hmmm ok ... well ... i would say the first thing to do is put the ../ back in again. sorry to mess you about on that and create work for you. i was doubtful if that would be the answer but it was worth a try. i have spent what seems like complete eternities trying to figure out why some of my pics wont display only to find out that the file location was the problem (or should i say the link was pointing to the wrong location even though it looked correct).
The only real obvious thing that i didnt put in my last post was that the webpage (below) works fine....
but the picture (below) doesnt....
so, the logical conclusion is that the pictures havent been publish but the web page has. I realise this is something you have already checked but I just wanted to double check that you had done that. it might be worth republishing them just to make sure they are working propery.
there is something you could check as I have often noticed a glitch. I am not sure if it is a frontpage glitch or just a general one that affects websites in general. look at the code above for the picture (the lower one). it ends with .JPG in uppercase letters. if your pictures actually have .jpg in lowercase letters I have often noticed that the file cannot be seen. it is probbaly worth making sure that the entire file name is in the correct case.
one other thing that could be affecting things is the spaces in the folder name (julyaugust pics). in the code above %20 indicates a space I didnt mention this earlier because on some of the other pages the pics are working fine even with the spaces. generally spaces in folder and file names are not good practice. i know its a big job to rename all the folders and republish them. i wouldnt worry about it for now.
going to have another look at things tonight for you and see if anything springs to mind mari.
