PHP using HTML editor - Post ID 250666

I have been building a web page for my wife's business using coffeecup software. The top element (logo) on each page is a png image. Everything worked well in the original html version of the page and later with the php version of the same page. I am converting to php so i can use php to "require" duplicate elements on each page (logo, footer, navigation, etc.). I had to stop work on the page for several months and when I resumed work on the php version of the page, the png images did not appear properly - they appeared as small squares.

I tried converting them to jpg images but the problem remained.

I'm using PHP 5.4.3 (64-bit version) and Apache httpd, both provided in a WAMP package. Any clue as to why what used to work doesn't anymore? What do I do to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like your images aren't located in the correct location or possibly your images are .PNG instead of .png.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

The HTML version of the file works fine which seems to indicate file location isn't a problem.
I tried using my jpg version of the image. Again HTML works, PHP doesn't.
I tried both upper case and lower case "png" both in the file name and in the code. Again HTML works in all cases, PHP does not.

The code I use to display the image in both files is:

<img id="logop" src="headerpics/abb-heading-1d.png" title="logop" alt="">

No errors being shown. I'm running this on my laptop with the standard "http://localhost/.../index.php".

Are you using the iframe script the form builder provides?

Are you using a host or are you going to stay with WAMP?
You can adjust your server to sparse php inside html with an adjustment to your .htaccess file.
Can we see example code of your page that your having problems with?

Here's the PHP code. The sidebar contents are just generic filler text. Main contents of page is an image carousel. The images in the carousel also don't show in the PHP version, but show up fine in the HTML version of the page

<p> Sometimes this would be called a <em>sidebar</em>, but it doesn't

Sidebars can be on tops of things, below things, but they are usually
beside things – hence it being a called a sidebar. </p>
