best way to display a db image in custom templates
Sorry if this is a dumb question...

I've got a table, and one of the fields is for uploading an image file. I notice in the default templates, the url used to display the image is:

http://www.example.com/path/to/db.cgi?cn=column_name&do=view_file&id=pk&db=table_name

Is that the best/only way to do that in a custom template? I know you can have image sources set to just about anything as long as it returns the proper information to the browser. But for some reason, I'm getting a lot of broken images with that kind of url. (Actually, even weirder, they appear correctly sometimes and broken other times, with no apparent rhyme or reason.) I'm not sure if this is some screw-up with the server, or whether there's a better url format I could be using?

As always, grateful for any suggestions. Thanks.
