I have a big problem - I decided to make a website using flash as I am good with photoshop and thought it would be fairly easy to construct in flash using tutorials. All went well except now the website is published, weird things happen. The homepage works fine but when you click on "portfolio" some of the buttons don't appear and when you try the buttons, some images don't appear. Occasionally some of the buttons take you to the wrong place also. When I test the movie in flash, everything works fine so I can't work it out. PLEASE HELP! Ps. I am a complete novice so advice will have to be spelt out in black and white.
Thanks in advance. Website is here:
www dot branadesign dot com
well I see a bunch of buttons and they are all working fine, do you have a screenshot of what you are experiencing to compare with my view?
Most of the times it happens when images are either too big or are pointing to a local path on your computer instead of the relative path.
This sometimes happens when I press the services button (doesn't go to services page and shows buttons down side when it shouldn't):
I have published the flash file as a SWF and assume all the images are embedded in the file. If you keep pressing buttons repeatedly, the website starts to work which makes me think they are all there but only work once the web browser has cached all the images. I have tried it in firefox and IE with similar effects.
