I have taken over a from a previous developer on a site. They use a / infront of all their links for example.

<link href="/css/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

Where would I put style .css?

I have been doing it like example_folder/css/style.css but it doesn't work, so where should I be putting the css folder?

Thanks,
Josh

That's an absolute reference - the initial / signifies the root folder - so style.css should go in a folder called css off the root folder.

Hi, guys

Check out the way to your style.css, if it's relational or absolute, it is very likely that you have an error in syntax

He has been doing this a lot lately. He is posting garbage responses to get his sig link exposed...Too bad that url has been blocked by CF! :D

I know, spotted that myself, there was another one in a different thread. Felt I had to comment on this one...Shocking about the signature though.:D

This is really confusing me because my css folder is in the root directory called css and it doesn't work.

If I get rid of the / and make it


<link href="css/style.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

Then it works but I want it to work with the / as there is a lot of paths with it included and to change them all is a big hassle.

Thanks,
Josh
