Broken Images in Admin view

I'm sure I have a path setting wrong somewhere.

All images on the live site are fine. However they are all broken on the admin side.

Here is an example path to one of them:

Obviously the path should not include "admin_cms" but I don't know what file(s) to edit where it wont screw up the path on the server.

Thanks in advance.

Another question

Why is the code produced by the WebAssist > CMS > add Content to PCMS different from the code in the Developer Notes section in the Admin?

Is one wrong? One has an include statement and the other does not.

Added by the "add Content to PCMS":
<?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'Shared', 'Menu'); ?>

In the Developers Notes:
echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'Shared', 'Menu', false);

Fixed - Thanks Ray!

Here is the answer in case anyone comes across this with the same issue. Most likely this is old news and I was the only one that had the issue.

It's as simple as making sure your paths are site relative rather than just page relative so that they can be read from any directory properly. For example on my index page an image link with a correct path of: images/thisimage.jpg which works fine in the site, is broken in the admin_cms directory. Adding a "/" in front makes it accessible from anywhere: /images/thisimage.jpg

I know, duh!

The answer to my second question regarding the difference in the code in developer notes and what is produced in dreamweaver is the include in developer notes is already covered in the "require_once" code at the beginning of the page. Makes sense now.
