I'm having trouble with an image not displaying. It only shows the placeholder:

Placeholder
It's probably something basic that I'm missing. Everything else is working okay. The correct images and text is called for each slide. Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist me with this.

<?php 

/** 

 * This file is responsible for the rendering of the header of the front page. 

 */ 

?> 

<!-- Home Slider --> 

<div id="home"> 

    <!-- Banner Image --> 

    <div id="banner_image"> 

    <!-- Banner TEXT Slides --> 

    <div id="text_slider" class="top_slider"> 

        <?php 

        if (get_theme_mod('topslider_slides')) { 

            foreach (get_theme_mod('topslider_slides') as $slide) { 

                ?> 

               <div id="owl-item" class="owl-item">
<!-- CHANGE TO BE THE IMAGE FOR THIS SLIDE -->
   <img src="background-image:url(<?php echo $slide['slide_image']; ?>" />
 <div class="hero_text item"> 

                    <h3><?php echo $slide['slide_title']; ?></h3> 

                    <p><?php echo $slide['slide_desc']; ?></p> 

                </div> 

    </div> 

            <?php 

            } 

        } 

        ?> 
   </div>  

</div> 

<!-- Home Slider -->

And the CSS

#text_slider {
  background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3) none repeat scroll 0 0;
  color: #fff;
  display: inline-block;
  height: 600px;
  left: 0;
  overflow-y: hidden;
  position: absolute;
  text-align: center;
  top: 0;
}

#owl-item {
 position: relative;
}
.owl-item img {
    background-repeat:no-repeat; 
    background-attachment:fixed; 
    background-size:cover; 
    height:600px;  
    left: 0;
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  width: 100%;
  z-index: 1;
}

.owl-theme .owl-controls {
  margin-top: -50px;
  position: relative;
  text-align: center;
  z-index: 10000;
}

.hero_text h3{
    vertical-align: middle;
    font-size: 50px;
    color: #fff;
    font-weight: 400;
    text-transform: uppercase;
}
.hero_text p {
    font-size: 18px;
    color: #fff;
}

<?php echo $slide['slide_image']; ?>

Open in new window


apparently, can you check the value of $slide['slide_image'] ?

also check the html output generated, and see if the image pointing too really exists? you may make sure the relative path of the image is set correctly.

Thanks Ryan, yes the relative path is correct and it is calling the information correctly. I can see it in the source on the page.

could it be browser's cache? are you able to copy the relative path and paste into your browser to show that image alone?

That's correct it doesn't show in any of the browsers. But pasting the relative path into each of the browsers does work.
