View Full Version : Thumbnail image not displaying

12-14-2009, 11:50 PM
It seems that this tutorial I've been following on "Image Hovering" is heavier than I intitally thought. Thanks to kristingish, I was able to align the floating image properly. The problem now is: How to get the thumbnail images to display on the left side.

Following this tutorial (which is very concise): http://www.cssplay.co.uk/articles/gallery/index.html
I've been able to replicate most of the functionality but unable to get a default thumbnail to display :S
After comparing the code from the tutorial with my code, I realize the gallery code is mostly identical and now I face the challenge of picking the needle from the haystack.

It turns out my initial code became dis-organized as I progressed, and I think theres a line or two hiding in there which masks or overrides the thumbnail specification. Funny though, the hover function still changes the color and border properties of the thumbnails :\

Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

The paths in the url() os your CSS is not correct.When using relative paths, it should be based on the relative paths of your CSS file and images. Try

#text a.slidea {/*style.css (line 148)*/
background:transparent url(../tmp/stone.jpg) repeat scroll 0 50%;
