:confused: I almost have this script figured out. I got it off your site at the address below:

http://javascript.internet.com/miscellaneous/fly.html

I made sure the path was correct for the ON/OFF buttons. I am not sure how to make the actual fly show up. Obviously the path is wrong. All I see is a box with a red X through it , moving across the. My scrollbar is jumping up and down too! What part of the code do I need to change to make the fly show up? All my files are in the same folder with my index page.

I will appreciate any help!

My own site address is:

www.home.bellsouth.net/p/pwp-cybertek

If you want to see any code, you will need to right click on my page, to look at it. I'm just practicing, so there isn't much code.


I have this part pasted into the BODY:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="fly.js">
<!-- This script and many more are available free online at -->
<!-- The JavaScript Source!! http://javascript.internet.com -->
</script>

This part is placed in a "fly.js" notepad:

:o I am sorry for placing my Dynamic Drive question here. I broke a rule. I am new at this. I didn't see the warning until it was too late!
