Photos Not Appearing When Page is Uploaded to Web Host RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I formatted a page, including photos I downloaded onto the page from my computer, using Web 4. When I uploaded the page to my Web host, everything but the photos appeared. Do I need some special html coding before the photos will appear or what? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Right now the only coding that appears for the photos is "src......."

  • I used the "Insert picture from file" function to browse my computer to find the photo and then hit ok. The coding for one of the photos is:

    <img class="auto-style7" height="199" src="Photos%209/razor%20meeting%20photos%202012/ImageMagic_101912_131402/_DSC3810.jpeg" width="299" />

    Should the coding be different?

    Did you import the photos into the images folder "INSIDE" your webiste before you linked to them
    and then link to them there?
    You must do that, and then you must make sure they are published to your remote site.
    Your image links are pointing back to your computer.

  • You "... downloaded onto the page from my computer" some photos? How, exactly, did you do that? Are you aware that EW is NOT a WYSIWYG application? If the "src" attribute in your img element declarations is empty, that means that the page has no idea where to find those assets when rendered.

    Read the Forum FAQs and Guidelines - Start Here, then post a link to the published page, so that we can see the markup and CSS in situ. Until you do so, we cannot help you.

    cheers,

  • Well first thing I see is that you have spaces in file and folder names which means that the link to the photo can break if the encoding (%20) fails. So I'd suggest renaming the images.

    Without seeing the actual page there is no way we can tell from that snippet why it isn't showing. Two educated guesses though, first you have uploaded the html page but not the images. Second there could be something in your style or whatever it is that created the ImageMagic folder that is preventing it from showing either css or javascript.

  • Which part of "post a link to the published page" did you not understand? Markup does not exist in a vacuum. Please, as requested, read the Forum FAQs and Guidelines - Start Here, noting in particular the very first item in the Guidelines for the Forum:

    If you have a question about your website, please post a link to the page about which you have a question. Without being able to actually see the page and all related files that are involved with your issue, it’s often impossible for anyone to help you.

    That means precisely what it says. If you expect our help with your issue, please comply.

  • I contacted Bluehost where my web page is hosted and they told me how to correct the Expression Web 4 page so that the photos would now appear. Thank you Cheryl and Steve for your kind responses. As for you Scott, your public relations leaves much to be desired. I would rather deal with a two-year old having a tantrum than to have any further communications with you. Rest assured, I have no plans to use this site again.

  • Actually, Steve, that src attribute resolves to a standard relative path. As difficult as it is to read because of the encoding, src="Photos%209/razor%20meeting%20photos%202012/ImageMagic_101912_131402/_DSC3810.jpeg," without the encoding, reads as

    src="Photos 9/razor meeting photos 2012/ImageMagic_101912_131402/_DSC3810.jpeg"

    which presumes the existence of a "Photos 9" folder within the site root. Granted that the path should be corrected to remove the spaces, that still appears to be a valid relative path.

    AFAIK, EW will not preview without saving, and will not save without trying to add resources outside the site to the site, so it's unlikely that the resources are not within the site. More likely, there is a disconnect between the pathing of the local site and that of the remote site, or the OP did not publish the images, or published them to a different location, or with different spelling or capitalization, or...

    What the hell. We can speculate all bloody day, but we won't be able to say anything definitively until the OP gives us a link so we can check it out.
