    Currently after I upload an image (file name: check_mark.jpg), the image URL I am receiving is given below,

    <img src='/files/check_mark.gif' alt='checkmark' />

    But when I use above code in a post, it renders a broken image link.

    I have tried replacing the 'files' in above url with 'images' but that doesn't work.

    I have also tried adding the blog url before the /files or /images, but doesn't work

    per Donncha's suggestion in another post I also added/replacted the .htaccess in wp-content folder by the following:

    <Files blogs>
    ForceType application/x-httpd-php
    </Files>

    but to no avail.

    What could possibly be wrong?

    Hi Alex,

    What version are you using... I had a similar problem with earlier versions that has since been fixed...

    I am using 8-12-05 nightly build. Then had the same problem on 8-13-05 build and now with 8-18-05 build.

    I have about 6 test copies of software running on various domains. The problem persisted.

    Well, after working all night, this early AM I did devise a way to tackle the issue. I modified upload.php file to generate an absolute URL and the pictures now show up. I had to be quite innovative in generating that URL since it's dynamic in nature, but the job was accomplished.

    Thanks Farms, for looking into it.
