Images and Image Thumbnails not displaying


Installed on WSS3. Added the additional columns and added the web-part to the page. Everything works OK except the banner and tumbnail images don't display. I've tried using the supplied images as well as external ones.
Sharepoint is running on a non-standard port.
Is there anywhere I should look for starters to troubshoot?

I've create a new annoucement web-part and recreated the columns and views with the image columns as single line text and it's working great.

Fantastic. Thanks,

Thanks browned that solved my problem, it doesn't appear to like an empty value so you should ensure that you have an image path in both your banner and thumb image. Also ensure that you create and reference a new view that lists both the image fields.

I am having the same problems in displaying the images. If I make them ImageURL as a "hyperlink or picture" column then I cant just put the url of the image as the description requires some kind of text. Then url format of the picture will be "URL,<description>" and the image is not shown.

If I change the column type to single line of text then I get the same error as ashlaw00.

Any help would be appreciated.
