I've uploaded my site, why are some of the images on my site not appearing?
Linux servers are case sensitive when it comes to file names. We therefore recommend that all files that you upload into your website directory, have file names containing only lowercase characters. This includes image files. This means for example, if you have uploaded an image called 'picture.gif', the filename for the image must be all in lowercase characters, eg. not 'Picture.gif', or 'PICTURE.GIF'. Any links or references within your website that are linked to this 'picture.gif' image, must also be named in lowercase.

It is also good practice to not use character spaces in the file names. If you want to include a space between words in a file name, it is best to use a dash '-' or an underscore '_'. eg. flower picture.gif, could be renamed flower-picture.gif, or flower_picture.gif

Once you start using these conventions in your website design, they will very soon become second nature.
