[resolved] php inside php (6 posts)

    I have a date hack that displays an image for the date in my posts. It works perfectly.
    What I want to do is use the bloginfo('theme_url') tage in place of the full url to the images.
    Here is the working code:
    <? php $d = strtolower(get_the_time('D')); echo ("<img src='http://MYURL.com/wp-content/themes/christmas/img/date/{$d}.png'> "); ?>
    I want to replace http://MYURL.com/wp-content/themes/christmas
    with the
    <? php bloginfo('theme_url'); ?> TAG

    Is there a way to get the bloginfo inside an existing php tag?

    <? php $d = strtolower(get_the_time('D')); echo ("<img src='bloginfo('theme_url');'> "); ?>

    Should work. Basically to combine PHP functions together, you strip out <? php and ?> from one of the functions and combine it into the other one where you want it to appear.

    Tried that already and it doesn't work.
    <?php $d = strtolower(get_the_time('D')); echo ("<img src='bloginfo('theme_url');/img/date/{$d}.png'> "); ?>
    would be the full code.

    it ends up outputting this.
    <img src='bloginfo('theme_url'); /img/date/mon.png'>

    OK I got it folks.
    I'll past what I got just in case somebody else runs into the problem.

    <img src='<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?><?php $d = strtolower(get_the_time('D')); echo ("/img/date/{$d}.png'> "); ?>

    BTW if anybody's interested in making the post dates images all you do is replace this:
    <?php the_time('D j M Y'); ?>

    with this:
    <img src='<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?><?php $d = strtolower(get_the_time('D')); echo ("/img/date/{$d}.png'> "); ?>
    <img src='<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?><?php $m = strtolower(get_the_time('M')); echo ("/img/date/{$m}.png'> "); ?>
    <img src='<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?><?php $j = strtolower(get_the_time('j')); echo ("/img/date/{$j}.png'> "); ?>
    <img src='<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?><?php $y = strtolower(get_the_time('Y')); echo ("/img/date/{$y}.png'> "); ?>

    make you're images and you're good to go.
