No images are displaying on my site, it just shows their alt text.
They were working before and then they just disappeared. The files are definitely there and in the right place with the right links to them.
Why aren't they showing up though?

The system does not show a Free Hosting account attached to this forum account.

URL? Domain name?

One thing you'd need to be aware of is that the servers here are running linux, which is case sensitive, so image.jpg would not be the same as Image.jpg, case is important, check your code so the spelling in your code match the spelling on he file(s). This is by far the most common reason for images not showing up properly; misspelling or mismatching case between code and file.

zombiesim.net is the domain

I haven't touched the code though. At least not the images.

Could you check any .htaccess files in either your document root or in /images ?

There's an .htaccess in the root. What exactly in it would I be looking for?

Some sort of rewrite code.
Post here between CODE tags and we can point out any problems.

Code:
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.zombiesim.net/.*$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.zombiesim.net$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.zombiesim.x10.mx/.*$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.zombiesim.x10.mx$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://zombiesim.net/.*$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://zombiesim.net$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://zombiesim.x10.mx/.*$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://zombiesim.x10.mx$      [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$ - [F,NC]

I'm not familiar with .htaccess, so I'm not really sure what it means, but let me know if there's anything in there that might be contributing to this ^^

Just looked in chrome and it's giving me this:
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) http://zombiesim.net/images/banner.png
Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found) http://zombiesim.net/images/backtotophand.png

Hi qwigoqwaga,

Do you have a copy of your image files somewhere? Who knows why, but for some reason they are all showing as 0 (zero) size at the server. Try uploading your image files to the server again and this may fix your problem.

I've reuploaded them multiple times now. It hasn't helped D:

If I go through the file manager they're there and correct and the correct size.

I've located the problem; the .htaccess is perfectly fine, your permissions are not.

The images subfolder was set to 544 - this is just low enough for it to prevent the browser from seeing what's inside the folder (hence the 404). I've added the execute permission to Group and World, leaving it as 555 - the images now load as intended.

I'll be honest, I'm not super familiar with permissions so I can't shed any light on exactly why 544 wasn't working, but I know on folders a lot of CMS's prefer 755, so if it's working with 555 I'd say leave it for now. If it starts giving problems later, try 755 and see if that makes a difference then :)

Thank you very much :D

I'm not familiar with permissions either so I wasn't sure what they should be set at ^^'

A general rule of thumb for most web hosting related permissions:
Folders = 755
Files = 644
