CSS background image src URL .../tmp/cache/...

Post by sherlock »

Hi everyone

I am just buildingup my own template and I face a minor problem which I couldn't figure out how to solve.
So, basically in my CSS file there are few background images and the source for these images is set correctly to the right source (ex url(uploads/images/site/bg.gif) repeat-x;).
When I load the page in the browser, the background image does not show up and the source in CSS file looks like this url("http://localhost/cmsmadesimple/tmp/cach ... ite/bg.gif)

This is only in cases when I use images in CSS. Images used in the HTML templates are OK.

I would really appreciate someone helping me out with this problem. Why does the image source URL point to the tmp directory instead of the one I actually specified in my CSS file? What I am missing here?

Thank you
sherlock

Your problem could be version 1.8 or 1.8.1 where stylesheet is cached and placed in tmp folder.
Use [[root_url]]/uploads/images/yourimage.gif

i had the same issue, and just did /../../images/file.jpg - this does the same thing of getting you back to the root folder from where that css file is stored.

With the new cms_stylesheet tag you can also use (/uploads/bla bla) instead of [[root_url]]/uploads...
Check ver. CMSMS, PHP, server OS, in System Information page.

Can you post a link to the site you are working on? One thing you want to make sure of is that your stylesheet call is {cms_stylesheet} and not the older {stylesheet}.

Just to be sure [[root_url]]/uploads/images/image.jpg will be fine to transfer to the live server won't it? and out of interest once the website is installed on a live server would I be able to neglect the [[root_url]]/ command or as I seem to be finding out does the {cms_stylesheet} tag always require the full path to an image?
