    Issues adding Edge Animate file to HTML document

    todd_rohrer Level 1



      I am new to Edge Animate, and somewhat new to HTML/CSS/JavaScript.  I am using a trial version of Edge Animate to see if my company would benefit from its use.  I also downloaded the trial of Dreamweaver CC, since I am currently on Dreamweaver CS6.


      I got my animation to function perfectly in Edge, but I am experiencing issues when adding it to my web page.  I added the OAM file per Adobe's instructions into my layout.  My issues are as follows:


      • Nothing loads on Chrome.  I changed my background for the insertion point to a different color, and that is all that displays.  No poster image, no whitespace, nothing.  It's like it doesn't exist.
      • On IE10, that div area is filled with the "Internet Explorer could not load" page.
      • On Firefox, the animation loads and plays, but none of my click events or hover elements register.


      I didn't see anything in the import instructions that said anything about adding information into the <head> element.  Was I supposed to add something there?


      (also, this is my first time posting, so if i'm not adding the code correctly, I apologize)

          Can you embed content using the below steps and see if your content plays:


          1. Publish from Edge Animate. (This creates the necessary files to run the animation. Also, the code referenced in Step 2 and 3 below will be included in the .html file that Animate creates inside the publish/web folder, which you can just copy/paste.)

          2. Add a <div> to the page that has the ID of Stage and the correct class name for your stage (i.e. the "Composition ID" for your project in Animate).
            For example: 
            <div id="Stage" class="EDGE-1655086"></div>

          3. Include the Preload .js file and the default style in your page's header, within Edge Runtime HTML comments.
            For example: 
            <!--Adobe Edge Runtime-->
            <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="test-1655086_edgePreload.js"></script>
            .edgeLoad-EDGE-1655086 { display:none; }
            <!--Adobe Edge Runtime End-->

          4. Make sure to upload all of the include files to your server in the appropriate relative locations. This includes the _edge.js files, _edgeActions.js file, _edgePreload.js file, the edge_includes folder and its contents, any other files/folders created inside the "publish/web" folder when you publish from Edge Animate (e.g. "images" folder, etc.).


          With OAM method ,do you see any errors in browser console in chrome when content does not play?

            No errors in Chrome with the .oam, just the empty <aside> area.

            Adding the <div> and Script/Styles at the head worked perfectly in IE, but, though it was visible on Firefox and Chrome, it still wasn't interactive.


            Any ideas on why that may be?  Could it just be my browser settings, or do those browsers render click events and timeline control differently?

              Can you share your files?

              I will try to figure it out.

                Please see the attached dropbox link:




                I am hoping all of the src links still work after the archive.
