Image now showing up :/
Hi,

On GLinks 3.0.0, I'm trying to get an image to show up in the link.html template. I know the image tag is fine, as you can see it in the source. However, it won't show up :/ I've tried setting the style="none" inside the <tr>, but that doesn't work either :(

The most annoying part, is that almost idential HTML works for images a little bit further down;

Code:
<img src="http://www.domain.com/directory/images/image1/1/small-1-coolgift-logo.gif" />

DOESN'T work.

Code:
<img src="http://www.domain.com/directory/images/american_express.gif" />

DOES WORK.

Any ideas? Unsure

TIA

Hi Andy,

Just some common things to try in case you haven't already.

1. Try doing a full browser refresh like Ctrl-Refresh on IE for eg. to make sure you haven't got a caching issue.

2. Are you able to see the image if you type in the full URL in the browser address box as in
http://www.domain.com/directory/images/image1/1/small-1-coolgift-logo.gif ?

3. Double check you haven't got a case mismatch issue.

Good luck.

Andy,
this may sound weird but I had a similar issue that was believe it or not due to Norton Internet Security and because I was using it on all the computers I was getting the same issue on all.
I also recently had a really bad flickering effect (so bad that the image would dissapear and then reappear 3 secs later) that you sometimes come across with CSS when the user has a really low bandwidth but I was getting this on a 8 meg connection due to Norton Internet Security.

Andy,

Make sure the image has enough room to display. I had this issue, when the image was not in the right area, and/or the image was not given enough room to display. Unlike tables, CSS won't expand to include the additional room. It silently bombs, and is a b**ch to figure out.

If this isn't with CSS, does the url as displayed in the generated html page, actually bring up the image? (did you cut/paste it into the address bar to see if the image would load on it's own?)

Lately I've been having some odd issues like this. I'm running Norton too, so it might be related to that. I have one machine that still runs only McAfee, so I guess I'll try debugging by checking with that machine before I start banging my head on the desk <G>

Hi,

It turned out the image had a CHMOD of 644, and wouldn't show up :( I've CHMODed it to 666, and now its working fine :)

The part that had me confused, was that not even a "red-cross" box appeared on the page, which on normal sites it would =)

Thanks for the replys guys... much appreciated.
