Can't get an image to display on my webpage no matter what I do

I have a website: http://goodkarmamarket.com and going to it you will see there is a dark blue rectangle on the right hand side (below the white text with the blue background) and for the life of me I can't figure out why it's not showing up. It's similar to the pink button on the left, with a text overlay.

I've looked over the code a dozen times and can't see what's different from the pink button code that does show up and the blue button code that does not show up.

And just to prove that the image file is in the images folder, attached is a screen shot. You can see the source code but if you want me to post the code I'm uploading, it is also attached.

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

I went to a different computer on a different network and I still see the image like above in Firefox and Opera 27.

mabehrAuthor Commented:
wow, that is strange. Yes, I see it in Chrome but not in IE or Firefox even though I cleared my cache in firefox.

Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
Did you do a Ctrl-F5 refresh of the page?  Can you load it directly from http://goodkarmamarket.com/wp-includes/images/post_ad.jpg ?

mabehrAuthor Commented:
yes, I can see the image through the link but a Ctrl F5 doesn't change anything. Strange.

mabehrAuthor Commented:
what version on Firefox are you seeing the image?

Chris StanyonCommented:
Just to back up what Dave's said - I can see it fine too - one thing that I would suggest is that you fix your HTML - currently your page is not valid HTML and gets rendered in Quirks mode - without going into detail, that's not good - you'll never get consistency across browsers in Quirks mode, and debugging can be nigh on impossible.

Start by changing the very first line of your HTML to:

<!DOCTYPE html>

And then run it through the W3C validator - fix any errors and then check your page again.

Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
I'm on Firefox 35.0.1 like you are and Chrome and Opera are current also.

mabehrAuthor Commented:
Thanks, Chris. Did what you said and added the line and did check:

W3C CSS Validator results for http://goodkarmamarket.com (CSS level 3)
Congratulations! No Error Found.

This document validates as CSS level 3 !

Still don't see the image in my firefox browser.

Alicia St RoseOwner & Principle Developer/DesignerCommented:
mabehr,
You want to validate your HTML. That's where you'll see the errors.

Are you also aware that you can use background-color, border and border-radius in CSS3 to achieve the same effects you're getting by using images. Especially, for this section at the bottom of your page:

"Buy and sell directly from friends worldwide!
A community alternative to Craigslist, Ebay and Etsy"

Right now it's being cut off and extending past your image. By creating the background with CSS3 the div would grow with the content and you'd always have the text inside.

mabehrAuthor Commented:
although I have yet to see the image in my browser, I'm at least comforted to know that others are seeing it and will get to the bottom of it sooner or later.
