Hi all, I'm trying add a 3rd logo to our website footer in wordpress using  the following code.  So 'someimage1' and 'someimage2' are displayed fine.  But for 'someimage3' nothing is shown except a small image box with the actual logo missing - the link is working. I can view the logo in wordpress without any problem and media file uploaded OK.

the code is in appearance\editor\footer

Thanks

<footer class="footer navbar-fixed-bottom">
                  <?php wp_footer(); ?>
                        <div class="block left block1">
                              <div class="img-block left">
                                    <a target="_blank" href="http://some website 1">
                                          <img class="left" src="<?php bloginfo( 'template_url' ); ?>/images/someimage1.png" />
                                    </a>
                                    <a target="_blank" href="http://some website 2">
                                          <img class="left" src="<?php bloginfo( 'template_url' ); ?>/images/someimage2.png" />
                                    </a>
                                    <a target="_blank" href="http://some website 3">
                                          <img class="left" src="<?php bloginfo( 'template_url' ); ?>/images/someimage3.png" />
                                    </a>
                                    <div class="clearfix"></div>
                              </div>
                        </div>
                        <div class="clearfix"></div>
                        <div class="block right block2">

We need a link, cannot tell anything from a few line of code.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

The little image box means that your image (someimage3.png) not in the Images folder.

IF the file exists in the folder, does your development tool maintain a "solution" file like Visual Studio does.  If the image is not listed there, it will not show on the page (hence the square image icon)

Thanks Bob, I was wondering the same thing - the image has been saved as a png file just like the others in the required dimensions with the rest of the media files in Wordpress. I am able to view the image under the media section. When I switch someimage1 with someimage3 it didn;t work either. So if the code looks right (my biggest query) It's probably the image file. Would it be Ok to insert the location path of the image rather than just someimage3.png as above. I don't have any tools available to check unfortunately.

eg
images/websitename./wp-admin/someimage3.png" />

In switching them, do you mean that the Image3 changed to Image does not display right (may mean the image is bad),  Or do you mean that the 3rd link (now image one) is still showing the image icon (meaning the code ouwld be bad I think)

Your comment at the end could work, if the image is good.

The links open the websites fine. image1 doesn't get display after switching. Sorry I am unable to show the site. What is the actual code (syntax) for the path method mine was just an example?

I've used the absolute path and it's working fine..

 <a target="_blank" href="http://some website 3">
                                          <img class="left" src="http://file url of image in wordpress" />

Not a problem, as long as you keep the same server setup.  At my place, we go through a dev, staging, and prod phase.  And the URL changes with each level.   So much fun.
