How to get a relative path in module to display images?

2 Answers 2


Drupal has ways to get the relative path from document root but not for individual module/theme folder.

You can get the path to current module or theme using path_to_theme

<img src="/<?php echo path_to_theme() ?>/images/projectsetup.jpg"/>

path_to_theme from the documentation

Returns the path to the current themed element.

It can point to the active theme or the module handling a themed implementation. For example, when invoked within the scope of a theming call it will depend on where the theming function is handled. If implemented from a module, it will point to the module. If implemented from the active theme, it will point to the active theme. When called outside the scope of a theming call, it will always point to the active theme.

  • @GiorgoskK: Madhu is talking about the module, not the theme. path_to_theme will give the path to theme folder, not the module. Commented Mar 12, 2018 at 6:53

Try this code.

$path = drupal_get_path('module', 'myModule') . 'image/projectsetup.jpg';

now set src = '$path' into your .module file where you set image src.
