i see your header fine. i assume you found what was wrong.
11-04-2005, 03:19 PM
no. i haven't yet. it seems to work with the Sugar template, but when i change to Pepper i get the "?" where the header should be.

do you see a red background or grey?

"/nlphotonews/images/header.png was not found on this server."
apparently you have not yet uploaded your header image file to your server correctly.

yeah....not sure how else to upload it. i've been putting it up in the folder with the other .png files. weird that the other template works but this doesn't
thanks for helping

as /images/ does not exist - perhaps you uploaded to a different folder... possibly withing the pepper template folder? in this case your url to the image source within your template <img> tag is not correct. find out where your image really is!

i can see the header.png in the images folder, within the specific templates folder on my server. i've tried deleting and reuploading it.

well right now you are pointing to just /images/header.png
if it is in your template folder (assuming it is called 'pepper' it should point to /templates/pepper/header.png or /templates/pepper/images/header.png

ok. so where do i change that? sorry for all the questions. not really good with this stuff

when i just open the html docs ie "image_template.html"
it has the header in there.

This has nothing to do with the topic, I just find it humerous that there is a nlphoto on the board.
There should be:

you need to change the following line in your template html files... located within /templates/templatename/
<a href="index.php"><img src="images/header.png" width="600" border="0" /></a>
change it to:
<a href="index.php"><img src="templates/templatename/images/header.png" width="600" border="0" /></a>
then, through ftp upload your header.png to templates/templatename/images/
hope this helps.

can i use text edit for that? sorry for all the questions
11-04-2005, 03:53 PM
yes you can! just be sure to reupload through ftp. something simple like notepad is perfect for the job!
11-04-2005, 03:57 PM
please forgive my igonorance. how do i open these template files in Text Edit so i can read and edit the html?
as you can tell, i know nothing about web development
thanks for being patient
11-04-2005, 04:13 PM
you shouldn't need to know anything about web development. simply open the html file as you would normally open a text file - html is really just plain text with a different file extension.
11-04-2005, 04:29 PM
well thanks for that. i figured out how to change those files...and i reuploaded everything. still no luck.
not sure what i'm doing wrong. just weird that the other template is working and i did the same thing.
11-04-2005, 04:40 PM
now when i just open the template.html files in Safari they aren't showing the header anymore. just the "?"
looks like i'm making it worse. sorry
11-04-2005, 04:48 PM
think i got it. THANKS a LOT
Yeap - now it works fine :D
