In my last blog entry, I posed a puzzle that would have challenged Solomon himself. I had three webpages built in Dreamweaver CS5
all with the same .css attached (see last post for definition of CSS). I had added images to each of the web pages – different images – all found in the same directory in my website. When I launched the browser – IE9 in this case – to test the website, the first two pages displayed as expected and my hyperlinks worked as expected. When I navigated to the third page, the images were missing although the styling from the CSS was there.
I began investigating as I described in the last blog entry. After being stumped for a bit and figured that my PC was playing a Halloween prank on me.
When I began developing the site, I had created the home page then the css then added the new folder to hold the images. I proceeded to add a couple more pages. One of the new pages accidentally wound up in the images folder and I wanted it in the root folder for the site. So, I moused over it, clicked, and moved it. Instead of moving the page, I had created a second one by making a copy in the root folder. The hyperlink was pointing to the page with no image on it and the other page with the image was open in Dreamweaver. Once I found the problem, I deleted theoffensive page, added the image where it should be, corrected the hyperlink and everything now worked out fine.
The Devil is in the details — or the ghost is! Happy Halloween!!
