Managing URLs when directory names can be changed is a challenging task to do!

To overcome this issue, a pro WordPress developer must use functions instead of fixed URLs.

For example, if you use this URL when you want to load CSS:

<link type="text/css" href="https://website.com/wp-content/themes/theme-name/css/style.css" rel="stylesheet"/>

You will run into loading problems each time you want to change the name of your theme.

But what if you can get this part of the URL in a parameter:

https://website.com/wp-content/themes/theme-name/

So each time you change your theme name or copy codes to another theme, changing URLs won’t be necessary.

Using the bloginfo('template_directory') in your codes will print the Current Theme Directory for you.

For example, use this code when you want to load a CSS file located inside your current theme directory:

<link type="text/css" href="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?/>/css/style.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
