Images not showing correctly

Images not showing correctly

I have a block of code that inserts an image from my database, if the image is not found it inserts a default image instead. My dbImages folder is up one level from my results page. When I run it it only shows the default image even though I think the path is correct. When I look at the generated code (firebug) it shows the path to the default image. Any help is appreciated.

<!-- Script for checking that the image is correct--><?php if(file_exists(str_replace(".JPG",".jpg",$row_WADAinventory["image"]))) { ?><img class="WADAResultThumb" border="0" src="../dbImages/<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["image"]; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["model"]; ?>" /><?php } else { ?><img class="WADAResultThumb" src="../images/default.jpg" border="0" alt="<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["model"]; ?>" /><?php } ?></a>

All the best

Tom

does the database column:
$row_WADAinventory["image"]

return only the image name? or does it also include the path?

if it only returns the name, you need to prepend the path in the file exists check:
file_exists("../images/".str_replace(".JPG",".jpg",$row_WADAinventory["image"]))

Images not showing

Hi Jason, thank you for the reply. The records are listed in the database showing the relative path for example: dbImages/image1.jpg. I tried using

<!-- Script for checking that the image is correct--><?php if(file_exists("../".str_replace(".JPG",".jpg",$row_WADAinventory["image"]))) { ?><img class="WADAResultThumb" border="0" src="../dbImages/<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["image"]; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["model"]; ?>" /><?php } else { ?><img class="WADAResultThumb" src="../images/default.jpg" border="0" alt="<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["model"]; ?>" /><?php } ?></a>

to no avail

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

Here is the info you requested

this problem comes from using a sub domain.

when you are at the subdomain:
m.senecagun.com, the files at the root of the site are not visible to the subdomain.

the subdomain cannot access files at senecagun.com using a relative path:
../dbimages

in a sub domain, you would need to access the files using a system path. I changed the code to:

php:
<!-- Script for checking that the image is correct--><?php if(file_exists("/homepages/8/d429129137/htdocs/".str_replace(".JPG",".jpg",$row_WADAinventory["image"]))) { ?><img class="WADAResultThumb" border="0"  src="http://senecagun.com/<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["image"]; ?>" alt="<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["model"]; ?>" /><?php } else { ?><img class="WADAResultThumb"  src="../images/default.jpg" border="0" alt="<?php echo $row_WADAinventory["model"]; ?>" /><?php ?></a>
