I have been working wih Silverstripe very often but this is the first time that I face the following problem.

Silverstripe: version 2.4.3.
OS: OS x 10.6.5
HTML editor: Dreamweaver CS 5
Browser: Firefox 3.6.12
Theme: blackcandy
Server: Mamp

I have created a file to have a homepage that is different than the other pages. In this file I have put a <img src> which has the following path (../images/about-amssuites.png). Normally this path should work but it does not display my image. I have even use the browse function in dreamweaver and selected the image and even that won't work. I have tried several paths but for me it is obvious there might be something else wrong. When i refer to an image in the layout.css stylesheet it can find the image without any problem. Who is able to help me. If you need more info please let me know.

Thank you,

for example...
