White Label CMS
[resolved] Putting image in the Themes Images Folder (6 posts)

    In case any of you were wondering about this decision of the developer to put the images in the themes images folder (which I can't understand), here is some explanation.

    I love this plug-in, but I can't understand why they decided to make you have to put the images in the current themes images folder. The problem comes when you use a theme that doesn't use the term "images" to put the images in, they may use "img" or "imgs" or "graphics" or "lib" or "img_lib", etc. The developers of this plugin clearly didn't think about that. So to currently fix this you need to open up the wlcms-plugin.php file and replace /images/ with whatever your them uses for example /img/ then you can just put the direct logo name in the the logo fields (i.e. "mylogo.png" not the full path).

    My feature request for the next update to this plugin would be to put in the direct path so you can put your graphics wherever you'd like. Thanks.

    Hi Jason,

    We are listening to your feedback, and will be implementing this in the next version.

    Glad you like the plugin.

    Thanks

    This was my first concern as well when watching the video.

    This would be very handy ... also I'm not sure the suggestion above works if using a child theme, unless you plonk the files in the parent theme ... look forward to absolute referencing in the next ver.

    I would also like to suggest that the plugin include an option to leave the images alone altogether. I don't mind leaving the default WP logos in place, I use White Label CMS primarily to control what the user has access to when they log into the dashboard. Now it is an annoyance because I *have* to have the images in that folder or the plugin doesn't work properly.

    Finally - I couldn't figure out why my images weren't showing up. I'm using a child theme, and for some reason I have to place the images in the parent theme. Since most developers create a child theme rather than modify the parent theme, this doesn't make much sense - hope that's changed in later versions, because this is a great plugin otherwise. (although I agree that being able to define your own image path makes the most sense)
