Inserting Pictures - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

To post pictures onto our website I copy them from their folder on my computer and paste them on the correct page. I have never had a problem with this until last week.

    Default Inserting Pictures

    To post pictures onto our website I copy them from their folder on my computer
    and paste them on the correct page. I have never had a problem with this until
    last week. For one particular property the pictures will not show up. If I look
    at the posted (not working) picture's properties it comes up as the folder (my
    doents/current listings/residential/455 culver #7) instead of a website like
    the others. It is only for this property because I posted other pictures on the
    site and they still work just fine. If someone could let me know how to fix it,
    it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Go here to see what I mean... [url]http://millpondrealty.com/forsale2.htm[/url] The home
    in question is a little less than 1/2 way down the page.

    You can fix this by diving into the source code and adjust the img tags:
    <img
    src="file:///C|/Doents%20and%20Settings/User1/My%20Doents/Current%20Listin
    gs/Residential%20Listings/Culver%20455%20#7/Web%20445%20Culver/160IMG_7701.jpg"
    width="160" height="120" border="0">, with the right path to the file on the
    server (if it's uploaded at all).

    But first I would try to delete the images and try to insert them again and
    see if the problem persists or that it was a onetime bummer...

    I have tried to delete everything and start over but it still came up with the
    same problem. They aren't uploaded anywhere (to my knowledge) so I can't just
    go in and change the link. I wonder if there is something wrong with the
    pictures that only these aren't working. I tried to save them in a different
    file and reupload but that didn't work either. I'd hate to have to go out and
    take all new pix.

    Try next steps:
    1. open Contribute, in the main menu go to >File>Publish file from my computer
    2. browse to the image(s) and publish them to the right folder (images in your
    case)
    3. now they are uploaded you can insert the images in your page from the
    webserver

    I feel like I'm being really stupid and missing something but "Publish file from my computer" isn't an option. I think we have an old version of Contribute. We've had it for years and haven't updated.

    Which version are you using?

    Have you tried inserting other images on this or other pages? And what was the result?

    Have you recently installed and uninstalled a trial of Contribute CS3?

    We are using version 2.0.

    Images on all other pages and THIS page work. It is just these pictures that do not seem to work.

    I have not done anything with Contribute CS3.

    Maybe you are dealing with corrupt jpeg files? But most of the time Contribute seems to upload these files and only giving problems in displaying the images.

    Your problem is that you have a pound symbol (#) in either the picture name or
    the folder name.

    You should rename your pictures and folders to use "web safe" names - no
    spaces, no punctuation (other than period, underscore, or dash), and the
    filename must have an extension (like ".jpg" or ".gif" or ".htm" depending on
    what type of file it is). Then insert them again.

    In this case, the # symbol has a special meaning in web links, so the web
    browser can't find the picture because it can't follow the link. "#" should
    only be used when you want to link to a specific spot on a page (an "anchor"),
    and that only works for HTML pages, not pictures.
