    I am having the same problem. I changed the permalinks to custom /%postname%/ so the name of the blog appears in the url. But now the blogs can't finds any of my imgaes, including my navi buttons. So, I had to change the permalinks back to the default, which sucks for SEO. I need help...I am not smart enough to figure this out on my own.

    i too fall into this category! my blog: http://savelandthecity.com/ loads fine and looks just like it's supposed to (i know certain post pics are'nt appearing, that's not the issue though). My problem is when i click on the "Tags" or "categories" or 2nd 3rd etc. pages the template loads without the images. (categories for example - http://savelandthecity.com/category/real-estate) the header and the image in the right tool bar don't load??? please help me and the other 2 above with this issue. It all started happeneing when i changed my permalink settings from "default" to /%postname%

    somebody please help tackle this issue!!!

    GOT IT!!! it seems the issue we're having is with Absolute versus Relative Links. using my FTP i changed my header image to now have a "/"

    before the code linking to the image in the header looked like this:
    <img src="wp-content/themes/wpthemegen/images/header.png" alt="SavelAndTheCity.com" width="855" height="150" border="0"/> *notice the missing "/" just before "wp-content...". By making the image Absolute instead of realitive, it now works! The correct way of doing it is:

    <img src="/wp-content/themes/wpthemegen/images/header.png" alt="SavelAndTheCity.com" width="855" height="150" border="0"/>

    if you've included images in your sidebar, then go into the text widgets via the dashboard and add the "/" where needed.
