If you don't want to mess up with ugly urls and versions, I would suggest adding a css-file to your web resource and make a div in your velocity and embedd the image via a backgroundimage


use base64-encoding to embed the image directly to your template.


you can use the url to the image


But if you change the plugin key or the module, you always need to rember to change the path to the image...

Thanks a lot. It works!

Somebody there who can help me?
