URL rewrite without a plugin

I tried using the theme without adding the URL rewrite plugin but everytime I use <?php get_template_directory_uri(); ?>/assets/img/slide-dummy.jpg it’s returning just /assets/img/slide-dummy.jpg. It should be returning the whole template directory. Is it just me or are others experiencing this. I’m using the latest version of Roots which is v6.5.1?


Most of the get_something functions in WordPress just get and don’t echo the result. Add the echo and you’ll be fine.

ahahahha! my bad! maybe working more than 14 hours a days taking it’s toll now. Thanks a lot!
