Appendix Adding Page Assets There are several of the Fancy Image stacks that require you to source image files that are external to the stack itself. There are two primary ways to accomplish this: manually uploading to the server and utilizing the page assets feature in Rapidweaver.

Manually Uploading to Server You can manually upload the image files to your web server via your favorite FTP program. Then you can configure the file path to the location that the files were copied to. 1. I upload a file called my_image.jpg to my webserver in the folder called assets. 2. I can verify my path by going to http://joeworkman.net/assets/my_image.jpg. 3. Once I have verified the image is in the location, I can configure my Image Path to be /assets/my_image.jpg.

If your Rapidweaver page is the only page that is contained within its folder, than the path to your image will be “assets/my_image.jpg”. b. If your Rapidweaver page (for this example: index.html) is NOT the only page that is contained within its folder, than the path to your image will be “index_assets/my_image.jpg” (%page_name%_assets/%image_name%).
