Support » Fixing WordPress » PHP Get Theme Folder

  • Hey, I am new to wordpress and php, although I have experience in a C++ language (MEL). But am having problems trying to get on my feet with a few things.

    I’m creating a theme from scratch for my website. The theme directory has an images folder as well as the css and php files. The small problem I have is when the php files are brought together that html file is at “” so any images in the image folder won’t work being relative to the index.php file.

    What is the code to get my images to have a prefix to the theme directory?
    I tried this after doing a search on here but it didn’t work:
    <a href="#"><img src="<?php TEMPLATEPATH(); ?>/images/resume.gif" /></a>

    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks, although I’m getting a problem that I think is bigger than I originally though (that I just didn’t know the syntax).

    If I hard-code it, my site shows up fine:
    <a href="#"><img src="/images/resume.gif'" /></a>

    If I do this:
    <a href="#"><img src="<?php include(TEMPLATEPATH . '/images/resume.gif'; ?>" /></a>

    Then my entire site dissapears and just shows white and the source is blank.
    Am I being completley stupid?

    Sorry my fault, its trying to include if you do that – although note you didnt have right closing bracket.

    Try this

    src=”<?php bloginfo(‘stylesheet_directory’); ?>/images/resume.gif”

    Brilliant! That works perfectly.
    Thanks for your help!
