We highly recommend using the"from the root" type of path when incorporating Pickle into your web pages.
"From the root" path example:
Notice the "/" at the beggining? This method is explained in detail on the "Relative and Absolute" page.
Using the "from the root" method provides the greatest flexability with regard to security and ease in setting up your pages.
The Big Idea
If a visitor arrives at your website by typing in your domain name as follows:
... and you've set up Pickle within your webpage to use the "www" address as follows:
<link href="http://www.youriste.com/pickle/skins/black_line/_stylesheet.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
... Then there is a high likelyhood that a security "flag" will be raised because the domain names are not identical. Any one of the following "things" can raise the proverbial "flag" and cause the player to not function properly:
- The web server
- Browser settings
PC operating system configuration (including third party applications users may install)
The "from the root" method, eleviates any potential for this kind of issue to arise.
