Hi, i tried to place an image on the navbar menu and I can not make it functional, here I put an example of my code, any suggestions,

                $menuItems[] = ['label' => 'Opciones Usuario: ',

                               'items' => [

                                           ['label' => Html::img(BaseUrl::to('<?=' . Yii::$app->user->identity->profile->gravatar_id . ' ?>?s=24', 'https')), 'url' => ['/user/settings/profile']],

                                           ['label' => 'Logout', 'url' => ['/user/security/logout'],'linkOptions' => ['data-method' => 'post']],



Best Regards,

This part is very wrong:

BaseUrl::to('<?=' . Yii::$app->user->identity->profile->gravatar_id . ' ?>?s=24', 'https')

The link is external, so you should construct it directly rather than using the URL helpers. Further, you can’t use PHP echo tags within a string like that.

I think you need something like this to generate the image:

$gravatarImageUrl = ''

        . Yii::$app->user->identity->profile->gravatar_id

        . '?s=24';

// Then later:


You don’t need to separate them like that, but I think it makes it easier to follow.

ok perfect, but since I can add the image to the menu item label, display next to the text,


Solved my problem was not the image, you can include the option encodeLabels = false navbar widget
