$plugins_dir

$plugins_dir

This is the directory (or directories) where Smarty will look for the plugins that it needs. Default is "plugins" under the SMARTY_DIR. If you supply a relative path, Smarty will first look under the SMARTY_DIR, then relative to the cwd (current working directory), then relative to the PHP include_path. If $plugins_dir is an array of directories, Smarty will search for your plugin in each plugin directory in the order they are given.

Technical Note: For best performance, do not setup your $plugins_dir to have to use the PHP include path. Use an absolute pathname, or a path relative to SMARTY_DIR or the cwd.

Example 12-1. Appending a local plugin dir

<?php

$smarty
->plugins_dir[] = 'includes/my_smarty_plugins';

?>

Example 12-2. multiple $plugins_dir

<?php

$smarty
->plugins_dir = array(
                       
'plugins'// the default under SMARTY_DIR
                       
'/path/to/shared/plugins',
                       
'../../includes/my/plugins'
                       
);

?>
