Kao Fan Lin I mean, your div names can be simple as grid_12 = grid12 so you don't miss the _ then you don't have any issue in your coding. remember more you write code more things will be added to it, to make your website better. So use simple things to refer to images and other than you can easily find or change when needed. too complicated names become issues when you forget a detail and image won't show, or code won't work. this is what I mean
Is your grid in the same directory? If so, are your file pathways correct?
Can you describe your folder setup? Name the folder/s your files are in. And post your links.
