Can`t figure out how to call the gif image with a full url (for example: http:// urltoimage .com/test.gif) instead of the stylsheet directory url (obj_test.stylesheet_directory_uri + '/img/ajax-loader.gif').

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The current code in my custom.js file:

    //infinite scroll
    if ($masonry.length && obj_test.infinitescroll != 'disable') {
    nextSelector = obj_test.nextselector;
    if (document.URL.indexOf('/source/') != -1) {
        nextSelector = '#navigation #navigation-next a';

        navSelector : '#navigation',
        nextSelector : nextSelector,
        itemSelector : '.thumb',
        prefill: true,
        bufferPx : 500,
        loading: {
            msgText: '',
            finishedMsg: obj_test.__allitemsloaded,
            img: obj_test.stylesheet_directory_uri + '/img/ajax-loader.gif',
            finished: function() {}

    }, function(newElements) {
        if ($('.check-text01').css('float') == 'left') {
            var $newElems = $(newElements).hide();

            $newElems.imagesLoaded(function() {
                $masonry.masonry('appended', $newElems, true);
        } else {
            var $newElems = $(newElements);
            $masonry.masonry('appended', $newElems, true);

Unfortunatly my skills are not enough to solve this problem. I researched (googled) and so on - no luck.

  • Why? isn't the method obj_test.stylesheet_directory_uri + '/img/ajax-loader.gif' giving a dynamic and working path to the GIF anyway?

  • This is not my code. In this case it delivers the image from the own content folder of the installation wich gives you more control about the image - you can also deliver it with cdn to. But now i will load the gif from a external source...

  • Sounds like a fix, loading from a CDN and providing full path. Or if you have a child theme where you upload ajax-loader.gif to img/ dir, as obj_test.stylesheet_directory_uri probably points to get_stylesheet_directory_uri() return

  • My Problem is still not solved - if you have any idea, to load the image from a full url - this would be awesome

  • isn't it simple as img: 'https://computerobz.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/when-im-told-that-my-code-is-broken-in-production.gif' in the loading object? did you try such thing?

1 Answer 1



    img: obj_test.stylesheet_directory_uri + '/img/ajax-loader.gif',


    img: "http:// urltoimage .com/test.gif",

solve the problem.

Important - the url between '...' does not work! The url must be between "..." That was the problem i dont figured out before :)
