background image location

The dummy space in the column will be replaced by text, so I can't
simply use an <%= image-tag .... %> entry - it's going to have text over
it. On the background-image entry, I've tried url(images/rightimage.jpg)
and url(/images/rightimage.jpg). I can't get the background image to
load on the page. I'm assuming that it's because it's not being found.

How do I get a background image to load in rails?

Try:

background-image: url(../images/rightimage.jpg);

I use this...

background-image: url("/images/watermark.jpg")

No good. Still doesn't load.

Try sticking the background-image on your body to see if it is really
loading or not.
There may be another reason it isn't displaying.

Hi Michael,

I haven't followed this back to the original post so forgive me if this has already been covered.

Are you able to load other images and only having problems with the background images?

Best regards,
Bill

rightImage.jpg perhaps? Case issues on *nix systems.

Try addeding explicit {height: xxx; width: xxxx} of the image to your style …
