Support » Plugin: Newsletter » Paths to images in custom templates

  • Resolved jbx



    I am trying to create a custom newsletter template following the instructions. I copied one of the default templates (theme-3) and changed the HTML to include a few images, and put everything in the /extensions folder as instructed.

    However, the paths to my images in the same folder are not being resolved.

    I am using the plugins_url() function just like the default templates, for example:

    <img src="<?php echo plugins_url('footer.jpg', __FILE__); ?>

    But I think it should be something different when it is in the extensions/ folder because the path I am getting is totally wrong (its the plugin folder suffixed with the full absolute path of the extensions folder including httpdocs/wp-content/extensions which obviously doesn’t make sense from a browser point of view since httpdocs is not publicly exposed.

    What is the right way to include images in a custom template in the extensions folder?

    Uhm, try to use the $template_url variable which is defined by Newsletter.
    See the page about theme on my site there should be some instructions… and may be even inside the default theme.


    Thanks. Yes the variable is actually $theme_url
    It works with that. I was just basing my theme on the default theme-3 which uses plugins_url() and it threw me off track.
