Can not load CSS


I did a route like below: Route::get('/hello/{name?}/{email?}', function($name = 'world',$email = 'world@www.com') { $data = [ 'name'=>$name, 'email'=>$email ]; return View::make('hello1')->with($data); });

and Hello page css link like below: <link rel="stylesheet" href="./css/foundation.css">

however when I load page for testing by the url:


it says the css not found, then I see the css get url is


looks like it's not point to public/css

how can I make that work?

Thanks Bruce

There is a Laravel keyword to access the css/js.. search for it in laravel site. i think it might be set in config files..

ha, got it

can use public_path

Than you :)

Suggest you use Request::root() and remember to do the .JS <script> tag too or you are losing a lot of functionality

<link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php Request::root() ?>/css/foundation.css" />
<script src="<?php Request::root() ?>/js/vendor/modernizr.js"></script>
