    swfs not displaying in IE, using SWFObject2

    treehuggerinny Level 1



      I have a site I did a couple years ago, and have had to open it up, and now none of the SWFs display in IE. In my template I deleted my old Flash nav and reinserted it (insert/media/swf) and then I got a white box where the navigation should be.


      I've tried going to the Google site and got sample code for SWFObject2, I uploaded the swfobject.js and expressinstall.swf to the site's root directory, but I still get a white box in IE. It works fine in Firefox and Chrome.


      What am I doing wrong?


      I really appreciate your help.


      Take a look at this page: http://stagerightorg.com/resources/articles2.aspx
