image in header

I'm just getting started and have a simple question.

I want to put a .jpg in my page header.
I put the following in the CSS:
  background-image: url(assets/images/RRB_header.jpg);
But, it doesn't show up.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

try url(/images/RRB_header.jpg);

I tried this in my CSS :
#header {
  width: 870px;
  height: 120px;
  margin: 0px auto;
  padding: 10px 0px;
        background-image: url(/images/RRB_header.jpg);
}

The jpg file is in app/assets/images

But, the image doesn't show up.

Hi!

Try to access the image using the browser.

dude you are wrong delete the ‘/images/’ part of your url bcuz the new Rails asset engine dont need that (are you using rails 3.1.x right?) check that and let us know. :slight_smile:

what I usually do is put the images in public/images/blablabla.jpg

then just do background-image: url(/images/RRB_header.jpg);

because I think when u do / <- this directly points to public

so if u do /assets/images/bla2.jpg means /public/assets/images/bla2.jpg

i might be wrong though.

Richard,
Thanks!! - putting it in public/images worked!
