Announce List Images


#1

I’m having a problem with images showing up in my announce list mailings. I’ve put the full URL of the images in the mailing. I’m just doing tests now, but when it comes to my inbox… no images. Anything else I’ve set up with CSS works fine - borders, colors, fonts, padding, etc.

I’ve viewed the source of the email and cut and pasted the URL and the images come up, so I know they are linked properly. I’m a seasoned web designer, so I know my stuff.

Also, I get HTML email from other mailing lists, so I know it’s not my mail program.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Thanks, I will. I did discover that jpgs will not show up. I have ran several tests and sometimes the images show up and sometimes they don’t. Jpgs don’t ever show up… the gifs and pngs are sporadic.

I’ll definitely submit a support ticket.

I regularly send out gifs that have no problem displaying.

Have you tried the HTML preview in the announcement list window before you send out?

When you say you’ve viewed the source of the email do you mean before you’ve sent or after you’ve received? I’d be interested to know how the source looks in you INBOX.

Just a thought… do you have hotlinking protection enabled for your domain? Could your .htaccess file be set up to not allow .jpgs to be displayed off-site?

Hi,

I’ve been running tests on the announce list feature. It’s odd that some images aren’t showing up, but others are. Everything shows up fine in the preview. I have the full URL on all of them. Hotlink protection is not turned on. The logo and the background images in the CSS are not showing up. The 3 ad images are good.

I’ve looked at the source code of the email in my inbox and everything is perfect. I’ve run my code and stylesheet through a validator and it’s good.

Man, I give up! I’ve posted the email online so you can see what it is supposed to look like.

I’ve also contacted support on this issue. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong, or if it’s a bug.

Here is the source code from the email in my inbox (below).

Thanks!
Michele

One thing you guys should check on. I noticed a long time ago (when upload a web page) is if you have an image and you set the width or the height to less than 100 it will get parsed. Meaning if you look at the actual html file after it has been recieved, the entire line than has the image tag is removed.
My work around is to remove the size elements from the image tag. Then the image will display and at the current sized is was saved. This means if the image needed needs to be 35 x 35 then the image it self has to be saved at 35 x 35.
So my theory is you may be having the same problem with html emails as I did with a web page.

Well, I’ve made a bit of headway. It seems to depend on the browser and mail program in use.

If I use all png files, everything shows up fine in my email. I’m using Mail on the Mac. I don’t know why jpgs and gifs aren’t showing up because they show up from other mailing lists.

I have 3 webmail accounts and checked them all. CSS shows up in two, but now background images that are linked through the CSS. Another, no CSS at all… just the images.

I had similar results in Firefox and Safari. Support for CSS on Mac IE is sad, and not many use it, so I didn’t bother with it.

So, I’ve decided to forego using background images in my CSS, although I love the way it looks (when it works).

Thank you everyone for your time and help.
