When you FTP to the site can you see dir: thumbnails & pages, if so where ?

As the link is broken somewhere. One way to test this is to drop a
index.html in each dir: with it's name then try to see it with your browser.

Earthlink uses the unix operating system.  It is sensitive to letter case.

If you have a link to "zot.jpg" and the actual name is "Zot.jpg", it
will fail.  Check that every link has the exact upper and lower case
as the actual file name.

http://home.earthlink.net/~tony_cooper213/index.html works, but
instead of thumbnails the links appear, and the links don't link.  

I have ftp'd a number of pages up with no problems.  However, these
have been pages of html with links.  My links are in the page, but the
Gallery has several folders that are created by Adobe.

How are your links to your images coded? Relative paths or absolute of
your local folder on your hard drive (a common error)?


from www.domain.com/index.html

<img src="Subfolder/pix.jpg">  (will work)
<img src="/Subfolder/pix.jpg"> (will also work if index.html is in your
document root)
(this will obviously fail!)

Also I noticed your listed your document as 'Index.html' If you build a
webpage on a Windows system it is case insensitive, i.e.,

Index.html == index.html == INDEX.HTML == InDex.HtMl

This is NOT the case with *nix based web servers and so if in the
webpage the image src is "Subfolder/pix.jpg" but the image is named
"Subfolder/pix.JPG" is could work locally on your Windows system but
fail when uploaded.

Take care,

I know I'm not explaining this clearly, but what you've said above
would be relevant if I had created a page using html.  I can do that,
and get it to work fine.

However, this is something created in Adobe Photoshop 7, and I don't
write the tags.  With the Adobe Web Gallery, you put images in a
folder and Photoshop creates the pages.  I don't have to write any
tags in this program.

My problem seems to be just FTPing the right folders so that they are

You might wonder at this point why I'd want to bother with Adobe Web
Gallery if I can put up images on a site by writing my own page.
Well, it's easy to share pictures with family by just dumping the
images in a folder and hitting "Automate".  Some text can be added,
but it's basically just images in some standard templates.  I use PS7
quite a bit to tweak my photographs.

Last....other people use Adobe Web Gallery with Earthlink, and it
bothers me that I can't figure out how to do it when others can.
