A lot of the new reviews have broken cover art links.

That's all I have to say.

Is there a way that we can enter the cover image link in a field when we submit the reviews so that they appear when posted?

Which ones? I've looked at the 15 most recently added reviews, and every single review is loading the cover art correctly.

I'd prefer to leave adding covers and affiliate links to Geoff, personally.

That's cool. I was just figuring it might be one less thing he could worry about.

As for the images, nearly everything more recent than Karate Kid 2 from 7/6/01 is a broken link on my Netscape. It seems to work in IE. That's weird.

The HTML code, at least for the display of images, looks fine. I haven't changed any of the scripts for that for quite a while, so I'm not sure what could've changed between then and now.

I don't know. I know I'm not crazy. Check the page out on Netscape. I've looked on Mac and PC and the links are broken on both (Netscape only). I checked you HTML and there doesn't seem to be anything different. Are the images somehow different?

I just can't leave this alone. These images won't show on Netscape on 3 computers, including mac and pc for me. Plus, copied local, they still don't work, plus they won't open in Photoshop. Whoever is creating these jpgs is somehow doing it differently than before. Maybe it's the wrong color format or something. I don't quite understand because they show in IE. Feel free to tell me to shut up and leave it alone at anytime.

These are the four images on the review page for me right now:









On Netscape only Die Hard works for me. They all work on IE.

He hasn't lost his mind. Looks fine on my PC in IE (5), but not in Netscape (4.08) where only Die Hard shows up. The images are also bad on my Mac in Netscape (4.73) and IE (4.5).

I think I know what's going on. Are the covers still not showing in the review server?
