Use a Plugin Element Outside of the Plugin in CakePHP

Quick note- I had an element .ctp file that was part of a plugin.  I wanted to render that element across my entire Site Avenger site, including non-plugin layouts and themes.  I found out that you can send $this->element() (formerly $this->renderElement()) a 'plugin' parameter to accomplish this... otherise CakePHP will only look in the app-wide elements or themed elements folder.

Render Plugin Element in Application

  1. echo $this->element('mini_cart', array('plugin'=>'avorders'));

Cheers,
