Use CSS to show two div's with background image over a containing div

Tags: css,css3,html

Problem :

How can I use css to show two div's with background image over a containing div with a color gradient for its background image? I am attempting to do this with an page, and the html generated looks like this:

<div id="TopContainer>
    <div id="logos">
        <div id="logoOne" class="ImgContainer"></div>
        <div id="logoTwo" class="ImgContainerWide"><div>

And the relevant css look like this:

/********************styles for bar across master page-logos,img containers etc.     ********************/

    color: -moz-linear-gradient(bottom, #297381, #FFFFFF);
    color: -ms-linear-gradient(bottom, #297381, #FFFFFF);
    color: -webkit-linear-gradient(bottom, #297381,#FFFFFF);
    background:-moz-linear-gradient(bottom, #297381,#FFFFFF);
    background:-ms-linear-gradient(bottom, #297381,#FFFFFF);
    background:-webkit-linear-gradient(bottom, #297381,#FFFFFF);




For some reason the div's with image background's don't seem to be showing up at all,because when I use Chrome developer tools, and make the "logos" div transparent, the two image container's still aren't visible. Thank you in advance for the help.

Solution :

Most likely it's not working because ~ only works in server controls (server side), not in the client-side CSS. If it's up one directory from your css use this instead


Typically ~ gets you to the root application, so if you want to go to the root directory, use simply a /:


And lastly, depending on your situation, you can also use absolute paths (instead of the relative paths above), e.g.:
