Images not showing in editor for Content pages

Hi,

I am just getting to do some actual content for the new site and I seem to have a problem...

I open the Home page to edit it... so far so good!
I place the cursor at the top left corner... again so far so good!
I click on the Image icon then click on Browse Server...
I hunt around till I find the images I want then I upload.... yet again so far so good!
I select and upload images to the "images" folder... no problems here either!
I select the image I want from the "images" folder BUT instead of showing the image under the select button all I see is a placeholder (square with red X in corner)....

Did I miss something in the install?

Thanks

Phill

Re: Images not showing in editor for Content pages

Hi Phill, I haven't seen that problem before. What format is your image file (JPG, PNG)? Have you tried selecting it anyway, and see if it appears okay on the site? Have you made sure that the uploaded image has the same file size as the local version?

If you want to test if the image is somehow corrupted or incompatible with your web browser, you could create a local HTML file like this, put your image in the same directory, replace the image file name, and open it with your web browser:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head></head>
<body><img src="my_image.jpg"></body>
</html>

Re: Images not showing in editor for Content pages

Jamie,

Thanks for the tip, that is a good test tool.

When I created an HTML file with the code you gave it worked... the image displayed.

The image I used was one of the same images I uploaded to my test site.  I tried uploading several jpg as well as gif files... they are all showing the same in the web site...  I also tried using it on a page and it only displayed as a place marker with a red x in it.

I am using the original HOME page from the original mojoportal download.  All the original images of the dog work fine.  It only happens to images I have uploaded.  Unfortunately I have not uploaded the site yet, still working on my local machine till I get the styles sorted out.

Very strange!!!

Well I just uploaded the CSS files etc, refreshed the site them tried to put an image of the Home page... it worked!  (www.AllIslander.com ) I have no idea why it doesn't on my local machine... but as long as it works on the server that's okay...

So thanks Jamie I guess this is a done deal and closed off..

Re: Images not showing in editor for Content pages

Okay I finally found the problem...

It is the naming of the files... if you have a bracket (i.e. Filename (2).jpg).

It will upload but NOT display.
