Concerning images, once uploaded, they are in draft. You need to publish manually. If it is on a relation, e.g. a banner image on a Page class, the Page class needs to have a $owns property, that triggers the publication of images (and files) that the page owns

If it is in the HTML Editor that the images are uploaded, I believe you still have to manually publish the images before they render

I'm not 100% sure about the latter though, you might need to test and check that 🙂

What you could do locally, is symlink the public/resources/themes folder to your root themes folder, it would save you having to expose all the time

Ah ok so thats what the $owns property does

Quite a few results about the owns property here:

$owns publishes relations when a publishRecursive is triggered. This extra method is to prevent accidental publishing of related items that should not be published by default 🙂

You're welcome 🙂 That's what we're here for 😄
