    missing images

    Hi, I am having some problems with a top level domain.

    This only happens in IE so I am wondering if someone knows enough to tell me this is an IE bug and not some coding problem.

    What happens is this, I'll use a hypothetical url.

    If I type in the url www.hellopeople.ca
    In IE the page loads, but all images do not. Infact, If I then view properties no info is given on any image but for the dimensions specifiec by the HTML <img> element.

    Now, here's the kicker. If I then change the url to:

    www.hellopeople.ca/

    and include at the end a forward slash, the page loads fine, images and all. I am using IE6, the page itself has a php extension.

    So, has anyone come across this before?
    All that comes to mind is that this has to do with some setting my webhost has set. Other than that the url for the images are correct, and uploaded.

    Thanks for any help given, this is driving me crazy. I know I've heard about this before, I just can't recall what the solution was if one was found.. it was a diff forum

    Here lies the answer to your question:
    the page itself has a php extension
    By default, most hosts will display index.html first and
    if not found then index.htm. Some hosts provide a list
    of extensions they will display including index.shtml

    Perhaps your host does not support index.php or;
    You named the page something other than index.php

    Willy, that won't be the problem with the images not showing...

    Can you show a real link to the problem? I can't recreate it for myself.

    thanks for the help.

    Turns out the problem was due to enabling hotlink protection in cpanel.

    Don't understand why, but as of now it's disabled and the url redirection plus images are working fine. Although this means now bandwidth theft is possible...darn.

    I'll have to look into this a bit more.

    Can only think of it not adding the backslash in the htaccess file

    Just keep an eye on your web stats and if images are being pulled frequently from external sites then you should worry about getting the hot link protection working again. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it.

    Yeah..maybe. I'll have to look into that. Thanks.

    Oracle Guy, yeah, thanks for the advice. I'll keep an eye out, and if it does become a problem, then It'll have to be taken care of.

    Thank you both for the help.
