Hi,

I have made a template with two editable regions which looks fine. when i make a page from it everything works but the background image disappears.

i get the messages in the images below when i save the new page from the template.

this is the template: http://www.dulvy.com/Templates/publications2.dwt

it looks like the one below but has a background

this is a page from the template with missing background: http://www.dulvy.com/pub_pages/pub1.html


is it to do with the path change in the script below?

any help would be highly appreciated, ive been trying to work this out for two hours!

thanks, kira


from the template:
 
<link href="../css/index.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../css/anylinkcssmenu.css" />
 
 
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body {
	background-image: url(../web_images/eagleray_background.jpg);
	margin-top: 0px;
	background-repeat: repeat;
}
 
 
 
from the page from template:
 
link href="../css/index.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../css/anylinkcssmenu.css" />
 
 
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body {
	background-image: url(file:///Macintosh HD/Users/kira/a) KIRA_WORK/DREAMWEAVER/Dulvy Lab/web_images/eagleray_background.jpg);
	margin-top: 0px;
	background-repeat: repeat;
}

you need to change the "file:///Macintosh HD/Users/kira/a" to be the URL of the file http://www.dulvy.com/web_images/eagleray_background.jpg
