    Image Help

    MIF1
      Looking for some help if possible people.Now I run a website,but I am pretty basic on designing it and no absolute zero about coding-hahaha!!
      I have recently changed my File Transport Programme (FTP) and for some reason any new images are showing on my website as broken!
      I thought it was because the new images where showing on the macromedia files whil the old ones where grey boxes,but I changed the image URL to make them "grey" as well,but it didn't help.

      Any help would be very much appreciated,although please explain it like you would to a child-lol.

          sounds like a 'path' thing... the web browser, based on the code that you wrote, is looking for an image to be in a certain place but it ain't there.

          do you have a link to the page in question... or can you post the code?

            If you are running a website, the very best thing you can do is to learn
            some HTML and CSS. I don't see how you can successfully manage a website
            without that knowledge.

                Got to see the page and/or the code to know for sure.

                One think that has bitten me, is moving from a Windows to a Linux server.
                Windows absolutely doesn't care about case of a file name, Linux does. If
                you have image files that are xxx.jpg and you call for XXX.JPG on a windows
                server, it doesn't care, your image will work - Linux sees those two names
                as different - you have a broken link.

                I work from Win/PC, I am curious if the Mac's are like Linux - in that
                everything is case sensitive?

                  It looks pretty simple: the image files are not there. For example the image
                  for the 4th ad from the top on the right side is
                  http://www.stirlingalbion.com/waverly10.jpg. It's simply not where the code
                  is pointing to. The image is actually at
                  http://www.stirlingalbion.com/images/waverly10.jpg.

                  Change your code for the missing images and all should be well.

                  And, yes, as Murray suggested, take time to learn HTML & CSS or you will be
                  forever frustrated.

                    File location and code do not match.

                    Example:


                    http://www.stirlingalbion.com/images/tmackie%20.jpg

                    This is where the image actually is, but your code has it looking for it
                    here:

                    http://www.stirlingalbion.com/tmackie%20.jpg


                    Note the missing "images" from the path.

                    Check the Dreamweaver Help about "Setting up a new Dreamweaver site."

                      You have messed up the directory structure of some of your links. I see
                      that the Waverly Calendar image is linked to:
                      http://www.stirlingalbion.com/waverly10.jpg
                      but that the file is actually located at:
                      http://www.stirlingalbion.com/images/waverly10.jpg

                      I didn't check the other images, but I suspect that there are similar
                      problems.

                      I also noticed that some of your images are linked to offsite images. This
                      practice is generally frowned on because it increase overall internet
                      bandwidth. Usually it is better to have those photos in your own image
                      directory.

                      Good luck,

                        Thanks people for all the help.It was the "images" thing that was causing it,fixing it now.

                        I have thought about learning html,but it looks so daunting,I just don't know where to start!

                        How did everyone on here go about learning it?

                            HTML is really very simple. A good book on the subject would probably be
                            worthwhile, but in the absence of that, you might want to start out at
                            http://www.w3schools.com/html/

                            You're going to find Dreamweaver, or any other advanced tool a challenge
                            until you at least become familiar with the basics of HTML and CSS.
