[resolved] Broken Images on Media Uploader (3 posts)

    I am trying to upload new images onto my site via the media tab. The images upload seemingly fine but then appear as broken images - a plain white image with a small square in the middle with a line through it. Here's a link to what comes up on the preview, im not sure if this will show to other people but i'm going to try anyway; http://www.zondo.co.uk/?attachment_id=2297

    As far as i am aware I have not done anything new to the site recently that may have caused this.
    I have also already searched the support forums to find a solution as there are many similar looking posts but none of their solutions seem to fit my problem.

    Any help would be much appreciated, and thank you in advance.

    I think it's because of a special character issue in the image file name. There's a % symbol in there.

    For file names, to keep things simple and uniform, alpha-numeric characters only (a-z,0-9), all lower case and no special characters (~/"%;> etc). Also, NO SPACES!!!, a particular bugbear of mine. :)
