WOOF :: theme_img( String $path, String $base_dir = "images", Boolean $parent = "auto" )
An object representing the image, whether the file exists or not. (Check existence by calling "exists" on the image file object).
Retrieves a WOOF_Image object representing an image file at the path given, relative to the directory of the active theme appended to a default base directory of “img” inside your theme. This method is also child-theme aware, in that it is configured by default to first look for the image 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.
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.
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.
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.
