Support » Fixing WordPress » images don’t show properly

  • I’m having a strange issue with images in my blog (

    Just recently my images in the entries on the front page of my blog haven’t been showing properly. If I go into “Write Post” they preview properly and everything looks fine. When I go to the actual post though the images don’t show up.

    I’ve tried viewing them in IE, NetScape, and Firefox and have the same problem so I don’t think that it’s a browser issue. I’ve also tried it from multiple machines via multiple connections and same problem.

    The tags I’m using look like this:

    <img src=’/wp-content/photos/orangecar.jpg’ alt=’orange classic car’ />

    Any ideas? I’m very confused about it.

  • Do you have a specific post this is occuring on?

    I checked your site and the one with orangecar.jpg looks fine from here (on both the home and single post pages). Using Firefox 1.0.3 on XP.

    See this thread, it may help.

    I can see the pictures in the post titled “life is what happens…”.

    Typically any post on the front page of the site has done this sporadically. I noticed a couple of minutes after I made the post to the forum it the images began appearing, however, 10 minutes from now they’ll disappear again.

    Yesterday it happened two or three times. I don’t think it is a code issue but I’m not sure where to look.

    I do appreciate your input.

    SOLUTION FOUND: I modified the tag and included an absolute URL reference to the images. This seemed to fix it on all browsers.

    It’s odd that it only seemed to affect things on the front page and that it seemed to be sporadic.

    Thank you folks for pointing out that thread and all of your help.
