I have been running my site for about a year and, starting a few months ago, the images are not displaying on my site. They were all showing properly and all of a sudden stopped. The only ones that show are ones that are routed from other websites, but images uploaded from my computer to my media library are not showing.
Where there were images, there is nothing now (not a broken link icon, not a black outline, etc. Just white.). The only exception to this is my header which does not display but, in place of the image, does display the name of the file. They also will not load from a direct link.
I am running the most recent version of WordPress, the theme I use is Cutline and my host is Dreamhost. I checked the images in my ftp and they are where they belong and a haven't been moved since. I checked the “settings>media/miscellaneous” option in wordpress and the correct file is listed in “Store uploads in this folder” (“Full URL path to files” is blank and “Organize my uploads into month- and year-based folders” is checked). I checked the site on both Firefox and Internet Explorer and it looks the same on both browsers.
The website is http://ArtFeedOnline.com
After posting this issue on the WordPress.org forums and, by suggestion, tried: Checking file/directory permissions (set to 755: but please clarify what this should be so that I know I'm accurate here) and checking the .htaccess file, I was told that my best bet was to check with my host, DreamHost. (The WP thread can be seen here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/uploaded-images-not-displaying)
Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated!!! I’m now officially done with anything I know how to do! Thanks in advance.
