    Adding .swf countdown timer Link to this post

    I'm trying to add a .swf countdown timer to one of page templates. It calls an xml file located in the same folder. For some reason, I can't get it load correctly. It works fine on a test.html page, so I know the countdown timer itself works, but I don't know how to get it to display on a php page.

    I've tried adding it into the <head> section of the page template, i've tried putting it into the Layout .ss file for that template, and I've tried putting in an Include .ss file. None of that has worked.

    The crazy thing, is if I actually browse to location of the .swf in a browser, it works perfectly. But trying to call it in a template doesn't work. What am I missing?

    Thanks for any help!

    Are you sure your template file is being rendered? Namely, if you insert some text in it, do you see it displayed when you go there with your browser?

    Have you tried putting ?flush=1 after the address to flush the template cache?

    Are you sure you are embedding it the correct way, and linking to it correctly. If you are using a browser that supports it, do you get any errors when the page is loaded. Such as file not found.
