Why won't my pictures show up?

There are several reasons your images may not be showing up on your web page.

1. You haven't refreshed the web page.
If you add an image to your web page, then try to view the page, it's possible that your browser is storing the old page that doesn't have the new image. Simply press F5 on your keyboard, or Refresh on your browser, and any changes you have made to the page will show up.

2. You're linking to an incorrectly capitalized filename.
mypic.jpg is not the same file as mypic.JPG

3. You have forgotten to ftp the image to your domain's directory.
Hey, it happens to all of us sometimes.

4. You have ftp-ed the image into the wrong directory:
This is easy to do, especially if you have subdirectories or multiple domains.

5. There's an error in your html code:
Check your page's code. The link to the image should be something like this:

< img src = "image.gif (or .jpeg or whatever)"> if the image is in the same directory (folder) as the page where it will appear.

If you have left off a quote mark, <, >, =, misspelled img src, or made any other kind of typo, the image won't show up.

These are the main reasons images don't show up on your pages. If you have tried all of these things, and think there might be a problem with your account, please contact support!
