Image links Edit

Highlight: Use root-relative URLs for image links.

When you’re including an image that is served from the same domain as your document or page, use a root-relative URL starting with /. Use this root-relative URL format (starting from the site root), even if you’re linking to a page in the same directory as the page you’re linking from.

{% codetabs %}
{% HTML %}
Insert the URL in the src attribute of the <img> element:

  alt=&quot;The WordPress mascot Wapuu.&quot;

{% Markdown %}
Insert the URL in parentheses after the image’s alt text:

![The WordPress mascot Wapuu.](/assets/images/wapuu.png)

{% end %}
