    PROBLEM INSERTING FLASH Link to this post

    Hello all,

    I've imported my Flash assets ok but the insert flash button does not work.

    I have noticed many posts regarding this problem and haven't seemed to have cracked it.

    I'm using SS v3.6 and I'm running it locally using MAMP.

    Could someone please explain why this feature is not working?

    Thanks

    Hi nolyup

    Can you be more descriptive in what are you trying to do? Are you using special module?

    What I'm guessing is that you are inserting flash code to the page content. Most likely using TinyMCE. And that might be first issue. TinyMCE validates the code and sometimes does not let other JS / Embed codes through.
    Other one might be missing JS files if you are using more sophisticated JS solution. Make sure you have those in template.
    If you actually do have that flash in page, than there might be issue in paths inside of the flash. Relative vs. Absolute is a big difference. You are running from localhost and therefore /path/page absolute path in flash should do. If you have http://localhost:81/~macuser/path/page you'll need to use the whole thing.

    That's what I'm guessing...

    Thanks Blaza,

    My flash knowledge is limited. I however found this link which helped me understand and implement my swf file.

    Cheers
