Support » Fixing WordPress » Images that appeared on site yesterday now have a broken image icon.

  • Hi,

    My images were appearing yesterday on, however, now they just have a broken image icon. I tried removing an reloading, as well as uploading new pictures, but that did not work.

    I am beneath a novice in understanding this type of stuff, and have looked at previous discussions on this issue but cannot follow what they are saying people should do.

    Can anyone help?

    Hi Student2424,

    I seem to have the same issue with images in our site… Did you manage to fix the issue?

    Like you, I am also a complete novice with understanding the technical side of WordPress, so a lot of the previous posts etc are hard to follow.

    My images were previously showing, but now they just appear as a broken image symbol. I have tried using different themes, uploading different images and deleting plugins that i installed after this issue occurred.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Here is a link to the site ( Image- top left hand corner)-

    I seem to have solved the issue ( in my case, not sure if it would work for others, but worth a try!)

    After deactivating all the recent plugins and still nothing… I thought back to what else I had amended recently…. permalinks!!

    On these are automatically selected as default- making your links look messy and unprofessional- so I had changed the selection of how i wanted the links to look…

    As soon as I rest this to the previous default setting all my images returned! 😀

    However, this now created the problem of my permalinks now looking messy again! hmmmm :/
