Hi All,

Here is the link to my site... What i want to happen is that I have an image of the flash file with hotspots and want this to sit in place of the Flash file if the user doesn't have the correct version of Flash. Could someone please have a look and tell me if I have set it up correctly?

Thanks,
Tom

I've got flash... works fine. Don't have a browser to test no flash in at the moment, sorry.

A friend of mine helped me do the same thing... I've got that script working on my site... might be able to get it for you... but... kinda busy.... so lemme know if you need it and i'll see what I can do.

"really good script"
well... my friend is pretty good with this stuff, and does some of it professionally... so... I'd assume it works well. From what I've seen on various systems, it does.

Anyway... it's based on redirect, but you can use whatever you want, if you're into coding javascript.


Here's the page as is... it has no content on it... just a javascript that redirects to noflash/flash pages. That's it.
You could change those actions, or make it just that if no flash, it redirects. Or whatever.

See if this helps.

It's pretty complex, but you don't really need to change much of it if you don't want to.


Only downside... sometimes the back button is weird... but seems to work ok generally.


For starters, just change the links at the bottom.
