Can anyone help me? Bear with me as I'm not a techie or a youngster so please talk slowly...Every time I upload a page from my site some but not all of the thumbnails disappear and are replaced with a red cross. This is so frustrating as I keep redoing them but the same thing keeps happening, I thought it might be somthing to do with Internet Explorer but it's the same in Safari and Firefox.Jean

as requested this is the code where the thumbnail image should be:<td width="25%" height="285"><a href="tablecloths/green-apron.jpg"><img src="tablecloths/tn-green-apron.jpg" width="167" height="250" border="0"></a></td> <td width="29%" height="285"> <p><font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color="#3F4A7A" size="2"><b>Green gingham check apron</b></font></p>This image and several others were working fine until I did some work on a few pages and uploaded them.

Does this point to an image file? tablecloths/tn-green-apron.jpg
Not quite sure what you mean. Perhaps if you could view the page it may help. www.llph.co.uk/tablecloths.htmAs you can see there are several other thumbnail images now not working that have been fine for the last couple of years. As soon as I did some work on the page the problems started. Do you think it might be something to do with using Dreamweaver 8, I've always used the very old version Dreamweaver 2 but upgraded last year to the newer version. The thumbnails are showing 0 bytes on the remote server so am having to upload them from my local site to make them work again. But if I just upload from Dreamweaver they disappear with just a red x in one corner when viewed online.

The image file seems to be corrupt. Look at this: http://www.llph.co.uk/tablecloths/tn-gillean-apron.jpg
I've uploaded all the missing images to remote server and they're all working fine now. But if I were to upload them from Dreamweaver some would disappear again

Here's a thought.Check your file names in development (your computer). Are you using any uppercase? Dreamweaver may be uploading the file names AS IS and your other FTP program may be forcing lowercase.remember that on UNIX based servers, Picture.jpg and picture.jpg are two different files.Guy

May I ask where did you upload the images to? It seems that something wrong with the url. Have a look at the codes of my websit.<a href="http://www.toplampshade.com/table-lamp-shade/lampshade-1535.html"><img src="/thumbnail-img/lamp-shade-1535.jpg" alt="Rectangle Cut Corner Fabric Table Lamp Shade" class="productimg"/></a>The url of the image above is http://www.toplampshade.com/thumbnail-img/...-shade-1535.jpgand src is coded as src="/thumbnail-img/lamp-shade-1535.jpg" With a / and without a / are not the same.
