I'm trying to add a little slide show to a web page http://members.rogers.com/the_bensons/

I've modified the script (correctly I thought) so that the pictures are retreived. Here is my modification:

var fadeimages=new Array()
//SET IMAGE PATHS. Extend or contract array as needed
fadeimages[0]="http://members.rogers.com/the_bensons/welcome cougars den1.jpg"

Unfortunately, the pics don't load. All my files are in the same directory on the server. When I remove http://members.rogers.com/the_bensons/ and run it on my computer, it works fine. I guess I'm not pointing to the right location, but that's where everything is. The defective page isn't there at the moment, because, well, it doesn't work.

What am I missing or what do I have that I shouldn't?

Put this:


into your web browser, it doesn't exist. Try re-uploading the files.

Try using .JPG instead of .jpg

Case counts on the internet. It may not appear to matter on your computer, and normally it doesn't, but it is a major cause of loading errors on the internet, especially with pictures.

the case was the problem. Can someone please track down the person who decided to make case sensitivity an issue in HTML and give him / her a slap? I'm sure it's important to someone, somewhere but to an average guy just trying to put together a little site for his kid's hockey team....

thanks again

A little research later:

"Your Macintosh or Windows computer doesn't care if you use upper-case or lower-case letters, but the server (a UNIX system) does."

"Unix is an operating system, developed in the late 1960ís by AT&T Bell Laboratories by a researcher named Ken Thompson."

Therefore, you need to slap Ken Thompson. :) :p
