I am attempting to use [sytem-asset:local] in an xml block, but it doesn't seem to work. The published page actually renders [sytem-asset:local]. Is the tag only available in certain asset types?

    Hmm... I am not having an issue with this. But I am on 6.7.
    Here are some things to check:
    1. Verify that you are on 6.2 or later, I believe that is when that tag became available.
    2. Verify that the image is in the location that you specify it being within the Site your page is.
    3. You are in a Site.
    4. Is it rendering within your CMS? It should be.

    Please let me know if this helps and what the results to the above questions are.

    Here is the sample of my XML block that worked:
    <img src="[system-asset:local]/files/images/bg01.jpg[/system-asset:local]"/>

    Actually. I think I just spotted it. You have "sytem-asset:local" change those to "system-asset:local".

    DOH! You are correct. I had the following

    <link href="[sytem-asset:local]/common/css/site.css[/system-asset:local]" media="screen" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

    I hate when you can stare at something for so long and not see the small typo.

    If you only knew how many times I have typed "sytem-asset". Glad I could help!
