Why won't some of my images show up in Internet Explorer? (23 posts)

    Okay, I'm a bit rubbish at coding and technical stuff, so sorry if I don't explain very well etc

    I finally got my blog fixed up a few weeks ago, and it looks fine on my Macbook and iMac, which is what I made it on.

    However, on Internet Explorer, the header doesn't show up. All the other images are fine as they are on the blog via Photobucket.

    Have I done something wrong? I'm not too great at FileZilla!

    Any help would be great!

    Check the uploads path folder in Admin/Settings/Miscellaneous. It's normally set to wp-content/uploads. Otherwise, a link to your site might help people troubleshoot the problem.

    Yep, it's set to wp-content/uploads, is that okay?

    Yep - that's fine. You've got a couple of theme CSS errors that need sorting. Also a dodgy RSS/XML link in the header:

    <link rel='alternate' type='application/rss+xml' title='Katie Mulligan's Freak Laboratory Product List RSS' href='http://freaklaboratory.com/index.php?rss=true&action=product_list'/>

    Try using double quotes around the title attribute. Other than that, I'm currently rather stumped as to why IE is refusing to display the image. That path is valid. The image looks fine. Could it be a permissions issue?

    In your style sheet, about line 330, #header_img declares position: relative; and float: none. It should be one or the other. I think I would delete the float: left first and see what that does. Also, if you keep position: relative; you should add top: 0; and left: 0;, these are supposed to be default, but I have noticed in the past that some versions of IE had a problem if horizontal and vertical positions were not explicitly declared.

    I tried calling the header image directly but IE8 refused to display it, so I don't think it's a CSS issue. Since it looks like a perfectly normal, RGB, .jpg to me, that only leaves something in the image path...

    @mimimutineer: can you try dropping that image file into your root folder and calling it up directly via IE? That might help to confirm whether there is path/permission problem or whether it's something inherent in the image file itself.

    I admit I'm reaching here, but the image shows up in Firefox also, and not IE7. So I start thinking IE quirk and just naturally look at the CSS

    You are right though, I can't access the image directly with IE. Weird

    Thanks for your replies!

    I made the image in CS3 with entirely original images, if that's what you mean with permissions?

    Also, I'm so stupid, but where shall I try the double quotes (like this " ?) Around just the word 'title' or from there to 'rss'? Sorry I'm so dumb with this stuff >.<

    I changed the things you mentioned mechx1, so thanks for that, hope that might work!

    Thanks a lot guys!

    It should be title=".....".

    Okay, is that in the stylesheet? I can't seem to find it?

    Oh god, I'm so useless at this!

    Sorry - it should be in header.php. It might look lie:

    <link rel='alternate' type='application/rss+xml' title='<?php bloginfo('name);?> Product List RSS' href='<?php bloginfo('url);?>index.php?rss=true&action=product_list'/>

    Yep it looks like this in header.php.

    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="<?php bloginfo('name'); ?> RSS Feed" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" />

    Change anything?

    That's not it. Perhaps it's being added by WP-Ecommerce.

    I did have a page called products a whole ago, but I deleted it. That had an e-commerce plugin I think, could that be a problem?

    I think it's something you need to look into as you're potentially pointing visitors to an feed that no longer exists. But I don't think it's causing your image problem.

    Right, okay, I'll check it out, thanks ^_^

    I don't have my PC switched on atm, so I'll maybe check tomorrow if the image has come up on IE! Crosses fingers

    Another thought. The image maybe corrupt or in a format that IE doesn't support (such as JPEG2000 or interlaced/progressive jpeg formats). Try re-saving it as a png file or as a jpg file with standard encoding.

    Interesting, mimimutineer, do you know what format did NOT work, for our interest?
