Hi again guys :D

I'm having issues with the Staff Page from the tutorial. I currently have 2 staff pages, 1 with a working picture and one without. I have tried making a third but I get the same result as the 2nd (not working). What happens is when a picture is uploaded I end up with [url=http://boonce.org/up/3385_screwy.JPG]this[/url].

I have tried a range of various image types (.gif doesn't like work either), but the main test one I am using is identical in size (90x90) to the image on page 1. note: If I use te SAME image as is on page 1, it works fine... but no other's work (tested about 25).

Can anyone help me out on this? It's very frustrating to have a staff page with only 1 member able to have a photo up. I have cleared cache and all the other "try this first" solutions. Also one more thing that may or may not be related....

When using the "With one from your file store" radio button, it does not reflect what is actually in the file structure. I have gone in via FTP and deleted the mass of random pictures that were uploaded, but this drop down still shows them as being in the uploads folder - and in the root it show 4 or 5 "new image" entries, however on the ftp there are no files here.

please help! :D

Yea theres some sort of issues between your assets / database listing. Mass uploading via FTP and removing files via FTP should work fine but it usually doesn't! You best bet is to do all the management via the assets screen. Or at least remove the assets via FTP then go into the assets panel and check everything is legit. If you still get that problem with the image not being ther go and view the image via FTP and make sure it works. It could be corrupted.

No good mate :(

Got the asset view looking the same as FTP reflects now, and using the asset screen to add/remove any images - but the image for the staff page still get the same result (apart from the 1 pic that works on the first staff page) as my previous screenshot.

where can I go from here?

I have opened an issue on this - if you can contribute any feedback on what might cause it, please do so
