  • Check your coding, he may have added a “Random-Image display” which should be in your head of one of your PHP files, it could be anywhere, depeds where the code of the image displaying this is occuring, try to find the title of this face and source, and do a Ctrl+F find for the source name on each folder.

    Hope this helps,

    Here is the image source. Probably not much help


    Thanks for taking the time to lend me a hand!

    I was able to figure it out. Duh, I was “hot linking” to my own site on my site. Apparently WP Super Cache has an anti-hot linking feature (authored by Andrea Pernici) that I was not aware of…it displayed Mr Pernici’s photo in place of my own images.

    All is working now! Thanks again!
