How To Resolve An Issue With WordPress Theme And Images

Some WordPress themes will create an error in which the site will display the colors and font, but not the images. This article will show you how to resolve that issue.

Step 1: Check the Permissions on the Images folder.

Check the permissions of the image file within CPanel. Commonly, these are set too low. set them to 755.


Step 2: Check the .htaccess File

If this still does not work and you verified the images are in fact on your server, check the .htaccess file in the folder public_html for a similar code to this.


RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$ - [F,NC]

and change this rule to:

#RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$ - [F,NC]


This will remove the rule that may be blocking the loading of image files.
