    Default Plugin Manager (in Zen Cart 1.5.7+)

    To learn more about the Plugin Manager (a new 1.5.7 feature), and how to create plugins that work with it, please see

    https://docs.zen-cart.com/dev/plugin...lated_plugins/

    Remember, in v1.5.7 it only supports Admin plugins, not Catalog.

    What's the best way to set a file path within the zc_plugins directory pathways!

    This the old path,
    Code:
    $blockmail = DIR_FS_CATALOG . $emailfile;
    New path works but is hard coded,
    Code:
    $blockmail = DIR_FS_CATALOG . '/zc_plugins/BlockEmailManager/v1.2.0/catalog/' . $emailfile;
    The more I look at it, I think soft coding the version folder is all I need to fix...

    What happens when you use the old path ?

    The file was stored at the site root. If I place it there, all works. I was trying to use the catalog of the plugin manager,,, Thinking now of just having the installer move them to the root. The main idea was to have them accessible by bots same as the robot text file.

    At this point the catalog-side functionality isn't fully implemented. But your use-case certainly raises an important feature. While rare, there is definitely a need to support files whose purpose is intended to be an actual endpoint for site visitors to hit. It doesn't do that yet. So in the meantime you can put the file there manually by hand or by some script.
    If possible it may be beneficial to make it a .php file that acts as a handler (see other handlers in the webroot of zc core already, although I recommend much briefer, merely a proxy) to call the "actual" script located in the plugin's proper directory, which might be locatable using a global var/constant defined in the bootstrapping process (eg perhaps an extra_datafile for the plugin).
