I uploaded WordPress on my host's server, and tried creating a new folder in my ftp to store images I'd like to direct link from other web sites like Myspace.com. I created the images folder and added some images, and tried to link to them, but the images don't show up and instead returns a 404 error page from my wordpress site. I figure there is some kind of function that prevents direct linking of images or something, and I'd like to remove it or change it.
Does anyone know how to correct this problem? Thanks for the help.
