[SOLVED] Images not showing in browser
#1
I have a complete new fresh install. All theme images work fine, but images added to pages, do not show.
How could GS be keeping the images from showing?


1) Using the edit page and adding a image, the image shows in the edit page preview but does not show in the web browser.
2) The browser source text shows a good <img> tag.
3) If I copy the source text image link to a browser the image shows.
4) It's not a browser issue, all browsers exhibit the same problem.
5) it's not an .htaccess issue, I am using the same file on working GS sites
6) placing the images at various places in the page did not make a difference.
7) Using different image extensions (.png, .jpg, .gif) did not make a difference.
8) clearing GS and browser caches does not make a difference.
9) deleting and re-creating a page did not change the problem.
10) directories have good 755 permissions.
11) neither, relative links "/data/uploads"... or full on site "http://"... will show up
12) off site "http://"... will  show up.

Thanks for the suggestions...
* Something I forgot to mention - pictures show on index; but no other pages
* this is a new Internet provider I have never used before...
* I turned off apache "localhost" on my computer and checked ms win host file
* settings base dir is correct
* I don't think it was setup on local host before uploading (I usually do not do that), I have been working on several sites and do not remember
Thanks,

Make sure the "website Base URL" is correct on the settings page.

Have you moved the site from local to server?

Check your js console in browser for cross domain violations etc, usually a mismatch in siteurl and actual url causes this, and usually things like css or js on front fail to load sometimes. Could also be a http https problem, but console should say

In my browser, there is a quick blank space of appropriate size for the image but then the browser collapses the image area. As I mentioned before, the page html source shows a proper <img tag and valid link.

It looks **like** the old relative URL issue from tears ago which was fixed.

(Edited out: Ah its the old relative URL issue. )

You image URLs are "data/image/xxx.jpg"
instead of "/data/image/xxx.jpg"

There are Plugins that fix this after the site has been upgraded and will go through all your pages and fix.

Yes - that fixed it!
And it is a brand new install with the latest GS - the site is completely new and blank. All I did was start creating blank pages (about 150), no text in the pages. I came back to flesh the pages out, the CK editor choose the image urls....

n00dles care to elaborate what causes this? Site url containing a slash or not maybe ?
I do not remember this issue or know why there would even be relative urls..

I just checked and it's fresh load of ver 3.3.13

As I mentioned before, this is CK Edit's urls being inserted via the image "browse site dialog box"

Yeah those are supposed to be absolute urls.

UPDATE: Now that I have been working with it a couple hours, I can provide a little more information. When the link is inserted by CK Edit it is a absolute FULL URL. For some reason DURRING the page save, the "http.../" is removed from the "data/..." prefix.

Well, at least we figured out what was wrong before someone new to GS walked away frustrated with out saying something and the problem perpetuated undetected for a while.

Thanks, everyone for the help - now I can get back to business Smile

I cannot reproduce this at all, any plugins ? You said fresh so i assume no

Could your path have something odd about it that would cause it to get stripped, like extended characters or invalid characters ?

You are using insert image dialog, and selecting the image in the filebrowser ?

Id say this has to be a plugin causing this

I do use plugins such as your GS admin, and I18N search and navigation, pagify, and a couple others. I will deactivate them one at a time over time when I work on the site and I will report back to you.

I believe I may have found the problem. It will take a day or two to be sure.

I had installed but never used the "Absolute Link Fixer" Version 1.00 — Author: Michał Gańko.

Unbeknownst to me, activating it caused it to start deleting my URL even though I had not "configured" it. I had assumed it was a manually operated search and replace - but it replaces after every save. It chopped the URL including the leading "/". I went back and configured it to replace the url with "/" and so far everything seems to be working. I'll send another message if this turns out not to be the problem.
