View Full Version : coding question for image on "about" page
12-12-2006, 02:55 AM
i am trying to add an image of me on the "about" page and through some web hunting came up with the following code which i added to the about_template:
<img src="/applications/xampp/htdocs/pixelpost/templates/lightwhitetwo/img/mg d004.jpg"
the image appeared on my html editor, but only a small blue box with a ? in it appeared on the actual about page.
what am i missing to make this work?

Could you provide a link to your page? Then I can probably give the right code to fix it.

/applications/xampp/htdocs/pixelpost/templates/lightwhitetwo/img/mg d004.jpgThat looks like the local path of your local apache installation.
To display it in web, be sure you uploaded the photo to your server into the folder "templates/lightwhitetwo/img/".
Use this HTML:
<img src="templates/lightwhitetwo/img/mg d004.jpg"

Try this as the path:
You're probably on a unix server so capitals in a filename are important. This picture does work:
