Getting Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_path() when linking to another file within my wordpress plugin
I created a plugin TESTPLUGIN and added it on wordpress admin menu. I can access the plugin from the admin menu just well. The problem I am having is how to link to another file within the plugin. The file members.php is loaded by the add menu callback function. In this members.php I want to add a link to show_member.php load a single member when the name of a member is clicked. Both files are under one directory.
`<a href="<?php echo plugin_dir_url(__FILE__).'show_member.php?id=4';?>">John Smit`h</a> the url resolves to **http://localhost/mywebsite/wp-content/plugins/myplugins/views/members.php** which is the correct path of show_member.php
But am getting this error message when I click the link:
Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_path() in C:xampphtdocs...
I have also tried plugins_url() but got the same error. Can someone guide how I could link to another file within my wordpress plugin. What an I doing wrong? Thanks.
