    Insert Photoshop Web Gallery swf file into Dreamweaver

    Kizat727
      So i tried to take a shortcut, and created a flash photoshop web gallery and placed the "gallery.swf" file into my html file in Dreamweaver. However, it is showing a blank white screen (i'm guessing it can't find the images?) but when I view it on my hard drive, it is working fine, just not in dreamweaver or any browser, even after I upload to my server. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! I've also tried pasting the body html code from "index.htm" that photoshop creates, as well as move my image files to the root folder where the swf is, but that doesn't work either. I have my scripts in the same directory, and not in subfolders.

          Do your server error logs reveal any useful information such as 404
          errors?

          Do you have a link we can see?

            It is not showing any 404 errors that I can see. The page is coming up, just not showing the .swf file. It is acting like it isn't even on my page. However, when I preview in a browser while in Dreamweaver, a big white blank screen shows. I'll attached the "index.htm" file that photoshop created. I also have a couple xml files and js files, just let me know what you need to see to help me solve the issue. Thanks so much!

                That page is very different from the code you posted and I know nothing
                about Geoff Stearns' FlashObject code.

                For the above link, I see nothing in the source code that attempts to
                load a .swf file. However, it is linking to AC_RunActiveCon.js file in
                the wrong place:

                ----------------------------------------------------------
                GET /dyers/assets/flash/pages/AC_RunActiveContent.js HTTP/1.1
                Referer: http://www.micromediapubs2.com/dyers/portfolio.html
                HTTP/1.x 404 Not Found
                ----------------------------------------------------------

                The file is actually here:
                /dyers/Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js

                So if you actually do have a page in the dyers/ folder that links to a
                .swf file, just make sure the link to the .js file is correct.

                Most likely, change this:

                <script src="assets/flash/pages/AC_RunActiveContent.js"
                type="text/javascript"></script>

                to this:

                <script src="Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js"
                type="text/javascript"></script>
