Custom Start Page/Missing Graphics/Recently Updated Blog script (10 posts)

    I have a couple questions.

    I'm designing my own 'start' page of sorts, I uploaded it to my server, but my images aren't showing up. I've tried the images/xyz.jpg method and the http://url.com/images/xyz.jpg and neither work.

    Strange!

    Also, someone referred me to wp-functions.php in order to find a script to show the recently updated blogs. I'm a little lost, does anyone know the tag?

    Thanks

    Did you upload the images in binary?
    Did you check the permissions on them?

    Yes and yes. It's kind of weird.

    I wonder if it's got something to do with the rewrite?

    This might be due to rewrite thus your images cannot be showed. If you upload your images into your theme folder's images folder, I am sure it will work.

    Can anyone help with this? Must there be a bypass or something or is it the subdirectory rewrite hack needed?

    I tried moving all of the images over to the theme directory and it was of no help. :(

    Have you got a URL where we can go look?

    It's under password protection now, let me remove it and I'll let you know when it's ok.

    Thanks!

    In the source of your page, you've hardcoded (near as I can tell) just the relative URL of the images, so they show up as <img src="images/editors.jpg" />
    And in fact this one:<img src="fb_hue_text_nufont_court.jpg" />
    is looking in the root folder.

    So yeah, that'd be why they can't find the pics. Your main index is looking in the wrong spot.

    Also, I have a question or two: :D Dude, why tables? Why not a seprate stylesheet?
