    Default Image Display Issues in Internet Explorer

    Greetings All,

    I apologize if this is a repeat question, however, I have been away from things from awhile and times have changed. I was developing in NetObjects v10 and have since updated to v12.

    I have started developing my new site and since I use Chrome as my default I checked the site as I moved forward and all was fine. As I was closing in on finishing the initial draft of the site, I started testing in all browsers as would be prudent. To my horror, all of the images showed the RED X in Internet Explorer V8. The pages showed perfectly in all other browsers, Chrome and Firefox.

    I have polled my test market and the larger percentage will be viewing the site in IE so thus I must solve this problem.

    I have cleared the IE history, cache, etc to no avail.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping to launch the new website at the beginning of next week.

    Respectfully,

    Keith

    What type of images? GIF? JPG?

    have you used NoF's image optimiser?

    Do you have a URL?

    Is the site "live" on a web server, or are you just using local publish?

    If it's live, post a URL so folks can have a look to see what's going on. Otherwise we're just guessing.

    If you are just doing a preview or local publish, IE typically has a warning that comes up that you have to allow before much of the page is displayed.

    If you have not yet published online, create a folder called "/test/" and publish it there and post a URL. Just create a new publish profile, and instead of "/public_html/" for the directory, enter "/public_html/test/" and then perform an FTP publish. Have a look and if there are still problems, post the URL.

    (NOTE: If the name of your root folder is not /public_html/, change the directory accordingly.)

    Once everything is working, simply delete the /test/ folder and all it's contents on your server and you're back in business. Or keep the /test/ folder as a place to try tweaks to your site without affecting the real site.

    Default Image Display Problem in Internet Explorer

    I have just published the site to the following URL: www.29prgc.com/test. I have checked the site with both IE and Chrome and it is performing in the same manner is it did in the local preview.

    For some reason it appears that IE is unable to read the path of the image file which in in a .jpg format.

    Hope this helps.

    Many thanks for the assist so far.

    OK. Very weird. Looks fine in FF, but in IE8 (64-bit) under Windows 7, I get the universal "Image Not Found" symbol of the little red 'X'.

    Even if I go directly to the file location: http://www.29prgc.com/test/29PRGC_Logo.jpg I still get nothing in IE8.

    I could make a couple of suggestions, but I'd just be guessing. I wonder if any of our German scientists have seen this? Mia? Babs? Tommy?

    You could also try searching the forum archives. It may have come up before.

    Advise ALL users, designers, etc. to get rid of IE 8, and especially on
    later versions of Windows, upgrade to IE 9, and soon, IE10 for Windows 7.

    It's been known for a few years now that IE8 is a defective browser, and
    even Microsoft pleads with users and techs of all levels to rid
    themselves of it, and upgrade at least to IE9.

    Notice in all these replies the very low percentages of user
    satisfaction and performance with IE8 ?? And the fact that very few if
    anyone seems to be having any troubles with NOF 12 using IE 9 ?

    There's a good reason for it.

    Well, Joe, as web designers it's a little self-defeating to take a stance like that.

    Last I checked, IE7 (yes, "7") and IE8 had about 25% of the browser market in usage stats. That's a big chunk of the pie. A great many of those would be corporate users since a lot of corporations still use Windows XP and Windows 2000. So if corporate users are anywhere in your target audience, you'd best be compatible with IE8, at least.

    And as web designers, we do our clients a disservice if we exclude 25% of the population based on our own personal bias. This is also why I shy away from HTML5 and CSS3. Sure, it's cool, and I'd love to take advantage, but until the incompatible browser usage is in the single digits, I can't recommend it to my clients.

    And I thought IE9 was the Frankenstein browser. Wasn't simply installing IE9 cause for NOF to fail in many unflattering ways? I don't even have IE9 installed for that very reason.

    I respect your reply and stand, Ray.

    However, the finality still stands:

    Get RID of IE8, and replace it with IE9.

    The vast majority of NOF 12's troubles with IE8 stem directly from
    faults in IE8.

    There is no sense in having to change, alter or dissect NOF 12 problems
    with IE8 when the major fault lies not in NOF 12 -- it lies in IE8.

    IE9 is recommended by Microsoft, by knowledgeable long-term NOF users,
    and finally by NOF end-users who have finally realized the uselessness
    of IE8...starting three+ years ago now.

    Users of IE8 do so at their own peril.

    Default Picture problems for non-computer scientists

    Hi all, I just changed to NetObjects 12, and my website now looks awful:
    www.wissenleben.de
    Many pictures do not show and the navigation is all screwed up.
    I'd be very happy if you could help me figure this out as I have tried for 3 hours now and am ready to scream.
    But please use words that a complete computer idiot can understand as I don't know any of the abbreviations you are using.
    Thanks a ton!!!
    Maiken
