Ok you want to add an image to a Magento CMS page or static block.

But what image path to use?

If you are in the habbit of hard coding in long /skin/frontend/theme_name_here/ect/ect/ect/ paths – STOP!

Make use of Magento’s understanding and use of its theme structure and use this:

{{skin url=’images/dog-playing.jpg’}}

Magento will then check for the actual presence of the image, in the “theme_name_here” directory first, and display the image.

If there isnt one there it will then defaults to “default” directory and display the image from there instead.

Hope that help keep your Magento image paths nice and clean
