    Hi -

    I am trying to show a DIV only on the home page. Right now I am trying to add an image to the DIV. It shows text just fine. I am using the following code but only the alt text shows up no image.

    <!--my static header experiment 08_07_08 -->
    <?php if (is_home())
    echo '<div id="mystatic">
    <img src="images/siteimages/static1.jpg" alt="horses collage 1" />
    </div>';
    ?>

    I am just learning all of this so I am open to suggestions.

    Thank You,
    CO

    BTW I also tried:

    <div id="mystatic">
    <?php if (is_home()) echo '<img src="images/siteimages/static1.jpg" alt="horses collage 1" /> '; ?>
    </div>

    Thank Again,
    CO

    It sounds like your browser can't find the images you want it to show. Try using absolute rather than relative links. Instead of:

    <img src="images/siteimages/static1.jpg">

    use something like:

    <img src="http://yoursite.com/images/siteimages/static.jpg">

    Avoid relative links in your templates except in your stylesheets.
