Ok I've never come across this before. I've just uploaded a website for a client who had their own hosting (always a nightmare!) with TsoHost. Everything looks to be fine except for image paths in my css according to Firebug. Background-images seem to be pointing to the assets folder instead of my theme folder. Paths for @font-face however seem to find the webfont files no problem strangely. In my css the background-images are relative to the root and display fine on my localhost.
Has anyone encountered this before and is there something I can set in the config to default my paths in css?
