Unuasalble Template Filters (1 post)

    I have been working on a plugin that allows user to select different themes for different posts and pages.

    I could find out that the filters:

    • 'template' called in function get_template
    • 'template_directory'called in function get_template_directory
    • 'stylesheet' called in function get_stylesheet
    • 'stylesheet_directory' called in function get_stylesheet_directory

    (all in theme.php) are all useless and do not make any difference during execution.

    I looked further and found out that those functions are called from 'wp-settings.php' and the result is assigned to a "constant" used afterwards in the code as follows:

    • define('TEMPLATEPATH', get_template_directory());
    • define('STYLESHEETPATH', get_stylesheet_directory());

    This also happens before the 'init' action execution which also made it impossible to hook on the filters above at the early initiation and startup.

    Solution:
    Stop assigning the template directories to contants and always use the function calls in the following files:

    • wp-settings.php
    • comment-template.php
    • general-template.php
    • template-loader.php
    • theme.php

    One thing to take into consideration is the include of the 'functions.php' that requires the current theme to be defined (later in 'wp-settings.php'). Please study the possibility of delaying this include until a later stage when the theme for the current page is identified.
