Hi everybody,

I can't figure out something that's probably not that complicated. Maybe
can sort this out easily for me.

I have a theme called "mytheme" residing in themes/mytheme. That theme
folder looks like this:

                             \... (some stuff)
is included in the main layout and works)

\basemod.css (this is included from within application.css and works)

Now, within basemod.css I am doing this:

  #header { padding: 323px 2em 1em 20px; color: #000; background: #000
url(../../images/bg_header.jpg) no-repeat scroll left top; }

But when running Typo using Mongrel (from within Netbeans 6.5) I am
this when it tries to access the bg_header.jpg file:

Processing ThemeController#stylesheets (for at 2009-04-05
11:52:06) [GET]
  Parameters: {"filename"=>"images/bg_header.jpg"}
  Trigger Load (0.1ms)   SELECT * FROM `triggers` WHERE (due_at <=
'2009-04-05 11:52:06')
  Blog Load (0.1ms)   SELECT * FROM `blogs` ORDER BY id LIMIT 1
Completed in 6ms (View: 0, DB: 1) | 404 Not Found [

What is the correct way to refer to files in the images directory from
within stylesheets? Why is the request going to http:localhost and not
http://localhost:3000 where Mongrel is running? Calling the request URL
port 3000 directly within the browser does not work anyway, but I'm

Any help is welcome. Thanks!

Tobias W.

Hi Tobias,

What you're looking for is ../../images/theme/some_picture.whatever
