missing GIFs (2 posts)

    hi there

    I am using OSX on an emac with Fetch 3.0.3

    I am trying to update my offices' web page (using Dreamweaver) and have been successful with all of my text edits.

    However, with GIFs and JPEGs its been a different story.

    I have put the new GIFs in the relevant image directory.
    However, when I view the webpage, I only get a blank space with the jpeg icon where my GIF should be. http://ywam.ca/vancouver/dts_hockey.html

    Am I missing an important link somewere?
    Is this a Dreamweaver thing and not Fetch?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    Cheers,

    ralph

    Hi Ralph,

    The problem is the links to the images aren't correct (or possibly the images aren't where you're expecting them to be). The images are there, but you webpage is looking for them in the wrong place. For instance, on the page you mentioned, one of your image links is:

    http://ywam.ca/images/hockey/hockey_logo_black.gif

    but the image is really at:

    http://ywam.ca/vancouver/images/hockey/hockey_logo_black.gif

    The other image link is missing the "vancouver" bit as well. I don't know if this is a problem with your Dreamweaver set up, or with where the images folder is on the server (maybe you didn't mean to put it inside the "vancouver" folder).

    The arrangement of folders on the Macintosh and the server must be the same. If the "images" folder is not inside the "vancouver" folder on the Macintosh, it should not be inside the "vancouver" folder on the server. If you want the "images" folder to be inside the "vancouver" folder on the server, it must be inside the "vancouver" folder on your Macintosh, and you should redo your Dreamweaver links.

    Hopefully this gives you enough information to sort out the problem. Please let us know if you have more questions.

    Thanks,
