View Full Version : Browser Issues

12-28-2006, 08:23 PM
'm new to Dreamweaver and set up a simple web site for my employer. But the html file is not working the way that I want it to. I have 5 flash images in the middle of the page that I would like to keep its place but it is acting like a static web site. When I view the site in exployer the images sometimes come up in 2 or more rows. My question is how do I anchor or set a browser out put size that the images will not move around? Thanks

Sorry hope this helps... http://www.hoppmanndesign.com/ as you can see if you minimize your web browser and change the size of the browser all pics and text get shifted as opposed to remaining static like most common websites.

Okay, see the problem:

well lets go over this. First advice then your answer.

Stop using separate flash objects. make one flash object that will do all of it. Then in the setting for publish compress to best quality. To many flash objects will cause long load time and people don't stick around when websites take to long to load.

Your fix:
The objects are moving due to the fact there is nothing to keep them in place. Two solutions:

1. Use a table and place the objects in there. Set the width of the table to pixels not percent and place the sixe of the table width you would like.

2. Use CSS and place the objects in side a div and the use of a wrapper will be needed. There is a great Tutorial by Mike Crone that will explain the use of the wrapper and centering content.

Either way will fix the problem. I'm sure davidj or domedia will be along shortly with some more advice. Everyone does things a little different but for the most part I'm sure they will agree.

Good Luck.

How would you suggest inserting 5 flash buttons into Dreamweaver as 1 Flash Doc.? My other problem is solved but the image is not being seen within the table that I created.

I want to make it a little more clear. I can see everything fine now until I upload to the server. When opening on my c: drive I can see everything perfect. Uploading to server the 5 flash buttons disappear.
