Images not displaying (3 posts)

    I've re-uploaded using Nvu: http://www.totlhealth.com/DRY_SKIN.html and DRY SKIN_files (folder). The images will not display.

    I know they are 'local' files, don't know what to do or how to make them properly display.

    Also, I see there is now KOMPOZER as an improved (?)editor. When it asks for ftp URL exactly do I enter: ftp:ftp://fetch.com/76.162.22.16/dochow
    [Webhost is ixwebhosting, but I've always used Fetch as ftp client.]

    Hi,

    Your webpage is looking for the files on your Mac's hard drive; your webpage has the wrong link to the files.

    Instead of linking to:

    file:///Documents/Total%20Health%20WEBSITE%20Files/DRY%20SKIN_files/drysknbanner.jpg

    You should just link to:

    DRY%20SKIN_files/drysknbanner.jpg

    and it should find the images properly. Nvu should be able to create the links correctly when you link to the images when you are designing your website; you should talk with the Nvu folks to find out why this is not happening. But you should be able to edit them manually to fix the problem.

    When entering your FTP URL, you should not include fetch.com in the URL. Fetch is just a program on your Macintosh, it is not part of your website or FTP address at all.

    You can find out your FTP URL by connecting to your FTP site with Fetch, going to the Edit menu, and choosing Copy Fetch Address. This will put your FTP URL on the clipboard.

    Thanks,
