I am a stone-cold beginner to Drupal. I have done some reading on the Drupal website and have seen some tutorials. I have a general sense about how Drupal works, but that’s about it.
I have been asked by a client to do some work on their Drupal site. The site is currently fully functional and well-behaved. I am told it is running Drupal 6. I have downloaded the site and database to my PC. I am using WAMPSERVER64 (Apache v 2.2.17, PHP v 5.3.3 and MySQL v 5.1.52) and want to do my testing and development locally before messing with the production site.
I have been able to get the website home page to display correctly, except there are several images which do not display. You can go to http://www.claim-il.org/
to view the page and follow along. On that page you will see 3 photos. None of these pictures display locally. Also, at the bottom of the page, you will see a purple text box with a Donate button. The button does not display either.
When I view the source code sent to the browser, I see that the file names for the 3 photos all have special characters (spaces, underscores or brackets) in their names. They are all also located in the same directory (/sites/default/files/imag
When I display the home page in my test site, the URL is http://localhost/claim/index.php
. I have tried setting the $base_url to http://localhost/claim
p, but it did not resolve the problem.
Since I downloaded the site from a working version, I suspect it is a local setting of some kind. Where do I go from here?
