Publishes everything but graphics

Post by gmiller51 » Tue Feb 11, 2014 12:18 am

Publishing locally on my HD the index.htm page shows all elements. Text I created within QEW and external graphic jpegs.

When I attempt to publish externally either within the app or using a FTP program the results are the same... text but no graphics.

I'm curious about .qwb. On the local machine its a "project file". Is it sent to the remote site as well. I assume not, so what is sent?

Thanks,

Greg

Hi Greg,
I hope, you are nor really talking about "jpeg"....try with "jpg".

Did you publish all files?
Do your images have valid (web safe) filenames?

I'm having the same problem as the OP. Everything shows up except graphics. I checked the file extensions, which are valid. I checked the upload, and all files were uploaded. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Maybe I'm too stupid to live, but where is the publish log? I checked the User Guide and nothing came up under "publish log". Do you mean the list that appears upon publishing?

Thanks.

This is from the FAQ:
Enable the publish log in Preferences->Publish and make note of the error message.
The log will be created the next time you publish! The publish log will be generated in your documents folder:
/Documents/Quick 'n Easy Web Builder/publish.log

I did it twice and nothing shows up in my Documents folder nor anywhere on my computer when I searched (several times). I can C&P the list of published files from the publish window if that helps.

It may not be a problem with the actual publish function, but I'm not at all sure. All the graphics show up in the publish list and even show up as having been uploaded at my hosting site. But in every browser, only the text shows. And on my Mac in Safari, they're the blue boxes with question marks.

Thanks.

Maybe the file names are invalid (not web safe)?
or maybe the image format is not right?
or maybe the images folder is protected on the server?
What is the URL of the page so I can see what you have done?

http://www.insightful-journeys.com

All the images are either .jpg or .png. (The tech support person at hosting company wasn't particularly helpful. I'm moving my site to a new host soon.)

Thanks.

The images are not in the right folder.

For example:
http://www.insightful-journeys.com/img0001.png
should be in
http://www.insightful-journeys.com/images/img0001.png

Did you publish the website with the built-in FTP tool?
If you uploaded the files manually then make sure all files are in the right folder.
If you used the built-in FTP tool then then is something wrong with the images folder on the server.

I figured it out. Thank you for helping me find the problem! Somehow there were two folders where the site was saved, but each folder only had parts of the site. The images files must've been in the one I wasn't aware of, and therefore not the one I was uploading. (The "hidden" one was inside another unrelated folder and I must've inadvertently moved it early on and then forgot that I had already set up a folder for the site.)

I knew it was something I had done (or neglected to do). It's almost always operator error. :oops:

Many thanks for your help.
