Bad Image Source

Postby TheCosmicKitty » July 17th, 2018, 8:19 am

For some reason, My comic pages won't show up. It's replaced by a grey image, and white bold writing that says 'Image Not Available', meanwhile, in the comic profile, it says 'Bad Image Source'. Both my viewers and I can't see the comic, and it's really frustrating. I'm pretty sure that the comic is within the size restrictions, so I'm not really sure why it does this.
How can I fix this problem?

Without having access to your CSS, it's hard to say, but the HTML output is showing a hard coded image_na.gif.

From your layout's comic page [ Page Design / Appearance -> Comic Page ] , please post everything between these two tags:

Code: Select all
<div id="comic_header">

<div class="comic_nav">

P.S. - Please make sure to post a link to your comic next time. Here is the link:

The layout code is fine, the problem seems to be that SJ thinks you didn't upload any images. If it was just a template problem, then there would be valid thumbnails in the comic's profile, but there aren't.

Are you sure you uploaded images when posting your pages?
You should also make sure you have JavaScript enabled when using SJ, some of the comic administration features rely on it.

If you did definitely upload images, were they valid image files?
