- Right-click your mouse on the empty space, and click Inspect.
- Go to File Manager and follow the file path that you found when inspecting the source code.
- If the file is misspelled or is not there, then rename the file to what it's supposed to be or re-upload the image under the correct directory. See article File Management: Navigating File Manager.
