    Question My images not viewable. why?

    I have just produced a great new site 'bestdecorators.co.uk' using an 'AllWebCo' template. Only problem is despite AllwebCo saying it has 90 percent browser compatability no-one else sees the images or navigation bar and consequently cannot get past the first page. I edited in dreamweaver and when I started messages came up saying images were not in the root folder so I supect this might be a problem. However, why can I see the whole site in my internet explorer browser and no-one else can and why can I people not see them if the files are present in my remote folder. Can anyone help?

    It's because you've made an absolutely classic mistake when referencing your pictures. To quote from your code:

    <IMG SRC="file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/Alan%20lancaster/My%20Documents/perfection/picts/fadedown.jpg" HEIGHT="250" WIDTH="60" border="0" alt="image">

    I don't have access to your hard drive, which is why the images don't show. In fact, nobody other than you has access...

    When you create the file in future make sure all the images are in the same directory on your hard drive (or a sub directory) and then when you tell dreamweaver etc to insert them it will probably give you a relative link. The other alternative is to open the file in notepad and change the lines that look like the one above to:

    <IMG SRC="fadedown.jpg" HEIGHT="250" WIDTH="60" border="0" alt="image">

    assuming the images are in the same directory as the folder.

    excellent answer.

    If you dont mind me asking, which template did you purchase off AllWebCo?
