Trouble Finding Image name to add to Edit Index.html
Hi, Someone did me a favor and changed my website landing page. Unfortunately, I need to make changes, which include changing an image, but he's unavailable to help.
I uploaded the image I want to use and the name it gave it was: KarenHS4.jpg
Not knowing what I'm doing, I replaced the image code/text:
<!-- head shot --><p alignleft><center><img src="/images/karen-c-150x150.jpg"></center></p>
<!-- head shot --><p alignleft><center><img src="/images/KarenHS4.jpg"></center></p>
But, now the image doesn't appear.
So, my question is: How do I get the correct image name to input into that code to make the headshot appear?
I did make the text content changes, but the headshot image has me stumped.
I'd sure appreciate help.
Oh, the site is http: // thewritingworld .com

You need to ensure that the image file is in the correct folder and also that its name is spelled and capitalized EXACTLY as it appears in the HTML file. Linux hosting is case-sensitive for folder and file names.
Even with the jpg file is stored in the "images" folder, Linux will not find it if, for example, it's named "Karenhs4.jpg", "karenHS4.jpg", or "KarenHS4.JPG. The capitalization of the file's name must match the name as it's referenced in the HTML file.
Thank you, Bob!
I copied and pasted the file name, after I uploaded it, so that should be accurate. I'm not sure if it's in the correct folder.
I've wasted so much time on this. Maybe a simpler solution would be to go back to the way it was, if possible. I was using a simple Wordpress theme.
I think the person who created the new landing page created an index.html file in File Manager. I don't see that file in any of my other sites' File Manager.
Can I just delete the index.html file in File Manager?
As it's going it looks like I'm going to have to hire someone to undo this favor. What a waste of time and money.
I'd appreciate your advice,
I'd just love to go back to the way it was, where I could go into my site/wp-admin and update as needed.
I just took a look at directory http: // thewritingworld .com / images/ and file KarenHS4.jpg is not in that directory. The only files in that directory are karen-c-150x150.jpg and writing-world.jpg so you must have placed KarenHS4.jpg in the wrong directory.
BTW I would suggest that you not permit anyone to browse your directory as I just did.
Just found where you placed the file. It is at the top level http: // thewritingworld .com / KarenHS4.jpg instead of in the images directory.
