Using images for backgrounds and popouts

Just using NorCascade for the first time, and I'm finding it great! I do have one small problem however.

I'm using background images for my top text links and a simple arrow GIF for the popout indicator. This works fine at the 'acatalog' level, but doesn't appear at the homepage or brochure level - presumably there's a path image to the relevant graphics files.

I've tried adding the files as additional resources in Actinic, but no luck. Any suggestions?

'Work in progress' test site is at

Your images should appear on Brochure pages other than the Brochure Home Page.

The Home Page is in the root of your site and NorCascade is expecting to be running from the acatalog directory, where it can directly access all files.

The simple solution is to manually FTP an extra copy of these images into your Site root.

The link you posted didn't work.

Norman, many thanks. I should have thought of that - the simplest solutions are often the, um... simplest!

Sorry, link should have been where the links are now working!
