    Check that anti-hotlinking isn’t enabled in your hosting account. If it is, try disabling it.

    How is this done using Go Daddy?

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    Your .htaccess file has nothing to do with this. Try asking Godaddy to check whether anti-hotlinking is enabled in your hosting account.

    anti-hotlinking is not enabled

    \what are you using to generate those images? The image src looks totally borked.

    I’ve just been uploading the images through wordpress. All of the coding was done when the website was created, before my time. I’m trying to solve this issue without going through a developer. Is there any information I could give you (from wordpress files or db) to better understand what is going on?

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    Once that is done, see if you can upload and insert images successfully.

    Ok. When I deactivate all plugins, the website is gone with error message:

    Fatal error: Class ‘Pod’ not found in /home/content/05/8500605/html/wp-content/themes/framingconcepts/page.php on line 15

    When I reactivate just the pod plugin, the website returns to its prior state with the same images not loading.


    I switched to the default theme and there are still no images on those same pages. Even the broken icons are gone at that point.

    I’ve left it on default theme.

    Let me know next thing to try, thanks

    Is there something more I can try to fix this?

    Ok so I believe the problem is with “slir” which is meant to crop images to set pixel sizes…and it is not working properly….

    <img src=”/wp-content/themes/framingconcepts/slir/w200-h200-c1:1/”

    anyone? anyone?

    Your subject line caught my attention. I’ve been dealing with a similar issue. This morning I found this old thread (resolved), which solved my problem. What I did was used my FTP program to go into a file called “uploads” (htdocs/wp-content/uploads) and saw the suspect “htaccess” file. I renamed it as suggested, and when I checked my website, all was well! I know someone earlier in this thread said it has nothing to do with htaccess, but it did for me! Good luck!!

    [resolved] Missing Images, Broken Images, Direct Links to Files Broken (4 posts)

    This isn’t really much of a question, as much as a contribution to the community.

    I spent quite sometime troubleshooting broken images and files on one of my clients websites. The files were on the server. The paths were 100% correct. The permissions were on par with what the platform requires and what any particular plug-in requires.

    Yet, you still cannot get the images to appear or even open them up with a direct link to them in the browser.

    I found that 9 times out of 10, you probably have a rogue .htaccess file in that directory causing the block. Even if you open the htaccess file and it has no erroneous information in it that would cause the issue, my suggestion would be to rename it to htaccess.txt and retest.

    Hope this helps the next guy/gal!
