I am designing a website in dreamweaver. I designed a banner and navigation bar in flash. (CS3)
My problem is that while the banner and nav bar work fine when previewed in flash, once I put them into dreamweaver and preview the site in my broswer the links do not work and I get this message:
For the time being the links go to google dot com. It doesnt seem to be a browser issue or an issue with my flash player settings.
Googling the problem gave me this: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/links-swf-files-dont-function.h tml
Basically, it is telling me I need to "allowscriptaccess = always" or tell the "navigateToURL to use "_blank" as the target" in the .swf. However, I would like the link to open on the same window/tab in the browser so I would prefer not doing it the "_blank" way.
I am more of a designer and new to coding in html and actionscript.
I have tried the method described in the Adobe help site but I must be doing it wrong.
Any help is appreciated!
Did you try following thru with clicking the settings button in that error message panel and adjust the settings to allow access for local content in the folder identified?
If you want to open the linked content in the same window, then you need to use "_self" instead of "_blank"
Yes, I tried. No avail.
There must be an alternate way of getting the links. Perhaps some code I can plug into AS3 or html on the website that allows it to operate?
Perhaps I am using "allowscriptaccess" wrong? Any idea how it should be implemented?
i) Click Always allow
ii) Click "Add location" in the drop down list
iii) add your location of your swf
iv) refresh the window to confirm your path is added below list box
restart the browser and run the file.
This is the Flash Player Security Warning that gets thrown when a local content is trying to communicate with the Internet. This is being done to protect you from potentially harmful content that could be used to send sensitive information stored on your computer or local network to locations on the Internet. However you can allow such contents to communicate with the Internet by trusting your local file/application and add the local file(s)/file location(s) to the Flash Player Settings Manager trusted list.
Please follow the detailed instructions posted at http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/communicate-internet-flash-cont ent.html to add your local content(s) to the list of trusted files and you may also want to set to 'Always allow' to avoid the warning once for all.
