UBER Newbie, so please bear with me...thanks.
(Referencing website www.ctfalliance.org)
I needed to change a footer, which is a flash file. current one reads: Contact Us (and) Sitemap. Needed to change Sitemap to Members Section.
Found the fla and made the changes. The preview looks like it's pretty much the same as before, having replaced Sitemap with Members Section (lost some color during mouse hover, but can live with that) and so I hit Publlish.
Now I have the html file, which opens in Dreamweaver, but I don't know what to do next to replace the current footer.swf with the revised one.
I don't know what to do with this html file. I haven't seen it in the site's files before, i.e., footer.html so not sure if I should "put" it on the site or not.
Or do I just "put" the revised footer.swf onto the site now?
BTW, I believe I also need to change the URL reference from the sitemap to the members section, which currently reads as:
So I think I should change it to read:
so.addVariable("membersURL", "members.ctfalliance.org"); which i'm hoping will take the user to our secure page for members only when they hit the "Members Section" on the footer.
Can someone tell me what to do next, please? (the guy i've had to help me before isn't available; he's the one that built it originally and has been helpful but he must be busy and didn't offer to make the revisions for me...ARGH).
don't edit your html file. just upload footer.swf to your server's images directory. clear your browser cache and test.
Thank you. that was easy. i guess i was overthinking.
Question: why would the hover feature we used to have not be there any longer? That is, it's now just a glowing white light, but used to be that when one hovered her mouse over the text, it would change color to a orange scheme consistent with our design scheme. May I highjack this post a bit and ask this question?
you probably failed to assign the same instance name that was used in the rollover or, if you have a really bad template, code was attached to the object itself.
p.s. please mark helpful/correct responses, if there are any.
