Dear Experts,

I have drupal 7 website installed on a local MAMP server. For some reason the images from pages.css file don´t show up.

For example, my images are store in:
/Users/Me/Documents/Web/MySites/WebTest/drupal/sites/all/themes/webest/images/logo.png

From the css file, this is how I call the image:

background: url("/sites/all/themes/webtest/images/logo.png") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;

I´ve tried also using absolute path but it does not work either.

Could you please help me?

Thanks,

Winter

I imagine your url looks something like this when viewing your site locally:
http://localhost/WebTest/drupal

Open in new window

In which case your css would be:
background: url("/WebTest/drupal/sites/all/themes/webtest/images/logo.png") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;

Open in new window


But generally you'd want to use a path relative to your css file. For example if your css file is located in:

/Users/Me/Documents/Web/MySites/WebTest/drupal/sites/all/themes/webest/css/style.css

You would want your css to be:
background: url("../images/logo.png") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;

Open in new window
