Flash SWFs not playing

Thread began 6/02/2010 2:47 pm by mrobben375515 | Last modified 6/02/2010 6:20 pm by mrobben375515 | 818 views | 3 replies |


Flash SWFs not playing

This might be something you can't help me with, but all of the swfs on my website aren't working. I'm guessing something happened in editing the template. In firefox, the area where the swfs are playing is just white and in IE the swf plays but is really small. I've attached the template file as well as one of the pages with the problem. The url is photobooks.php. All the other sites I've made using the PS templates and WA extensions play swfs just fine, so I have no idea what is the issue.

data path.

i changed the path of the flash file with firebug to

school_promo2.swf and it appears in FF

--oops, sorry, it didn't, it was just the content below moving up.

using firebug, I can get the flash animation to work if I disable the width: auto; property of the html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, form selector of common.css

change that to:
html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, form {
margin: 0;
border: 0;
outline: 0;
padding: 0px;
/*width: auto;*/

to comment out the width: auto property.
