Src attribute inside image tag:

Login >> my website >> manage website >> file manager >> upload files now.

  1. Double click on your uploaded HTML file. It will open the code of your HTML file. 
  2. Now look for all the image tags in your code. (You can find it by “Ctrl + F” keyboard shortcut.)
  3. Now in the src attribute add/change the image path and save. 
  4. Correct image path has been added/changed. 

How to locate the correct path of the image?

Copy that URL and paste it in the src attribute of your img tag. (step 3 in the previous section.) 

if you have uploaded  images directly to Public_html folder then you have to write src attribute as follows: img src=”imagename.jpg”
