    Post a link to your page so we can see the underlying code, please.  Tell us where you want to add the logo and what its filename is.

    To change the Flash, in the code, change this -

     

     

    <param name="movie" value="ads/dr_banner_oak.swf" />

     

    to this -

     

     

    <param name="movie" value="the_path_to_the_new_swf.swf" />

    and this -

     

      <!--[if !IE]>-->

          <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="ads/dr_banner_oak.swf" width="857" height="209">

            <!--<![endif]-->

     

    to this -

     

     

      <!--[if !IE]>-->

      <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="the_path_to_the_new_swf.swf" width="857" height="209">

      <!--<![endif]-->

     

     

    Depending on how large your image is, you might be able to do it as a background image to the nav container.  In the CSS, try changing this -

     

     

    #nav { padding-right: 75px; padding-top:100px; list-style: disc; text-align: right; }

     

    to this -

     

    #nav { padding-right: 75px; padding-top:100px; list-style: disc; text-align: right; background-image:url(path_to_logo_image); background-repeat:no-repeat; }

     

    Does that work?

    Open your Template.dwt file.

     

    replace all this:

     

    <object id="FlashID" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="857" height="209">

          <param name="movie" value="ads/dr_banner_oak.swf" />

          <param name="quality" value="high" />

          <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />

          <param name="swfversion" value="8.0.35.0" />

          <!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->

          <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />

          <!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->

          <!--[if !IE]>-->

          <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="ads/dr_banner_oak.swf" width="857" height="209">

            <!--<![endif]-->

            <param name="quality" value="high" />

            <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />

            <param name="swfversion" value="8.0.35.0" />

            <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />

            <!-- The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->

            <div>

              <h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>

              <p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.g if" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" width="112" height="33" /></a></p>

            </div>

            <!--[if !IE]>-->

          </object>

          <!--<![endif]-->

        </object>

     

    with your new images

     

    <img src="logo.jpg"><img src="new-banner,jpg">

     

    Save Template.  Update child pages.  Upload child pages and new images to server.

    When you saved the Template.dwt file, what happened? 

    Did DW ask if you want to update child pages?   Did you get any error messages?

     

    Can you show us the Template and a child page made from that Template?
