I'm trying to customize twentyten theme.
this is part of header.php:

<body <?php body_class(); ?>>
<div id="wrapper" class="hfeed">
    <div id="header">

<img id="topL" src="images/img01.png"/> //this img I cannot insert  !   

</div><!-- #header -->

No errors. Simply - nothing happens.

Is there a public URL? – s_ha_dum Jan 4 '13 at 21:44
@s_ha_dum, no, it's on my localhost :( – bonaca Jan 4 '13 at 21:50
@toscho, Firebug shows all divs normally, including header div which is the parent div of the image, but there is no image inside, and there is no error. – bonaca Jan 4 '13 at 21:55
Look at the real source, not at the rendered JS DOM. – toscho Jan 4 '13 at 21:56
@toscho, important, Firebug shows my starting code version - i. e. <img id="topL" src="/images/img01.png"> – bonaca Jan 4 '13 at 21:57

Don't use a relative URL. If you look at the source you are probably trying to load the image from http://sitename.com/images/ when what you likely want is http://sitename.com/wp-content/themes/themename/images/. Assuming the image is in the theme directory in a folder that shares a directory with style.css, do this:

<img id="topL" src="<?php echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); ?>/images/img01.png"/>

s_ha_dum, the image is in the theme directory in a folder that shares a directory with style.css, yes it is, and I placed your code - and again - nothing ! – bonaca Jan 4 '13 at 21:42
I believe that should be echo get_stylesheet_directory_uri(); – shea Jan 4 '13 at 23:42
You are correct, @bungeshea. – s_ha_dum Jan 4 '13 at 23:44
