That means that the path to your image, as you have it in your c ode, is wrong. There is no image in that location.

What you're saying doesn't seem to have any relationship to the link you posted.

i cant see the cross or code but it is pointing to 2 folders above your page ../../ is that correct or is that 2 folders above the template folder ?

People have been trying to help you so I don't think opening a new thread is going to prove particularly helpful.

Basically we've offered some ideas but, at least for me. until you can post a page that demonstrates the problem in a way that we can see AND explain what's happening clearly I don't think there's much more I can offer.

I've just looked at your page again and the only image missing is 'Conflex CSW160 Advantage.jpg'. I click on it and it isn't there. End of. Either your path is wrong or the image isn't uploaded. We can't say any more than that! You could try taking all of the spaces out of your file names. That isn't really good practice anyway. You'll see you get a %20 between the words. If you must break words then use _ or -. Other than that we can't help much more :confused:
