View Full Version : SWFs won't link when live

12-22-2005, 03:23 PM
I am having some trouble getting my site to link up correctly. When I test my movie locally, everything links and the SWFs load seamlessly. Once I upload all of the SWF files, some of the SWFs do not load when the button instance that calls them is pressed.

I have tried to unload everything, publish new SWFs, and load it all back up thinking that somewhere along the line something caused a hiccup, but to no avail.

My site is http://www.prenticedesign.com

If you go into the portfolio section, and go into B2B Communications, you will see a slideshow, and you click on any of the images to enlarge. This is where somehow my SWFs became unlinked or something, because only one of them actually enlarges as it is supposed to.

I have also thought that it might be a load delay on those SWFs, but I have sat there and waited a long time, and they never pop up.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Are they all in the same path on your server?

it requires a path.... make sure your files are targeted correctly. An easy way is to put all your swf files into a folder (let's name it TEST) and then list the path....folder.....filename.swf.


It should find your files there when published.

I found the problem, but clops found the solution, seems a surprisingly large number of people get caught up on this.
