WOOF :: child_theme_image( $path, String $base_dir = "images" )


A preset on the WOOF::theme_image to return a WOOF_Image object representing an image file at the path given, relative to the child theme directory of the active theme appended to a default base directory of “images” inside your theme. 

This can be really useful for displaying images stored inside your theme folder, opening up the rich image processing API of the WOOF_Image object to those images. 



  • $path

    The path of the file relative to the directory of the active theme, plus the base directory in the second argument.

  • String $base_dir = "images"

    The base directory of the image file inside the active directory. This defaults to “images” to reflect a common folder name for images in your theme.

MasterPress 1.3.8 is now available

16th December 2022

MasterPress 1.3.8 is a bugfix release. Fixed a bug where MB, KB, and GB were being converted to bytes incorrectly via WOOF file functions. Fixed a bug where transparent images were losing their transparency on resize.

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the WordPress.com hosted service.
