I can't set background image in my scss file using create-react-app

Hey guys,

I’m getting this error:

You attempted to import ../../../public/background_image.jpeg which falls outside of the project src/ directory. Relative imports outside of src/ are not supported.

First I had image in src folder and got this error, then I tried to find the solution and found that you should have images in /public folder but I’m getting the same error.

What should I do?

Would really appreciate help, thanks!

You shouldn’t use import in your scss file to use an image. Use a simple background-url: and give it path to a location where your image file lives.

Put the image in public.

.my-cool-class {
  background-image: url('background_image.jpeg');

I’m having the same problem and this

background-image: url(‘background_image.jpeg’);

doesn’t work and I have the image in the public folder :frowning:
