  • Why isn't my flash showing up?

    www.jeffmitch.com

    I can not figure out for the life of me why the .swf file isn't showing up!

    This is the simplest page there is...it is my under construction page!

    I have an HTML file with a <div> wrapper, with an attached style sheet.

    Inside the index.html file it calls for the flash file. All files are uploaded to the server and all paths are correct.

    It should appear above the "under construction" text.

    When I preview it on my local HD it works...but not on the server. Any ideas?

    by the way, here is the link to the animation.

    http://www.jeffmitch.com/flash/animatedlogo.swf

    it comes up in my browser, so it can't be a bad swf file on the server.

          hahaha...yes...

          I dunno why but I never use Dreamweaver to upload my files. I always do it manually with a separate FTP program. I guess I feel like I have more control over everything that way...anyone else do that who uses Dreamweaver?

              yeah, I would hand code it if I had everything 100% memorized and more time...

              I'm glad that 8 years ago when I first designing web pages that I had to learn how to hand code HTML. Of course, there has been a lot of changes in 8 years...

              But some other students in my classes only know how to drag and drop with Dreamweaver and have limited knowledge of what to change in the code if something goes wrong.

                yeah, I started back in the webs infancy. With that said; I kinda stink at css, so I tend to use alot of the old coding. Most of the stuff I do nowadays is all php because it offers so much flexability. I am also a strong believer in using sql databases... you can really automate so much by storing stuff aside thats frequently used and/or changed and calling it when needed.

                    that is what I really want to learn. PHP and MySQL. They were supposed to offer that class this upcoming semester and claimed they couldn't fill it, so I'm going to have to wait until next year...

                      jm, buy 2 books, well worth the $60 bucks or so:

                      Sams Teach Yourself PHP4 (or the newer version) In 24 Hours
                      and
                      Gilmore A Programmers Introduction to PHP 4.0

                      Those 2 books taught me everything I needed to know about php (and a little help from PHP's official site) and I run some pretty complex sites. Some of my past clients have wanted sites to do everything from wipe thier butts to clean the house and they do! (slightly exagerated)
