A friend emailed to say she’d installed a WordPress plugin to make it easy for visitors to add her site to various social sites such as Digg and Del.icio.us. But, there was a problem:
You will see that I have got half way towards adding links to four social bookmarking sites — except unfortunately I don’t see an image! Clearly I have put something in the wrong place.
I viewed the source of my friend’s page and located the URL for one of the images:
I pasted that URL directly into the browser and found there was no image. Then I checked the plugin’s page at WordPress, which led me to a support page.
Apparently the plugin has an error in the pathname. The underscore in the
social_bookmarks folder name should be a hyphen:
The solution turns out to be: either rename the folder to have a hyphen or change the plugin as explained on the support page.
If you find images missing and unaccounted for try viewing the source of the page and paste the image’s URL directly into the browser. If it displays that way then there’s something wrong with your page. If it doesn’t show up there either, then there’s probably something wrong with the pathname or filename.
