder where WordPress expects to find it you won't have that problem. Its not the only plugin expecting its files to be in the plugin folder designated by WP.

    That is the best way correct this so you wouldn't have to modify the code everytime you update Contact Form 7.

    @stvwlf: You can define the plugin dir in config.php as follows:
    define( 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR', ABSPATH . '/plugins' );
    So why not to use that? Looks better on my website...

    @takayukister: thanks for replying.
