Did you upload your own page that actually uses this picture?
yes i have already upload the HTML file but it dosent work everytime i go to my own portal the image cant view
Images uploaded via the file manager have "captiveportal-" added to the begining of them by default, so you would have to amend your html file and set the image as !(<strong>captiveportal-</strong>yourimage.jpg)
Appologies if you have done this already.
ive done it already but stilli cant view the image :-(
my image name is "captiveportal_page_01.jpg" then when i upload the file using fil manager the file name has change it will now "captiveportal-captiveportal_page_01.jpg"
then i go to my HTML file to change the path of the image as ""
and yet i cant still view the image to my portal

Files that are uploaded, are placed here :
and a link is place here :
Do a ls -al in that directory to see that your images are actually just links.

Note that when you delete a file in the filemanger, the file in /var/db/cpelements/ will be removed, but the link in /usr/local/captiveportal is still there (and pointing to nothing !).
In my case, /var/db/cpelements/captiveportal-artigny.png is deleted - so /usr/local/captiveportal/captiveportal-artigny.png is 'dead'.
If you upload a file named test.jpg, it will be stored with this name : captiveportal-test.png
If you upload a file named captiveportal-test.png, then the name will not be prefixed 'ones more'.
All this so you get some more grip on it ;)
When i take a backup is the original CP page there, i wonder if i not getting it to work and want to restore?

You can find the original CP file here :
Look for lines 91 up untill 116 - everything including and between the html tags.
You'll find the same concept for the default error page : line 134 - 147.
