Altering the CSS image route in the flexslider css file

Hi Zac Gordon I have downloaded the file and am following along to change the image pathway for our future images that we will be putting into the slider; however, the file that I just dl'd from wootheme is slightly different than the code you are modifying in the video.

You searched via URL in the video to find the image on line 50- something and in my flexslider.css all the URL's are at the beginning additionally the image name in the video is bg_direction_nav.png and in my image file the lone image is titled bg_play_pause.png

It appears there is a slight difference in our files. I was not able to alter the pathway in the flexslider.css, will this come back to haunt me down the line of this project?

Cheers

Search through the forums a bit, there are some patches for the latest version of the plugin :)

Thanks, I found the post and ended up using the 2.0 version from the project file over the newer 2.2 is this bad practice or okay in this case?
