Wrong URL for attachment image in calendar list
Odd issue where the attachment image in Events and Announcement lists seem to be trying to pull the image from the wrong url. It doesn't find the image so it just displays the Alt text and red x - indicating it can't find the imageExample:if the url is http://sharepoint.somecompany.org/employee_resources/human_resources/Lists/HumanResourcesNews/AllItems.aspxthe url for the attach.gif is http://sharepoint.somecompany.org/employee_resources/human_resources/_layouts/images/attach.gifwhile the url for recurrance (recur.gif)is http://sharepoint.somecompany.org/_layouts/images/recur.gifany ideas what's going on &/or where to resolve?Thanks,deb

Hi Deb.,They are both pointing to the same location the Virtual Path _Layouts/images points to the Physical Path C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\IMAGES you will find both files attach.gif and recur.gif... _Layouts can be called from anywhere in SharePoint....I hope this helps you track down the error...-IvanIvan Sanders My LinkedIn Profile, My Blog, @iasanders.
