My images are not showing when I publish my FrontPage website.

When I upload my FrontPage website the images are broken via the domain name, but they are there on my local PC. How do I make them work on the web server?

  • First of all you need to create a folder where you intend to store your images on the server. (e.g. domain.com/images)
    In this example you would simply create a folder on your local machine called /images within your website root folder. Your website root folder is usually within your documents. (Its the place that FrontPage is saving all of your html files).
  • Next (using File Explorer) copy all of your website images into this new images folder.
  • Now you need to open FrontPage and open your website.
  • Next right click on the images that do not work and select “Picture Properties”.
  • Next select the “General” tab.
  • In the “Picture Source” box, edit the location so that it uses the image within your new images folder.
    E.g. /images/image1.jpg

Here’s an example of an incorrect path that is likely to already be there:
file:///C:/Documents and Settings/your name/My Documents/My Pictures/image1.jpg

Once set correctly hit OK. The image should now be displayed correctly.

Now when you publish your site, the images will be uploaded as well.
