Hi, I'm having a problem with the routing within my rails app. I'm probably doing something completely, obviously, and totally wrong, but for the life of me I can't see it. The short of it: My banner disappears if my url goes beyond displaying the controller name. Case in point: # the banner displays correctly when viewing the home page http://localhost:3000/home #Right click the banner and select show background image #Banner url - everything is fine http://localhost:3000/images/logo1.png #Banner disappears when viewing an article however http://localhost:3000/article/show/5 #Right click the banner and select show background image #banner url - the article controller is embedded in the url http://localhost:3000/article/images/logo1.png To help simplify the problem I removed the css file and hard coded the banner into the div: <div id="logo" style="width: 700px;background-image: url(../images/logo1.png)"> Anyone have a good place for me to start looking?

Haha, ok that was it, thank you very much! I want to crawl to the bottom of a hole for missing something that obvious.

Hi Joe, could you provide a snippet of code (i.e. Ruby template) that contains the image? In any case, you should be referencing images in you templates as follows: /images/some_image.image_extension I was faced with this same issue last night because the pages where using images/some_image.image_extension which was an incorrect usage and was referring to a different directory on my server. Good luck, -Conrad
