Inserted images not showing in Joomla: Troubleshooting steps

If you are experiencing issues with inserted images not showing in Joomla, here are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem:

Check the image URL

Inspect the HTML source code of the page where the image should be displayed. Look for the <img> tag that refers to the image and check the src attribute. Ensure that the image URL is correct and accessible. You can try opening the image URL directly in a browser to see if it loads.

Check the error logs

If none of the above steps resolve the issue, check the Joomla error logs for any relevant error messages. The error logs can provide valuable information about what might be causing the problem.

You can also check your Nginx/Apache error.log and access.log on the server.

Verify file permissions

Make sure the image file and its parent directories have the correct permissions set.

Clear Joomla cache

Sometimes, cached data can cause images not to display correctly. Go to the Joomla administration area and navigate to SystemClear Cache to clear the Joomla cache. After clearing the cache, refresh the page and check if the images appear.
