The dreaded "RED X" instead of photos on Scouter.com website?

Recommended Posts

Ok - what am I doing wrong?

 

I created an html file webpage in Microsoft Office

 

I named it "index.html"

 

I separately uploaded 3 pictures in my upload space at Scouter.com

 

 

But when I go to the webpage

 

http://troops.scouter.com/ak/troop118/

 

nothing, picture wise, shows up except the dreaded "red X"

 

Help?????

Did you upload (transfer) the pictures to the website?

 

You have to upload the web page and the pictures separately. When you upload the web page it will not upload the pictures for you, you will have to select each picture to upload.

 

Here is one of the images the web page is looking for,

 

v:imagedata src="index_files/image005.gif"

actually, yes I did upload the pictures separately from the index.html file. They are all separately in the ftp space provided by scouter.com

 

I am sure whatever I have done is easily corrected though... I wonder if I need to create a separate folder in the ftp space called "index_files" ?

 

Also... I did not upload any photos called "image005.gif" so I wonder if that is the problem, maybe I have to rename every picture and THEN upload them again???

 

Gosh now I am confused!

OK - the file name I uploaded was "AACouncilPatch" though.. so it should be fine no?

LOL for whatever reason I can't even edit my own message above... because somehow the html stuff was left out... it should read - -

 

this line - v:imagedata src="index_files/image005.gif" o:title="AACouncilPatch"

I see on your other posting that you said you did upload the images.

Go to http://www.scouter.com/hosting/webaccount.asp you will have to sign in to get there.

 

You will see a list of all of the files for your website, make sure the pictures are there

Make sure the HTML page name of the pitcures match what you uploaded.

 

this is what you should see

I used Microsoft Office 2003 - create new office document - webpage... saved it as an .html. I uploaded the index.html and the photos separately

 

Here's what it says I have uploaded...

Now I just found the "index_files" folder which was created on the desktop along with the index.html file. I uploaded every one of the items in that folder separately... now my ftp space looks like this...

I have not used word to create a website, so bear with me here.

 

It sure looks like your HTML page is looking for the image

index_files/image005.gif

 

You uploaded it as AACouncilPatch.gif

 

try remnaming that file on your PC to image005.gif and uploading it to the site again using the name image005.gif and see what happens.

We are posting at the same time. :)

 

But now I see a woodgrain background that was not there before.

I am going have a look at the image for the background to see if I can get some clues.

 

Have I ever told anyone how much I love to read HTML code!

It was a pretty simple thing... and sometimes we just need someone else to point out the obvious :)

 

Thank you so much Dan,
