After playing around with jQuery Mobile i had created a basic example page but could not get apples example code for creating a ‘splash screen’ to work.
[code type=”html”] <link rel=”apple-touch-startup-image” href=”startup.png”>
After allot of searching and testing i found the solution
[code type=”html”] <link rel=”apple-touch-startup-image” href=”http://www.rscnet.co.uk/alex/startup.png”>
The href needs to be the absolute path to the image you want to use! no idea why, but at least it works! i thought i would post it to help others who are having the same trouble locating the information as i did
