    images not appearing on web page

    I downloaded the code archives and put in in a folder I call my website folder and it is located under my documents. I am still having trouble with the images showing on my web page. what am I doing wrong?

    this is the tag that I type to typed to retrieve the divers-circle.jpg image: <p><img src="divers-circle.jpg" width="200" height="162"
    alt="A circle of divers practice their skills" /><p/>

    to view my web page I click: my document > my web site folder>bubble under.com. Am I suppose to do anything else other than what I have already stated?

    I am afraid you post does not make any sense. You are talking about a webserver and then My documents.

    Do you have a website on the internet somewhere or are you using a local host or some software on the PC? Either way nothing should be in My Documents.

    If you are using a program on your PC the images folder should be in the same folder as your website.

    Images placed in image folder called images would be linked to like:
    Code:
    <img src="images/divers-circle.jpg" width="200" height="162" alt="A circle of divers practice their skills" />

    sorry for the misunderstanding. Let me first say I am using windows 7. But let me start over and maybe you can understand me. I am using the book: Build Your Own Web Site the Right Way, Using HTML & CSS by Ian Lloyd. I am on page47, chapter 2 of the book- "Your First Web Page". I had no trouble making the email address clickable. But I am having trouble getting my images to appear on the web page. I believe I followed the instruction for downloading "code archives". I created a spot for my web page in my document and called it "My Web Site Folder". The downloaded code archives is located in the "My Web Site Folder".

    I had not trouble creating the heading or paragraphs. I am working on the Bubble Under.Com web page. I am having trouble with the image not appearing on the web page. The following is the image tag I used, it is direct from the Build Your Own Website book by Ian Lloyd: <p><img src="divers-circle.jpg" width="200" height="162"
    alt="A circle of divers practice their skills" /></p>

    to view my web page, I go to document>My Web Site Folder> HTML Document, "Bubble Under.Com" then my web page appears but the image of the diver-circle.jpg image does not appear. My question is, am I missing a step or is there something else I need to do?.

    Another thing, I want to follow all the rules for being a part of this forum, do I use the "post quick reply" button or "reply to thread" button? does it matter to you?

    I found out what I was doing wrong. I had to copy and paste the image from the download folder spbooks-HTML3-76a6ebp folder and place them in the folder I made for the web page.
    As I go along in this book, I make notes to myself so I won't have to go through an unknown problems such as this again. thanks for your help.

    Glad you have it sorted Linda - as you have found everything should go in the root folder or folders within the root folder. In your case the Bubble Under.Com folder.
    Another thing, I want to follow all the rules for being a part of this forum, do I use the "post quick reply" button or "reply to thread" button? does it matter to you?
    I would you use the reply to thread; the post quick reply submits your post to the thread. It is good to put the code with the "code" or "php" tags when/if you start using php as it makes it stand out and easier for others to read. You get the code tags in quick reply by clicking the # icon. You have more options when selecting the "Go Advanced" button; formatting, emoticons etc. and the php tag option.

    I guess something's wrong up with the server..that's why this problem is persisting..
    The problem has been found @avitalsamson ;
