To autoload helper functions in CodeIgniter, you can add the helper file name in the autoload.php file located in the config directory of your CodeIgniter project.


Here's how you can autoload helper functions in CodeIgniter:

  1. Open the autoload.php file located at application/config/autoload.php.
  2. In the $autoload['helper'] array, add the helper file name(s) that you want to autoload. For example, if you want to autoload the url_helper.php and form_helper.php, you can add them like this:
1
$autoload['helper'] = array('url', 'form');


  1. Save the autoload.php file.


Now, the helper functions specified in the $autoload['helper'] array will be autoloaded in your CodeIgniter project. You can use these helper functions in your controllers, models, and views without explicitly loading them.
