Support » Fixing WordPress » Broken Image LInks

  • Well, I can upload images to my server and link to them in html, and it works perfectly.

    However, when I try to insert an image into a post, the image appears broken, like it can’t find it.

    Then, when I navigate to the URL of the image, it says quicktime needs permission to run this, and I click OK, and it displays the image.

    And I can use css to set the background of something to an image, and that will show up.

    Also, they’re broken when I try to preview them in the library.

  • It appears your WordPress files used to be in the /wordpress sub-directory (which is now empty). The problem may be, now that you’ve moved WordPress to root, the WordPress URL’s still contain the sub-directory “/wordpress” in the path.

    I would guess that might also be why your site isn’t loading any style sheets. I would imagine that’s probably what is affecting the image paths as well.

    Good suggestion, but it was actually doing that before…can you take a look again? I fixed the link.

    There isn’t any 404 in the server responses, and the first missing image on that page is viewable in a browser (using the quicktime plugin) with no problem:

    The first thing that comes to mind is:

    1) if they’re all .tiff images, then the Quicktime plugin will definitely try to open them. I’m not up to speed with browser support for .tiff extensions, but if I remember correctly, it usually involves installing a plugin of some sort to view them properly.

    2) they’re huge in IE. Way too big for the confines of your themes content area. Take a look at them in IE if you haven’t already. The size/resize issue is pretty obvious when viewed in IE.

    Maybe try converting to .png or .jpg and choosing a smaller size option for the post area, then linking to the full size version when you insert them.

    Yes, per the above, .tiff images don’t work well on websites – some browsers won’t display them at all…
