Image Path Issue?

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:

http://siteName.com/nested-page/assets/folderName/imageName.jpg

rather than

/assets/folderName/imageName.jpg

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.

THANKS!

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