I did a custom module and added a custom css. All worked fine, but this css has some images linked directly like: background-image:url(./img/digit-sm.png);. And obviously has its folder img on the same level.

So I decided to change these path to ./../images/digit-sm.png and put the img folder on (renaming it):


The problem is magento can't find these images, but the url is correct:


So I looked inside this folder and there aren't these images. Why? I tried everything, every command, upgrade, compile, static-deploy, cache and nothing. I need to do something more? How can I indicate magento to copy these files on pub/static?

If I put manually these images everything works like a charm.

  • Nope... I changed the library for one that doesn't need images, so gave up this, are u trying to do something similar?

I answer my own question, I think this was a newbie mistake, maybe because I didn't deploy static files, permissions problemes, cache, etc.

I didn't have this problem anymore
