Really weird image bug? (4 posts)

    Hey,

    Can anyone explain this? Ive made my own template page, all works fine etc, but this time I want an image as a link. So I put in:

    <img src="/images/photomanip.png" alt="Photo Manipulation" border="0"/>

    No image loads.

    However if I use an image that ive already used in the same way, (ie the header) it works fine. Its like if I put new images in my images folder they dont load up.
    I can use url links, but thats bad for loading times and banwidth. Any suggestions?

    Always use absolute - not relative - image urls.

    I thought that was bad on the bandwidth though?

    Not especially. More importantly, WP won't work predictably with relative urls.
