View Full Version : Flash not working on website...

08-27-2010, 09:57 PM
I have probably missed something simple here as I am not experienced in working with webpages. Here is my problem. I am trying to insert a swf file into my home page to act as a flash intro. I can view the flash file fine while I am in dreamweaver and when I preview it in the browser but it doesn't work if you go straight to my website... I tried to attach my index.html from my public_html folder but it said invalid file. Has anyone else had any experience with these problems? let me know if you need additional information.

weirdest thing.... i had removed it and added the pic just to make sure that I could add something to the site... I just put the swf file back in under the pic and it appears to be working now... I don't understand it lol but thanks for you help... i'll let you know if I have anymore problems!

I do have one other thing you might be able to help me with. In dreamweaver I have unchecked the loop box for the swf file but it still continues to loops on the site. Is that a problem I need to fix in Flash?

yes it sounds like a flash issue
