image / picture uploading question

Just watching through Mark's video lesson2 and can get a picture onto my site whilst using dreamweaver and F12, no problem. However, when I go into my site online, all that shows is a white box with a red X in the corner. Clicking on the "show picture" option does nothing.
Any advice please?

Have you uploaded the picture to your server?

Hi Sean. First, I should say that I have the picture jpeg saved into the same file as my site's IE icon; so when I click the IE index icon, site comes up - showing photo.

I edited picture into dreamweaver (as video instructions); saved as - to my site's file; clicked F12; went into cpanel file manager; opened public_html file; clicked "upload"; clicked browse; clicked "index" ; clicked overwite box; clicked upload; got confirmation message; exit. Then get the red X when opening site online.
Whole process working fine - except for photo.

I also tried opening both the index and picture in separate "browse" boxes, then uploading

Either your image is not on your server or the path that points to the picture from your webpage is wrong.

Thanks both, done it.
One other thing, please could you point me to exactly where Mark explains how to round-off the corners of websites, as mentioned (but not explained) in Vid lesson 2. thanks

Are you talking about how to use instant corners? Just download the program and start to use it. If you can't figure it out then come and ask us.

There was no mention of instant corners in lesson 2 & I've never heard if this software. I'll Google the software and see what I get

It's a free download in the members area when you log in... no need to Google it.

I've just got back home so I can't be bothered looking, but have a look at Marks blog and look for the post on free software tools.

easy download; not much too see really.
Unfortunately whetever it did when i tried clicking the "small" corner option and pressed OK, it just completely overwrote my site in dreamweaver and gave me a rectangle with rounded corners. I cannot now (or don't know how to) recover it...
I can still see my site online.

As long as you didn't save over the file, you should be able to just close it and reopen it.

Or you could just download the source code for your online page.

Yup, just figured out to copy/paste the source code. Are there any instructions for this software anywhere; I'm kind of seeing what's going on - it's like separate upload, alongside index.html IE page, within same file... But how i apply it when I'm editing in DWeaver, I don't yet know.

Hey icj1,

To get the round-cornered box into your site, you need to view the page source of the round-corners HTML page, copy the part that creates the round box (the <table> tags and everything inside) and then paste that into Dreamweaver using the code view (as opposed to the preview view)

Actually, I've just taken a look at the HTML the software produces, and it seems to be producing boxes with gaps in them when I view the pages in Firefox. (IE looks fine... go figure.)

I've tweaked the code so it renders fine in Firefox. Try pasting this into your table code instead:



The stuff inside the <!-- --> things are comments, and they tell you what to do. As with the HTML produced by the round-corners software, this code assumes that the images are kept in the same folder as the HTML itself. If you've put your images inside a special images folder, you'll need to change the file path inside the <img> tags. (ie. <img src="../images/corner3.jpg" width="25" height="25"> )

If you're using the "large" round corners option, every time it says "25" up there, change it to "41".

All that looks pretty intimidating, but give it a go and let us know how you get on.

All the best,
Mark
