Creating path variable for images and  Include files

Last Modified: 2013-12-24


when i needed to create a variable to determine the path, i've did the following:

<!---create rootpath variable on each page-->
<cfset rootpath = "../">

then called it like :

<img src="<cfoutput>#rootPath#</cfoutput>images/spacer.gif" width="780" height="1" alt="" border="0" /><br />

On my sites, the header and foother is often placed in an include file and then called on pages througout the site.  So if i set the rootpath in the page that was calling the include file, it would replace #rootPath# with " ../".

This works, however, i wanted to know is there a more efficient way to do this.   Can anyone give some help.  

Thanks,
Y
