Problem :

i'm creating a simple HTML site with css and javascript. so there are folders named css and scripts also images for images. the Project structure is like in this image

enter image description here

The problem i have is how to set the paths for the css, images and js files from the html

i have styles.css file with the following style

html {
padding-top: 25px;  
background-image: url(images/bg_page.png); 


the link to styles.css file from html like this

<title>Chapter 2</title>
<link  href="css/styles.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<link href="" rel="stylesheet" />

problem: it doesn't set the styles in the css to the html. I don't know how to set the image URL path in css as well. Any one who uses VS 2012, would be able to fix this path problems?

There is this "solution1" folder that it creates, which is kind of annoying. so i wonder is there a better way to organize folders and files especially in VS 2012?


Solution :

Are you certain that you set up different folders? Just because the solution shows different folders doesn't mean that actual folders have been created. Check your source folder to make sure.

If the folders exist, try adding / before images in background-image in your css.
