References using relative paths in scripts

References using relative paths in scriptsApril 7, 2006 @ 11:11am
I'm using JavaScript to display random images. In the script, I refer to the image files using relative paths, so something like "images_random/image01.jpg".

I would think this refers to the FlexCMS URL plus the image path. On the home page, this is indeed the case and the image file is displayed correctly. However, on all other pages, 'index.php' is added to the URL, and the image reference is broken. Is there an easy way around this?

Would it be better if I did this in PHP? (That's not a big deal, I just had a JS script ready to use.) Does the .$BaseURL. variable take this into account, or would I run into the same thing?

Yes, you'll need to connect it to the FlexCMS paths in some way. The easiest is to use PHP and reference the variables FlexCMS makes available for you.

Here are a few of the variables available that you may find useful:

$BaseURL - base location of the site, such as "http://www.flexcms.com"

$ImagesURL - base location for images (as specified in the Site Settings section), such as "http://www.flexcms.com/images"

$TemplateImagesURL - path to the template folder currently in use (useful if you wish to use menu images, for example, and have them change when the template is changed), such as "http://www.flexcms.com/templates/template_name"

Hope that helps. Feel free to paste the code in here if you're still having problems getting it working.
