Problem loading images in adobe bridge html photo gallery

Jun 11, 2012 8:42 AM

Tags: #cs5 #adobe #html

Can someone please, please help me!? I can not figure out why the images will not load in my adobe bridge html photo gallery cs5. I am not getting any error messages in Firefox and just the x in internet explorer.

 

Here is the link to the gallery page on the site: http://www.irishwetlands.ie/Gallery.html

 

I created the gallery as a html file for compatibality reasons due to accesbility issues with flash, and followed the general insturctions. The gallery folder is called wetlandsgallery and it is loading everything style-wise except the images themselves.

I then made the gallery within an iframe so it would be more similar to the other pages on the site and contain the menu bar - but no change on the lack of images!

 

Having looked around online I think it might be something to do with the bin folder?? Does this have some secutity somewhere thats protecting the images? I am also unsure if I filled in the FTP info correctly when creating the site as I was  getting the message "could not connect to FTP server" so I had to copy over the file from my hard drive to the server provider files. All the tutortials say to load your gallery and no mention of what to do when it won't connect to FTP server.

 

If you could also tell me how to edit the image sizes that would be a great help too, as any size changes I make to either the bin/large or bin/thumnail images makes no difference in what appears in the preview?

 

Help would be very greatfully appreciated as I am pulling my hair out trying to figure it out with no sucess and a possible bald patch!

 

Thanks in advance,

Áine

    This is the link to one of the missing images -

     

    <a href="content/_8686627884_large.html" onclick="return needThumbImgLink;">

    <img src="content/bin/images/thumb/_8686627884.jpg" id="ID0_1339410094003_thumb" alt="9 Spine Stickleback">

    </a>

     

    When you look on the remote site, is the image IN that location?

    Hello Áine,

     

    1. Is it really necessary to comment out this part in your source code?

     

    <!--<p><img src="images/GalleryImages/Gallery1_

                    -----stuff del-----

                    Grasshopper" title="Grasshopper" />

                     </p><br />-->

     

    Using your source code without these things I could see some of your images.

     

    2. Looking to your website with my IE8 into image 7 (e.g.) I saw this:

     

    drIr01.jpg

     

    what means there is a reference to a html file, not to an image. ???

     

    3. Here it becomes interesting (completely contrary to my point 2.), looking for your path:

    http://www.irishwetlands.ie/images/GalleryImages/Gallery1_Selection%20 of%20IRWC%20members%20at%20the%20Gearagh.jpg

     

    I can see this image in my IE8 (some people in front of a "wetland". But still I've to assume (as Murray already did too), that there is something wrong with your upload and the pathes.

     

    4. Allow me to make one brief point, we talked about here on several occasions:  please don't use spaces in image, folders or filenames. I'll quote Murray: In general, URL encoding spaces does not lead to problems. ... Whatever the details are, though, using spaces in filenames or paths is a bad practice which WILL lead to problems.

     

    5. What concerns the image sizes, maybe later (I didn't understand your question correctly I fear). There is still my language barrier, I'm sorry.

    Hi,

     

    I am having the exact same issue. When I upload my photos it comes up as a broken file. Why is this? What should be going into the FTP Server and Foler?

    I'd like to add that when I am using flash there is no issue at all. However I need to use HTML for a project.

    Hello Áine,

     

    back from a short journey I'll try to answer your last question.

     

    Concerning the upload: if it is not possible otherwise, it could help to ask your provider. Sometimes they have restrictions, that we do not know.

     

    To use Adobe's troubleshoot: http://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/kb/troubleshoot-ftp-issues-dreamwea ver-cs5.html.

     

    BUT in all these cases I'm not a friend of a detailed troubleshooting. It is one of the reasons why I prefer an external FTP program. The difficulties with which you have to fight encourage me in this opinion, not least because we always search for experts, we don't charge a "jack of all trades".

     

    For this reason, to manage, for example, several websites or to upload my files and sometimes for the opposite way, for a necessary download from my server or to use a "a site-wide synch", I'm using FileZilla. It simply looks easier for me to keep track of all operations precisely and generate or reflect easily the desired tree structure.

     

    Above all, FileZilla has a feature (translation from my German FileZilla) called "compare file list". Here it's possible to use file size or modification time as a criterion. There is also the possibility to "hide identical files", so that only these files which you want to redact remain visible.

     

    And even if it means you have to install a new program, I am convinced that there is an advantage. Here is the link to get it and where you can read informations about how it works:

    http://filezilla-project.org/ and http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Tutorial#Using_the_site_manager

     

    Mac: Mac OS X

    http://filezilla-project.org/download.php

     

    Of course, you also need all the access data to reach your server.

     

    Good luck

    Hans-Günter

    Hi,

     

    did you really upload a directory "images/GalleryImages/"? If yes, I fear I've to repeat my original recommendation to delete the blanks!

     

    Searching for: "http://www.irishwetlands.ie/images/GalleryImages1_Selection of IRWC members at the Gearagh.jpg" my browser answers with:

     

    http://www.irishwetlands.ie/images/GalleryImages/Gallery1_Selection%20 of%20IRWC%20members%20at%20the%20Gearagh.jpg

    Hi,

     

    whats about these "html"? Is that correct? No images > "jpg".

     

    http://www.irishwetlands.ie/wetlandsgallery/content/bin/images/large/_ 0086423411.html eg.
