View Full Version : Why am I forced to use "absolute URLs" in code?

10-28-2011, 02:44 AM
This is very odd. I am modifying a website locally on my machine before I upload it for a client.

Why is the entire site structure forcing me to use absolute path URL's for things like images, css, site linking etc...

So this simply doesn't work <img src="../images/photo.png"> I have to use the entire "http://www.-----

All my other sites allow relative linking and they have always worked great.

What is forcing this site to force me to use absolute URL's?

Very confused here!! Thanks!!!

Hello listerdl,
Umm, maybe because the images are not on the local machine?

Have you ever tried <base html="path" /> ? Look at this suggestion: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_base.asp

THANKS that is what the "problem" was.
