Hi Imar,

Its working!! :-)) You were right, the path stored in the databse should be //localhost/wwwroot/Barlows/Images/1.jpg and then it works perfectly! I owe you a beer man!

I've now got another question, but I'll put that as a new post as it's nothing to do with this topic.

Thanks again Imar!

Mike

Before you send me that beer, you may want to consider the path you store in the database.

If you store something like /localhost in the database, on your machine things will work. However, this schema will break when you move your site to another machine and access it like http://www.yourdomain.com. In that case, localhost will no longer exist so your images will break.

That's why I suggested earlier to store images from the virtual root path.

So, if you browse to your site like this:

http://localhost/

and you access an image like this:

http://localhost/Images/MyImage.gif

then only store /Images/MyImage in the database. Once you move to YourDomain.com, you can still access the image with

http://www.yourdomain.com/Images/MyImage.gif where the italic part is the dynamic path from the database.

Hope this helps,

Imar
