Hardcoded file paths (3 posts)

    This is yet another plugin that is failing because it has filepaths hardcoded in the PHP code rather then correctly reading the paths from the wp-config file. It's getting quite annoying by now since I've been trying to find a decent plugin for about an hour now!

    I have no "wp-content" folder, but just a "content" folder instead.
    I have no "plugins" folder within a "wp-content" or "content" folder, but just in the root.

    Why do developers insist on hardcoding these paths while these are all options that can be set in the wp-config file.

    define( 'WP_CONTENT_DIR', $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/content');
    define( 'WP_CONTENT_URL', 'http://yoursite.url/content');
    define( 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR', $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/plugins');
    define( 'WP_PLUGIN_URL', 'http://yoursite.url/plugins');
    define( 'PLUGINDIR', '/plugins'); // support for older plugins
