The module development and code questions forum is intended to aid those who are developing modules or writing code for Drupal.
Please note that this forum is also not intended for "Is there a module that does..." or "I need help with module x..." questions. It's also not a place to ask developers to write your code for you. Please respect this.
Please do not post general discussions intended to target module developers. If the question you have isn't specifically related to writing a drupal module, please post it in a more appropriate forum.
If you you have drupal installed already and are seeking a module that does a specific task, have a question about a specific module and what it does or if it will fit your use case, please place your questions in the Post installation forum.
If you have a problem or question about a specific module, you should create an issue in the module's issue queue (after checking for an existing issue first).
If you don't have drupal installed yet, please place your questions in the Before you start forum.
My question is how do I reference one of the image files from the myModule.css file.
From a PHP file I would use base_path() and/or drupal_get_path() to get the absolute path to a point in the file tree where there rest of the tree is fixed and known. but these functions cannot be used in css.
I wrote the "Metis" module for a non-profit project I'm collaborating with. Now I'm working on an upgrade of the website to Drupal 7 and I need to have a D7 version of the module. But I'm not a very experienced module developer, which is why I'm seeking for help.
The module isn't really complex. Basically, it provides a field (in D6: CCK field) that contains a checkbox and, if activated, saves a so called "metis code" to include it in the HTML source.
