View Full Version : Image Not Uploading To Server?

05-10-2011, 05:35 PM

I'm new the forum, and for a hobby I enjoy creating websites about my hobbies. I have just started and am currently using the latest version of Dreamweaver (Cheating I know!). I'm settling in well, as it were, apart from currently having one major problem. I upload images to my website in Dreamweaver, and I can view them in 'Preview In Browser', but when I go to upload this to my website server it doesn't upload? I'm currently using a sub domain, on 000webhost, and in the near future I will purchase a proper domain.

Please can anyone resolve my issue? (If I haven't explained my problem properly then please tell me, and i'll have another go! ;) )

Dreamweaver (Cheating I know!).

naaa not if your coding in code view. Design view is for cheaters...lol

Sounds like maybe a file structure issue. Have you talked with customer support at your hosting company?

Post your code showing how you link to your images.

Hello Teedorf!

In that case I sometimes cheat!! ;) Unfortunately, I am a complete newbie when it comes to coding, but i'm gradually grasping the basics. My code for the image is this:

<p><img src="Images/Default.png" width="138" height="126" alt="An Image" /></p>

Does this clarify? I have contacted my hosting company, but unfortunately, I don't think they'll reply.

Then if this is a paid hosting company, I would fire them. If its free, I would still expect some support, even if its very limited.

First thing I would do is make sure that same img src file path works locally. Then make sure your remote server folders are set up the same same...ie do you have a folder named "Images". Check the capitalization as well.

Do you use DW to upload and sync your local and remote files? There is a little button above your files panel that is blue and square. It says click to expand and show local and remote files. Do that and compare your file structures on both servers.

and btw, just dont get into the habit of using design view in DW...lol The more you hand code, the better off you'll be. Eventually you will do everything in code view.:thumbsup:

you have to make sure everything is setup correctly in site management. , double check your remote info section in the site properties, most providers have ftp access to upload data

I'm a split view man myself( gotta see that code!). I use DW for what it is, one tool in the toolbox , not he whole toolbox :)

Is the rest of your site uploading ok? If your images are in an images folder, then you will need to create that folder first, either through the webspace explorer on 000webhost or through FTP, dreamweaver isn't able to create folders.

dreamweaver isn't able to create folders

You can create folders and files from within dreamweaver. You can also create them in the ftp feature within dreamweaver. If your file or folder exists locally and you upload the file/folder to your remote server, then it will be created there as well.
