PHP to output an HTML table but when it does the pictures refuses to display.

The php array $members['smallimg'] linkts to the .jpg file for example

// If there is at least 1 member listed as Faculty, then we are going to get the header and table set up and ready to display each member.
    if ($facultyfound == true)
        $html .= '<h2><a name="faculty"></a>Faculty</h2>';

        $html .= '<tr>';
        $html .= '<th width="12%">Photo</th>';
        $html .= '<th width="11%">Name</th>';
        $html .= '<th width="9%">Title</th>';
        $html .= '<th width="14%">Contact</th>';
        $html .= '<th width="54%">Research</th>';

        $html .= '</tr>';

        for ($i = 0; $i < $size; $i++)
                While we are looping through the for loop, we check each node to see if that node's information corresponds to the given department
                shortname and that the member is Faculty. If that is true, then we display the necessary information about them. If the XML element
                that normally contains information is actully empty, then it will just leave that space empty on the table as well in the corresponding
            if ($members[$i]['department'] == $thedepartment && $members[$i]['facultytype'] == 'Faculty')
                $html .= '<tr name="'.$members[$i]['shortname'].'">';
                $html .= '<td style="vertical-align: middle; text-align: center;"><a name="'.$members[$i]['shortname'].'"></a><img src="'.
                    $members[$i]['smallimg'].'" width="70" height="70"></td>';
                $html .= '<td style="vertical-align: middle; text-align: center;"><a href="'.$deptURL.'/faculty/faculty.php?name='.
                    $members[$i]['firstname'].' '.$members[$i]['lastname'].'">'.$members[$i]['firstname'].' '.$members[$i]['lastname'].', '.

                $html .= '<td style="vertical-align: middle; text-align: center;">'.$members[$i]['title'].'</td>';

                $html .= '</tr>';


I could be wrong but it doesn't look like you have a picture extension at the end of your file name:

> $members[$i]['smallimg'].' 

it just has the . how is the browser to know what the file type is.
should be something like

<img src='$members[$1]['smallimg'].png' /> 

maybe that's because it can't find the image.
anyway, when the links are to a page in the same webapp - deployed on the same server, providing a complete url (such as http:// .... ) may not be what you want to do. same goes for images

well I can't get your point try to be more clear...

@sheikhali what do you need clarification on?

@stultuske what should i do instead?
