Master page background images

I have a  
about.aspx,
MasterPage.master,
images<------------ folder containing the images
pages<-------------folder containing web pages
all located under my root directory.

The about.aspx shows perfect with masterpage.master; however, if I pull up any other page under the pages folder the background images for the masterpage are not displayed.

I believe the problem is how the image location is specified, but then again, it may be something I haven't thought of yet.

Here is the code located on my masterpage.master
<td  style="background-image: url(images/blue-gradient.gif);">
 

How do I fix this?


Thanks

You need to use a relative path:

url(/images/blue-gradient.gif)

if that doesn't work, try this:
url(../images/blue-gradient.gif)

Nope didn't work. Thank you for the suggestion.

I've tried your suggestions plus

url(~/images/blue-gradient.gif)
url(~\images/blue-gradient.gif)
and
url(\images/blue-gradient.gif)

I got this [../images/] to work on my page, but i have this structrure:

-- >Root
         ------>Masterpage.master
--> Pages
         ------>Child page
--> Images
         ------>background.gif

Can you put your master page in the same folder as your pages?

There are quite a few folders under the root, one for each security setting.  So, I would need to recreate the masterpage under about 15 different folders.

I have tried placing the master page in its own folder....this didn't work.

Can you put a class in your stylesheet with this attribute:

background-image: url(images/blue-gradient.gif);

and reference that stylesheet in your master page?

To get the actual path... Simply add one Image control on your form... then add the image path  from the "imageurl" property. You will get the path, just copy paste in :
<td  style="background-image: url(images/blue-gradient.gif);">

kraffay... the class showed the image in the master page, but not the other pages

unexplainedways...  the full path doesn't show the image at all

sandip132...  the imageurl would be <td  style="background-image: url(~/images/blue-gradient.gif);">; this doesn't show the image at all

Thanks

"the full path doesn't show the image at all"
