    Flash Buttons in Dreamweaver

    EBDelos Level 1
      Hey Everyone

      So i have these Flash buttons on my website(which is done in Dreamweaver), and when i go to 'test' the site... the buttons will work when the page first loads(Home)... but if i go to click on a link, lets say "Contact", the buttons aren't there anymore! And if i go back to "Home" they arent there either!!

      Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions to this problem?!

      Thanxs much in advance!!

          Sounds like you need to add the HTML (the OBJECT - </OBJECT> tage) for all
          the buttons to all your pages unless you placed the Flash button in a
          template page that and then updated all the pages depending on it.

              Do you have the Flash buttons on all web pages was my point. In other words,
              did you have the same Flash buttons on the Contact page?
              >>Can someone take a look at my code and see whats wrong with it?
              /intro_buttons.swf

              Is the intro_buttons.swf in the web site root folder -- what / means? On the
              local drive the / could mean the root folder of the computer if you are not
              testing under http://.
