[resolved] Path is hardcoded to wp-content (7 posts)

    Unfortunately this plugin is hardcoded for the WP default folder: wp-content. To help insure security, many are renaming that folder. As a result, the skins are not available. I hope there will be an update to resolve this.

    Hello,
    You, sir, are incorrect. The plugin, in fact, asking WP where the plugin directory is located:

    get_bloginfo('wpurl') ).PLUGINDIR.'/'. dirname( plugin_basename(__FILE__)

    But if this is not working for you, we'd love to learn more. Could you provide additional info on this security practice of renaming the wp-content folder that many are using? Is this officially supported by WordPress? Links please.

    Hi Baden,

    As stated above, " As a result, the skins are not available." It is the skin folder which can not be found if the wp-content folder is renamed.

    Hi Ron,

    Well, not sure what to tell you. If WordPress does not know where the PLUGINDIR is... then there must be more issues than this plugin not finding the stylesheets.
    Have you told WordPress that your renamed the wp-content folder?

    define ('WP_CONTENT_DIR','/full/path/to/your/content/dir');
    define ('WP_CONTENT_URL','http://example.com/full/path/to/your/content/dirs/url');

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/renaming-moving-wp-content

    It seems you also might need to:

    define('WP_PLUGIN_DIR', 'new/path/to/plugins');
    define('WP_PLUGIN_URL', '/url/to/plugins');

    http://sumtips.com/2011/01/move-rename-wordpress-wp-content.html

    Again, a Link Explaining what you did would be very useful.

    Update: It seems there is a ticket open on this: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/7704

    Will update plugin to use WP_PLUGIN_DIR and see if that fixes it for you.

    Nice, that update did the trick. Thank you so much for the time you spend on improving this great plugin.

    T(-) Countdown will be added to the Talking Manuals product reviews for WordPress.

    Kind regards,

    Ron
