WOOF :: theme_file( $path, Boolean $parent = "auto" )

Returns:

Retrieves a WOOF_File object representing a file at the path given, relative to the directory of the active theme. This can be really useful for displaying links to documents stored inside your theme folder. This method is also child-theme aware, in that it can be configured to first look for the file in an active child-theme, and if not found there will then look in the parent theme. See the $parent argument for more details.

Example:

Parameters:

  • $path

    The path of the file, relative to the active theme directory

  • Boolean $parent = "auto"

    Specifies where to look for the file, in the case of the current theme being a child-theme. If the active theme is not a child theme, this argument is essentially ignored. The following values are supported:

    • “auto” – Will look for the file first in the child theme folder and if not found will then check the folder of the parent theme.
    • false – Will only check for the file in the child theme. This will always return a URL as if the file exists, even if it does not.
    • true – Will only check for the file in the parent theme. This will always return a URL as if the file exists, even if it does not.

MasterPress 1.2.8 is now available

It was brought to our attention that MasterPress would give a tonne of warnings and deprecation notices when used with PHP 7.4 – this update addresses those.

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.
