is the document in the web root?  If not then the above will not work.

What is the address of the page you are changing?

When you say web root do you mean this?:

C:\CFusionMX\wwwroot\MySiteName\CCImages\FinalImages\yellowbutton.gif

When I select the yellow button by clicking the  src folder, I go to the above path and once selected this is how it appears in the cfm page

/CCImages/FinalCCImages/yellowbutton.gif

I dont get this site and document relative stuff.  Please help!

the page (one of the pages) where that image should appear is located here:

C:\CFusionMX\wwwroot\MySiteName\TheCFMpage.cfm

if your domain is for example

http://www.domain.com

and your images are

http://www.domain.com/image/

then you can refer to it absolute like /image/image.gif

if your images are located in

http://www.domain.com/somedir/image/

then you can refer to it absolute like /somedir/image/image.gif

absolute is taken from the root, i.e. http://www.domain.com

Hi Tacobell777

I did this /somedir/image/image.gif

It did show up in IE but in DW it has that grey torn paper image.  Is this usually the case?

or i am not doing things right?

Thanks

it depends, if DW can find the web root and how you have it setup.
also if part of the path is dynamic then DW will not find it, i.e. #webRoot#/image/

what u've done indicates that "CCIMAGES" is a directory present in ur ROOT ... Followed by FinalCCImages & then with the yellowbutton.gif
<img src="/CCImages/FinalCCImages/yellowbutton.gif">
the key here is - ur travelleing from root - towards teh gif ...

& not from ur calling document towards teh gif [<img src="CCImages/FinalCCImages/yellowbutton.gif">]
as this wld have meant that u have a subfolder called CCImages in ur calling file directory

generally DW will set up links as relative to document ... but if u can figure out a way to set up a project or a root kinda stuff in DW [i dunno if this is possible] - then the same link wld work in both DW & IE.

When I say the page address I mean on the web.

How do you access in Internet Explorer?

If you are using the DW preview then it is possible they will not show up.

Try pushing your files to the live server (both page and image) and then see if they are accessible directly from the browser.
