-appears for a few all of a sudden. 'The image' links to a 404 error message.
I've tried republishing and a few other things.
Try to use filenames that do not contain special characters such as commas.

Just a user who loves to dive into techie stuff... and sometimes gets into trouble for that.
I thought commas were supposed to be OK, and others that have commas are loading, But I do see a couple single quote marks ' and will try that.
Now the ones that I changed the file names on have disappeared
for file and folder names, use only letters, numbers, hyphens, and underscores. No spaces or special characters. You can set up Lightroom to remove such characters (Preferences > File Handling)
Thanks for pointing there in Lightroom.
I don't think that's the problem though. Spaces have been throughout for a number of weeks now. Other pages working.
Is this confirmed by the authors? No spaces or commas? (that would not be great)
I did a republish and edit yesterday (don't remember exactly what) then the problem appeared.
Then I did a republish to remove single quote character and that file produced the error.
In the error URL the spaces are already replaced with hyphens http://masseyart.com/galleries/album-se … -18-in.jpg
It seems more likely that something is corrupted, and I would need to clear a cache or remove a republish in some manner
Is this confirmed by the authors?
If you think outside of Backlight, characters such as quotes have special meaning on the web. You're running a website and those characters aren't compatible with the web.
Looking at your gallery, I see the first image that fails to load is at http://masseyart.com/galleries/album-se … -20-in.jpg. The equivalent thumbnail does exist. Can you look at your Publisher settings, make sure that both 'Push metadata without updating existing photos' and 'Publish thumbnails without updating other renditions' are not checked, and re-publish the photos in the album?
That was it Ben,
The second one, 'Publish thumbnails without updating other renditions' WAS checked. And that was the fix. thank you!
Apparently at an earlier time I had checked it doing something with thumbnails and forgot to turn it back.
-getting to know things much better, but probably would never have found that on my own.
-will keep an eye on file naming best practices
thank you thank you
