Extreme newbie: removing/replacing images on a template

Post by Todw » Fri Oct 12, 2018 4:44 am

I just purchased v6 for the mac. I selected a template (snow world) to use to get started. The first thing I tried was to remove and replace the large background image with one of my own, which worked fine. I selected the page and then 'background > image' and chose the image I wanted. The trouble is, when I previewed the page, the background image wasn't displayed. Any ideas why not?

Thank you.

Maybe the file name is not web safe or the format is not supported by the browser?

Hi Pablo,

Thanks for your quick reply. Unfortunately that didn't help. I renamed that page "index" as that is what it should be. The preview displays the text at the top but the image is missing. I'd send an image but clicking the image icon above displays Image and dropping my image between them doesn't show up when I preview the post.

I know this ought to be easy but it has me stumped at the moment.

Thanks,

-Tod

I was referring to the file name of the image.
What is the URL of the page so I can see what you have done?

Hi Pablo,

The filename is: 2017_0625_Front yard_Tod_001.jpg
The path shown in the inspector is: /Users/tod/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs/QnEWB Sites/Tod Test 1/2017_0625_Front yard_Tod_001.jpg

The URL is: http://1244barnes.us/tod/

The log when I published to a folder is:
*** START OF PUBLISH ***
Scanning publish folder...
Found 10 file(s).

*** END OF PUBLISH ***


I'm going to start from scratch without using a template. Maybe that will take care of things. If you spot something that I should know about, please let me know.

There's no hurry to debug this.

I'm sorry, but the filename is not valid/web safe.
Filenames should not start with a number.
Also, there is a space in the filename.

Hi Todw:

You can find the problem easily:
If you browse to your site and open the "developer" mode of your browser (in my case FIrefox) it shows you exactly where the error is!
Regards
Michael

@ Pablo: Thank you. I hadn't realized that the filename needed to conform to those rules. I just selected a file from my photo library without regard to any rules. Live and learn!

@ mexman: And thank you for pointing out how easy it is to reveal such errors in FF. Another useful tip for my "tips" file. Your help is appreciated.
