In Joomla! 1.5.8 images might not be displayed on contact pages. This issue will be fixed in the next release (1.5.9), but until then here are the steps how you can fix it yourself:
1. Open components/com_contact/views/contact/tmpl/default.php with a text editor.
2. Find this line (line 52):
<?php echo JHTML::_('image', '/images/stories' . '/'.$this->contact->image, JText::_( 'Contact' ), array('align' => 'middle')); ?>
3. Change this line to the following and save the file (note the missing '/' in front of the second parameter):
<?php echo JHTML::_('image', 'images/stories' . '/'.$this->contact->image, JText::_( 'Contact' ), array('align' => 'middle')); ?>
A community member, Strats, posted the corrected file on the forum, so you can also download it there (registration is required on the forum to download files) and replace the original file with the new one.
