Let's Publish a Webpage  
Things to check
before you publish
Check folder for contents
  • Open folder containing web page and images
  • ALL images and your webpage file should be inside that folder. 
  • DO NOT change names of images at this point. 
  • YOU CAN change the name of your webpage if it is not correct.
 
Check images
  • View code of webpage
  • Move cursor to <html> tag (click mouse in tag)
  • Find all occurrences of "src" in web page
  • Each one should look similar to the following:

    src = "someimage.gif"   or   src="someimage.jpg"

     

  • if instead it looks like:

    src="some/someimage.gif"  (image not in folder)
    ** make sure you are aware of the absolute path to image

    src="some%20image.gif"    (space in name)

    src = "somgimage.bmp"     (can't use bit map image)

    Then you need to remove the image(delete) from the webpage and fix the problem and reinsert image in webpage.
