Permalink & Text Widget problems
I have two problems:

1. When I change my permalinks from the default setting to one of the other options, my menu bar links to pages don't seem to work anymore. I get a message that the page cannot be found. It doesn't matter which setting I select for the permalinks.

2. I have placed the following html into a text widget in the right column, after following jugglehead's instructions to someone else on the forum. (I've placed the images into the directory as he instructed):

<a href="http://www.montfordfestival.com/Festival/"><img src="http://montford.org/newsite/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/my_images/festivalcube.jpg" />

No image shows up. If I place alternate text there as in: alt="Montford Festival" - the words show up as a link which works fine. Just can't seem to get the image to show up. I've tried this with three separate images and none of them are showing. I've checked the directory on my server site, and the images I uploaded are exactly where they are supposed to be.

What could be going on?

1 - do you have an .htaccess file in the wordpress root? when you change the permalink, wordpress trys to write the changes to that file. Read up on htaccess and permalinks on wordpress.org

2) check to make sure that the file is where you think it is, if it is, then check the file permissions. It maybe that the permission is set so no one can view it. If you just put the address (like: http://montford.org/newsite/wordpres...stivalcube.jpg) in the browser address bar, you should be able to see it. If you can't, it's either not there or it is a file permission error.
