    Default only flash menu opens up

    Hi there,
    I hope someone out there can help as I am going crazy.

    I am a complete novice at web sites so it could be something very simple.

    I am using DW8.0.2 and I am trying to develop a simple site with some flash content. For now I have posted a test page on the web domain with two flash files 1 is a menu and the other is a an swf created in flash 8.

    When i preview locally in the browser from dreamweaver everything works both swf files show but as soon as i upload to the web page only the menu appears...

    the menu has been created in an external program and is linked to an xml file

    for the other swf file that doesnt load could the problem be related to the AC_runactiveContent.js file? I have uploaded this file to the site

    many thanks

    Mark

    It's almost impossible to know without having a look at the code used to link in the .swfs.

    I suspect there is an issue with the site structure. Are you using the same structure locally as on your web server? Are your file path's relative? Remember, the file paths (and any paths in the XML) should be relative to the page calling the flash, not the XML or flash movies itself.

    If that is all squared away, try using absolute paths.

    Thanks for the reply

    The local site and and web site are a mirror of a each other

    I have tried changing the links to absolute and still no success

    the URL where the test page is is http://www.2gobelow.com/index1.html

    the flash object in question is where the annoying white square is this reads from an xml file of which the code is here

    <gallery>
    <!-- The line below sets the path to the folder where the images are stored -->
    <setup path="http://www.2gobelow.com/Images/G_Home_page/"/>
    <!-- The following lines set the names of your images and thumbnails -->
    <item>
    <img>Logo.jpg</img>
    </item>
    </gallery>

    thankyou in anticipation of solving what is probably a simple problem
