    Help the stupid and helpless......

    So part two of my re-introduction into html and css.

    I have this code :

    <td><img src="images/home/spacer.gif" width="1" height="88" border="0" name="undefined_2"></td>
    </tr>


    <td colspan="3" valign="top"><!-- #BeginEditable "a" -->
    <div align="center"><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b><font color="#125893"><h2>SYSTEM PHOTOS</h2><br>
    </b></font> </div>

    <div align="left"><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b><font color="#125893"><h4>Before Installation</h4><br>
    </b></font> </div>

    <p><a href="images/HollettPre.jpg"><img src="images/HollettPreMini.jpg" alt="Preinstall 1"/></a>
    <a href="images/HollettPre2.jpg"><img src="images/HollettPre2Mini.jpg" alt="Preinstall 2"/></a>
    <a href="images/HollettPre3.jpg"><img src="images/HollettPre3Mini.jpg" alt="Preinstall 3"/></a>
    </p>


    <div align="left"><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><b><font color="#125893"><h4>After Installation</h4><br>
    </b></font> </div>

    <p><a href="images/HollettPost1.jpg"><img src="images/HollettPost1Mini.jpg" alt="Postinstall 1"/></a>
    <a href="images/HollettPost3.jpg"><img src="images/HollettPost3Mini.jpg" alt="Postinstall 2"/></a>
    <a href="images/HollettPost4.jpg"><img src="images/HollettPost4Mini.jpg" alt="Postinstall 3"/></a>
    <a href="images/HollettPost5.jpg"><img src="images/HollettPost5Mini.jpg" alt="Postinstall 3"/></a>
    <a href="images/HollettPost6.jpg"><img src="images/HollettPost6Mini.jpg" alt="Postinstall 3"/></a>
    </p>

    What I'm trying to do is load the thumbnails and their full size pics onto the page. It works fine and dandy when opening from my hard drive into IE/Mozilla but when I load it to the ftp site, and look up the url I get the red "X" and the alternative text for the pic.

    WTF am I not doing or doing wrong!?!!??!??!?
    Now, Hank, touch your throat. That tube you feel is your trachea. Think of it as your handle. That thing your thumb is on is your carotid artery. Think of it as your button. I want you to grab the handle, push the button.

    Syntax issue? ...LoL , sorry had to ask.

    Ok, so you're wanting to show thumbnails that when clicked open the full size image, yes ?

    1. Make sure the files are uploaded to "images/....." as relative to the current directory. If not, you'll have to add a leading slash "/images/...." to get the path from the web root.

    2. Note that on linux servers capitalization makes a difference. If your ftp software/server changes the file names to lower case, for example, you won't be able to see them. In other words, "HollettPost6Mini.jpg" is different than "Hollettpost6mini.jpg". If capitalization is wrong, you'll be able to see them on your Windows machine, but not when uploaded.
    Linux is user friendly, it's just picky about its friends...

    What he said. ^^ All I can see is a potential directory issue.

    1)My test folder has the EXACT same layout and file names as the ftp site and I copy them to the proper folder.

    2) We are using Godaddy hosting service and they use a linux server. I changed all the capitals to lowercase on BOTH the image and the code on the page and still "no joy."
    All the other images are in the same directory and they load fine.

    Now there is a new folder in the ftp directory labeled .hcc.thumbs is that where I need to put the thumbnail images?

    I at a loss of what to do next.

    So it seems that Linux didn't like my jpg and had to change it to uppercase.

    Thanks for the support Phillip and Izzo.

    Something weird with their server... You shouldn't have to do that, as long the capitalization is the same in your code and the file name on the server.

    That's what I thought. I'm sure my site will be FUBAR when I get into work this morning.
