Exclamation Flash Publishing Issue

Hello, I am attempting to publish a flash based "image viewer" in Dreamweaver. I have filled out all of the option fields properly, and it works fine when its displayed in a browser. Yet, when I attempt to publish it, the two image viewers (one on the home page and one on the portfolio page) I use on my site (http://www.chaseguttman.com) do not show up at all. At earlier points when I made it work, I also have a rollover problem. If my mouse rolls over the image viewer, the rollover goes off on the banner above the viewer. I can use all the help you guys can provide. Thanks so much.

Do a search for file:/// in your source and you'll come up with stuff link this:

file:///Macintosh HD/Users/bbcaweb/Documents/Slideshow Final

Those are links to files on your hard drive that are not available on the web. It's usually the result of not defining your site correctly.

So how do I define it so the components of the site are available on the web? Thanks.

The files those links point to need to be within your website and uploaded with it. If you put the file in your local folder and then make the links they should work.

By local folder, do you mean root folder? And if the files are placed within the website and then published (like I did), should it work?

By local folder I meant what Dreamweaver calls the local root folder (or the local site folder in CS5) in the site definition.

If its in a sub-folder of my "root folder," (like it is now), shouldn't it work? Thanks.

A sub folder is fine.

However you still have a problem with this link:

<script src="file:///Macintosh HD/Users/bbcaweb/Desktop/Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

I'm not sure about other issues since I'm not familiar with your specific swf. It could be that the image links need to be relative to the location of the swf file rather than the page it appears on.

Can you put that in other words. Im a little confused. I don't know how to make the file upload with my website (because I thought thats what I have been doing). Do you have any suggestion? Would sending my swf file or providing more information help? Also, while I'm here a simple question (I think), how do you remove tables while keeping everything you placed in the tables the same? And is the tag inspector the only way to help tag things for SEO? Thanks so much with the help your providing.

The issue with the file is that it is pointing at your personal Mac hard drive. You need to look at file paths and how to make them relative to a website root folder.

If you remove tables they'll need to be replaced with divs and positioned using CSS.
