I'm not using <% base_tag %> in my templates.

In the WYSIWYG an image inserted from the assests folder for example does so like: src="asseets/... where if viewed in a page like will be looking for the image in the product/assets folder which does not exist.

the image shows fine in the WYSIWYG because the admin interface uses a base tag.

Is there a simple way to have a preceding slash in the image's src value as default?

Or even a dirty hack to just make it work until I can figure out a neater way?

Thanks in advance

Nevermind about this post...

I have realised that Silverstripe needs the base tag for other things (like the admin login page) and uses it in the admin section anyway, so it's probably better to keep it.

I would like to see this base tag thing as optional rather than forced but it's not all bad...
