css background image not working


I’m trying to set the background of a page to an image I have in the assets/images folder in my rails app.

However, for the life of me I cannot get it to work. When I open up and inspect the element I keep seeing in the resources that the file cannot be found with a red “!” next to the image.

I have tried different paths still no avail…




In my static_pages.css.scss I have

Figured it out!

Simply added

background: url(bg.png);

If you prefer use scss with assets pipeline its better use following sintax:

background: image-url(bg.png);
