ACCESSING THE CURRENT THEME’S PATH IN WORDPRESS

To access the cureent theme’s path is not difficult. What you’re looking for is get stylesheet_directory_uri. With this simple function the current theme’s URL can be retrieved.

For example:

<img src="<?php echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); ?>/assets/myphoto.jpeg" />

The get_template_directory(); will return to the parent theme if you are using a child theme. On the other hand, get_stylesheet_directory(); will go to the current theme, child or parent. These techniques are guaranteed to return server paths.

Methods To Use:

  • Get_stylesheet_directory

Folder path of current theme

e.g. /var/www/sitename.com/wp-content/themes/child_theme

  • get_template_directory

     Folder path of parent theme

e.g. /var/www/sitnename.com/wp-content/themes/parent_theme

  • get_stylesheet_directory_uri

     Full URL of current theme

e.g. https://sitename.com/wp-content/themes/child_theme

  • Get_template_directory_uri

Full URL of parent theme

e.g. https://sitename.com/wp-content/themes/parent_theme
