The concept of path

SPIP uses a large number of functions and templates, contained in various folders. When a script needs to open a file to load a function or to read a template, SPIP will search for it in one of a number of folders. The first matching file found in one of these will be loaded and used. The folders are perused in the order defined by the constant SPIP_PATH and, optionally, using the global variable $GLOBALS [’dossier_squelettes’]. The default search path is, in order: -* squelettes/ -* the plug-in plugin_B/ (which depends on “plugin A”) -* the plug-in plugin_A/ -* squelettes-dist/ -* prive/ -* ecrire/ -* ./
