    We're moving our website to another host, and on the new host, the URL is of the numeric type, specifically 74.54.78.50

    We need therefore to access an image off the site for use on the cart pages, and this is hosted here:

    http://74.54.78.50/~telosco/images/main_banner.jpg

    However this URL comes up as invalid in the Logo and Header Message section of the cart Set Up.

    Does anyone know why? And is there a way around this at all?

    Thanks

    David

    That looks like a temporary URL, this should change when you move to your new host to be yourdomainname.com/images/image.jpg

    I agree with Nick that it looks like a temp url. Images won't work as long as it's on the temp site.

    Thanks for the comments. It's the URL that my web manager gave me. As far as I know it's the permanent URL and not temporary - and we're not moving the domain servers to him - the domain is just pointing there via standard means.

    I'm seeing if there is an English equivalent for the name, and will email Mal on this one as well, as to my mind, the 'number' URL is a perfectly good ID for the URL - it works and everything!

    Cheers
