Hi there I am very new to the scripts thing and I would like to put some flying animations onto my web site, i was trying to put the cupids on, but all I get is wee red crosses, so my question is how do i get the chosen picture to come up on the page? do I have t link it to a place on my computer or do i have to enter it into the script if so how do i do this?
i am sorry if this is a sad question but I am just learning. :eek:

1 ) Is your page live and you are having this problem even though it works OK in a local demo?

OR

2 ) Is even your local demo giving you these red x's?

whatever
.

This may be of help if it is the first problem:

Filenames and paths on the web are case sensitive, not so on your local machine. Make sure your images are on the server and that their paths and filenames listed in your code match exactly their location on the server, including upper and lower case letters, ex:

Image.jpg

image.jpg

image.JPG

IMAGE.JPG

and

IMAGE.jpg

are all different on the web, not so locally.

Script: Snow

OK...I hope I formatted that right. Here's my question:
Does the image have to be on my OWN site, or can it be hosted, say, on imageshack or other such sites? I am wanting to use it on a message board that is NOT on a website that I own. I can get the script to work, but not with the picture, just "the little red crosses," as Denise put it.

Here's the testsite I'm using to try it out:

Thanks in advance for your help.

Most likely that will be fine. Just use the full path to the image:


//Configure below to change URL path to the snow image
var snowsrc="http://www.imageshack.com/snow.gif"

Use the exact path and name of the image as it is on the image host.

Put the image(s) in the same directory as your page and in the script where it says to name the image(s) put the name(s). You haven't told me what script you are using, denieset32, so I cannot be more specific.

i just think that you should change http://www.imageshack.com/snow.gif to whatever the link of the image is...
