Hi
I turned off the add blocking on the browser and it still does not work.
No images appear on the web pages.
Any idea how to fix?

Thanks

Yes you need to look at the webserver's configuration. This is cannot be a silverstripe issue if _ALL_ images are missing.

If you open your dev tools in Chrome and look at what's happening in the Network tab when the browser tries to load images you might find some clues there.

Are other static resources like javascript files loading okay?

Do you have a <% base_tag %> in the head section of your Page.ss template?

Hi

Thanks for your reply.
What is this base tag?
Can you please write the code out for me?

Thanks

Inspect the HTML that is output.
A the very beginning, it should look something like:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="...">
<head>
<base href="http://yoursite.com/ssinstall/" />

If it does not, then you need to add to your template, as the very first thing inside the <head> tag:
<% base_tag %>

This is very important in SilverStripe as all paths are given relative to the install root.

We are helping you fix it.
Are img tags being output to the html?
If so, what happens if you try to open the link directly?
