Support » Fixing WordPress » Images not displaying

  • Hi all,

    I’ve added the following code to my footer.php template file to display a series of logos held in a ‘Sponsors’ sub-folder contained within the ‘Gallery’ directory I’ve created using the NextGEN plugin:

        $physicalPath = ABSPATH . "wp-content/gallery/sponsors/"; # Location of Sponsors Logos in Gallery Folder
        $thumbs = "thumbs/"; # Thumbnails Sub-folder within Sponsors Folder (to be ignored)
        if ($handle = opendir($physicalPath)) {
            while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
                if ($file != "." && $file != ".." && $file != rtrim($thumbs,"/")) {
                    $files[] = $file;
        foreach($files as $file) {
            $imageInfo = getimagesize($physicalPath.'/'.$file);
            $physHeight = $imageInfo[1];
            $physWidth = $imageInfo[0];
            echo '<img src="' . $physicalPath . $file . '" title="'.substr($file,0,-4).'" alt="'.substr($file,0,-4).'" height="'.$physHeight.'" width="'.$physWidth.'" />';

    Here’s a link to the development site. Scroll to the bottom of the page and within the Sponsors panel you’ll see the problem; the images aren’t displaying – it’s as if they can’t be found, yet I know for certain they are in the relevant folder on the server because I’ve checked.
    The width and height elements within the <img> tag are being collected correctly for each image, so it follows that the image must exist for that to happen – so why can’t it actually show it? It’s got me beat!

    Any ideas where I’m going wrong? I’ve studied and tweaked the code but to no avail. It’s probably pretty straightforward – I’m just tired!

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Your urls look a little strange.


    I would have thought it would be more like



    Thanks for your reply RichardUK.

    Your urls look a little strange.

    That’s as a result of ABSPATH within the PHP code snippet.
    I also have the same site on my local development PC and a typical <img> URL is “C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\wordpress/wp-content/gallery/sponsors/amazon.gif”
    In a similar way to the online version it too doesn’t display the images, so I am wondering if the ABSPATH function should be replaced with another, but I can’t see why it doesn’t work with ABSPATH… curious.
