Sidebar picture not displaying

  1. Hi,

    I have a picture in a text widget in my sidebar. It used to display. Now, today, it disappeared when I re-opened the site to view a post.

    The link to the picture is still in the text widget.

    Can anyone tell me what has gone wrong, and how I can get my picture back displaying in my sidebar?

  2. Where did you host the image through? WordPress or another image uploading place?

  3. Hi nosysnoop. I uploaded through WordPress. It uploaded straight from my c:\ drive.

  4. The type that I have in the text widget, for displaying the picture, is:

    <img src="http://bentoboxsearch.wordpress.com/files/2006/11/mr-k.jpg" height="180" alt="koala" />

  5. I think WordPress has been having some issues with the servers they host the pix on; I've noticed some of my uploaded pix are not displaying either until you right click and select "Show Picture". Give them a Feedback.

  6. OK. Thankyou!

  7. Um, I get the picture fine.

    You do know though that even though you have a height limit in there, folks are having to download the entire 80kb picture just to get that little thumbnail to show up, right? Like those folks over dial up?

    May I politely suggest resizing it? :)
