I am a codeignite newbie and tried to add an image in my file under view folder.

I add
Code:
<img src="../images/myImage.jpg"></img>
to my service_view.php. All I can see is a broken link of a small icon.

however, if I change my path to

Code:
<img src="../../user_guide/images/myImage.jpg"></img>
I can see the image.

My file system is as follow:

Code:
application-
   view ->folder    (where service_view.php is located)
   images -> folder   (where myImage.jpg is located)

user_guide-
   images ->folder  ((where myImage.jpg is located))


Can anyone help me about this? Thanks a lot!

You should really use the base_url or img helper to create absolute paths - http://ellislab.com/codeigniter/user-gui...r.html#img
Code:
<img src="&lt;?php echo base_url(); ?&gt;images/myImage.jpg" />
or
&lt;?php echo img('images/myImage.jpg'); ?&gt;

By the way the image html tag doesn't have a closing tag.
