I have a processForm.php in theme directory that does what it says. I am trying to include a file (which i need in order to run a specific function in processform.php) from a plugin directory and have been unable to do so. As suggested in first solution in this thread I tried :
include( plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ ) . 'test-plugin/needed_file.php');
I was pretty sure this would work but unfortunately it throw a warning like so :
Warning: include(/home2/xxx/public_html/wp-content/themes/xxx/test-plugin/needed_file.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory
As said earlier the processForm.php lies in the theme directory and I have no issues anywhere else, calling files within the template directory. If this may help, there is alos a constant defined for this particular plugin's path which goes like this :
define('WPFP_PATH', plugins_url() . '/test-plugin');
So in accordance to a solution suggested here, I tried using code below :
include(WPFP_PATH . '/needed_file.php');
Unfortunately it throws three types of warning :
First warning :
http:// wrapper is disabled in the server configuration by allow_url_include=0
Second warning :
failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in....
Third warning :
Failed opening 'http://awesomeness.com/wp-content/plugins/test-plugin/needed_file.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in.....
So the bottomline is How do I include this file into my processForm.php ( which is in root of theme directory).
