Hello.
I have normal pages, which have content, in the content I sometimes have images.
Lets say the page can be called like this localhost/about/

Now I also have a virtual page, taking the content from that original page
This virtual page I can reach like this localhost/summary/about/

When I add a picture into my content I get this path generated: src="assets/Uploads/xyz.png"

The problem is. Even when loading the picture from this page localhost/about/ the assets/Uploads/xyz.png won't exist. Which could make me think I just have too write ../ before assets. But because of my additional virtual page, I'd still have a problem

I thouhgt maybe the mod_rewrite would take care of this problem but somehow it doesn't seem to do that :/

Does someone has a strategy ?

Finally I typed in the right search words, so that I could find another post in this forum dealing with the same problem.

You need to have <% base_tag %> in the head of your HTML template. See http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tutorial:1-building-a-basic-site#templates :)
