  • url in css file

    Need help with a background image in the CSS file. I have just tried uploading the site I am doing but the background images wont work. The only thing it can be is the url in the style sheet.

    The image path will only work if set out in the manner:

    Code:
    background-image: url(


    It wont work like this:
    Code:
    background-image: url(318734_7189small.jpg);


    *I having included the rest of the code*
    Could that be the reason that is stopping it displaying when uploaded?


    Any ideas

    are the image and the style sheet in the same folder?

      that's a path issue - if you have your images in a folder you need to point to that folder.

      includes won't make any difference as they are parsed as HTML. Are you testing locally? Have you cleared your cache?

        I agree. Make sure that your images are in the same folder as your css code, or try putting a slash in front of the filename, so it will be absolute in the main folder, which is what it looks like:

        Code:
        background-image: url(/318734_7189small.jpg);

          I know this can span a wide variety of topics, but I'm curious what your favorite design book is.
          My focus is branding and logo design, but trying to build a library of design books.

          The point at which no one is able to make a living in a once thriving profession. Your ''secondary skill'' definition would be that cliff.

          There is no ''general rule''

          The idea is not to have rivers running through it. Sometimes you have to suggest to the client that they might have to change a word here and there (as long as...

          I predict that the worse case scenario is graphic design reduced to secondary skill status.

          What is ''the cliff?''
