Yes -- you have to put the image files on line before you can link to them
Your first image link is to "WC_TOC_files/image003.jpg". There is no
image003.jpg in this subdirectory, and the subdirectory is NOT named
*WC_TOC_files* -- it is named *wc_toc_files* (all small case letters). So,
either rename the directory, or change the link; then upload image003.jpg to
Your second image link is to "IMG\Flags-1.jpg" There are a couple of things
wrong here. First, you do not have a directory named IMG. Second, if you
create a subdirectory named IMG, you use a forward slash, not a backward one
to separate the directory from the file name. Third -- you have not
uploaded the file named *Flags-1.jpg*, so as far as the browser is
concerned, it doesn't exist. If you upload it to your genealogy directory,
the link will be:
<.img src="Flags-1.jpg"> (without the leading dot)
While I'm picking on you <G>, there are a couple of other things you should
1. Your home page is named *index.html.htm* Rename it *index.html* That
way, it will be delivered when someone calls your URL,
2. You have placed your RW counter code in the HEAD section of your HTML.
It should be somewhere between the opening body tag <.BODY>, and the closing
Just remember, you can display either GIF or JPG files on web pages -- both
will work. If the image is *broken*, it's because you haven't told the
browser the correct location to find the file.
