In your question, there are abosolutely no clues that will help us understand the question better.

However, i'd assume it has something to do with the path specified to the images. So, as first step, i would suggest checking the "src" attribute seeing these aren't only relative to your local environment (your computer).

I am sorry, thanks for your help! Yes it is definitely a path issue. Once I deployed the website I modified _config.yml with the following:

baseurl: '/classcodedesign'
url: "http://jessgrinberg.com" 

and my image tag looks like this:

    {% if page.image %}
    <img class="feat-img is-hidden-mobile" src="/img/{{ page.image }}">
    {% endif %}

Do you see any mistake?


Same thing happened to me. I was able to fix it in the page.image loop by adding "{{site.baseurl}}" to the src attribute:


I have the same problem. When I copied all the files into my github it didn't copy the _site file for some reason. Do I need that file to display the image?
