[SOLVED] header image rotating through phantom (white) images

I've checked all the posts I could find and haven't been able to solve this issue. I've upgraded today to Atahualpa 3.4.5, but that hasn't solved the issue either.

I've uploaded custom images (via SecureWebDisk) to the correct images/header folder -- no spaces in the file names or directories, and all are jpgs of roughly the same small filesize as the original images. The images display fine, but the rotation rotates through a period of white that, when you view the page source, are hidden copies of the new images -- see below. For example, one original image is greenGirlSm.jpg, and the hidden phantom copy is ._greenGirlSm.jpg.

When I view the hidden files (on my mac) they do not appear in the images/header folder and the Finder search function can't find them.

I've tried deleting, re-uploading and renaming the image files but it hasn't gotten rid of the phantom images.

Anyone have any suggestions? I don't know how they're being created or where they are to delete.

code from View / Source
'var HeaderImages = new Array('http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/greenGirlSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/poppyBeeSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/._winterTreesSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/._fallTreesSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/._greenGirlSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/._poppyBeeSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/fallTreesSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/._flowerRocksSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/winterTreesSm.jpg','http://healthemoneybook.com/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/images/header/flowerRocksSm.jpg');'

what ftp program are you using to upload teh images? You should be able to see them on the server and delete them.

What program did you use to create teh images on the mac? I use a mac and have never seen this situation

hi juggledad,

I used photoshop express to create the jpgs ... save for web menu command ... it has done a great job for all my other web images.

I uploaded via SecureWebDisk (HostGator) rather than ftp -- I find it's easier for me. They don't appear in the Finder window even when I configure the mac to show hidden files. I checked via cpanel FileManager on the server and I can't see the ghost files that way either. Very weird. Maybe I can create a replacement header folder and start fresh and upload via ftp? This hasn't happened to me before either. I was wondering whether it was something in the javascript.

ahh... I opened up the FileManager through cpanel again and there was a special checkbox to view hidden files that I hadn't seen before. I did that and voila, there the ghost files were. I deleted them and now all is fine! Thank you for your help juggledad! If you hadn't mentioned it, I wouldn't have checked again.

the code reads all teh files in the folder to create that array. I'd still use an FTP program to look at the files on the server and remove them that start with the '.'

I've used 'Fetch' mas my FTP program for years.
