My plugin structure was created by the plugin factory. I have a setting called ulStateClass and I have been able to change the value of that setting in the Setting for the plug in. Looking at the 3.0 Docs page for settings I see the example:

// From your main plugin class:
$foo = $this->getSettings()->foo;

// From elsewhere:
$foo = \ns\prefix\Plugin::getInstance()->getSettings()->foo;

My namespace is recoveryfinder\craftnav

In my services php file I have the following to test:

echo \recoveryfinder\craftnav::getInstance()->getSettings()->ulStateClass;

I am getting the error:

Error Class 'recoveryfinder\craftnav' not found

Making progress with Craft and enjoying it. I am guessing that this is a misuse or misunderstanding of namespaces? How Do I correct this?


Little bit confused with your question, if you want to access your settings then you can do craft::$app->plugins->getPlugin('handle')->getSettings()->foo;

  • That worked but is very different than the 3.0 docs that I reference. Mar 26 '18 at 3:52
  • If you are calling that method from elsewhere page then you use namespace else you will be using the one that i provided. Mar 26 '18 at 5:00
  • Note: this solution is the slower, performance worse one, that calls the ns\prefix\Plugin::getInstance()->getSettings() in the end. I suggest to download a proper IDE that handles all namespaces and includes for you and aceess the plugin directly. Mar 26 '18 at 5:14
  • I am using Netbeans. I am editing the plugin locally and running a LAMP server on my laptop. When I test my code I refresh the page in the browser from my local machine. The code ns\prefix\Plugin::getInstance()->getSettings()->ulStateClass; or recoveryfinder\craftnav::getInstance()->getSettings()->ulStateClass; was not working from my local machine server.

  • @robin-schamback I said I was using Netbeans. I suppose I should have said I was abusing Netbeans :)! What do you recommend? Mar 26 '18 at 23:06



Assuming your main plugin file/class is Craftnav.php

Hope this helps :)
