    Image Path Issue? Link to this post

    I am experiencing a problem when attempting to insert an image into a page using the CMS.

    The image uploads without a problem and appears in the CMS and on my homepage without fail. However it seems that the image path is:

    img src="assets/folderName/imageName.jpg"

    This works fine for the homepage and for the CMS but if on a nested page the image does not show up as the browser is looking for the following:


    rather than


    Am I doing something wrong? Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    How can I set all of my images to default to "/" THEN the image directory/folderName/imageName.jpg?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Apologies if this question has already been answered (or if the solution is simple).

    No - changing the image path in the CMS pop-up image properties window does not seem to work.
