Hi there,

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?

Any help is much appreciated.

PS I'm not sure if was worth mentioning but in my Page.php file I am concatenating my css and js files like so:

	// ******************** concatenate all javascript and css ******************** //
	$theme_folder = sprintf('themes/%s', SSViewer::current_theme());

		$js_files = array(
			sprintf('%s/js/jquery.1.9.1.min.js', $theme_folder),
			sprintf('%s/js/common.js', $theme_folder), 

		$css_files = array(
				sprintf('%s/css/theme.css', $theme_folder),
		foreach($js_files as $js) {

		foreach($css_files as $css) {

			Requirements::combine_files("js.js", $js_files);
			Requirements::combine_files("css.css", $css_files);
	// ******************** end concatenation ******************** //
