View Full Version : PHP Mail form and Loadmovie

03-19-2003, 02:51 PM
I just went through the tutorial "Send Mail Contact Form (PHP and Flash)"

I created a movie based on this (call it contact.swf), and uploaded it, along with the php3 file, and it all worked correctly when I tested it as a stand-alone.

However, when I use loadmovie to bring that swf into my base movie (base.swf), it no longer works.

I connected to the contact.swf directly (by typing in the address of the .swf itself), and it works fine on it's own.

Is there anything extra I need when trying to use this form with a loadmovie command? I'm loading it into an empty movie clip.

If your movie works fine as a standalone, yet it doesn't work when loaded into another movie... Then it is the path problem... Check the path within your movie file... ;)

Would I have to use absolute path? My movies and the php3 file are all in the same folder, so I just have it as "mail.php3". I assumed since they were in the same place, it wouldn't matter.

I'll try an absolute path.
