View Full Version : Trouble with flash buttons - Dreamweaver
02-22-2006, 06:28 AM
I have started using Dreamweaver 8 recently and updated my site with it. I have one problem: in the menu navigation bar on top of my pages, I am using the programme's flash buttons to link to other pages. In preview mode these work fine, but they don't work online. Where the buttons are supposed to be, there is a white void. I can't see what I am doing wrong. Any ideas to fix this? :confused: Thanks.

Make sure you have an up-to-date flash player (http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash). :) See if that fixes your problem. Also remember to ask other if they're having the same problem that you are. They might be seeing something different then you are.

I have the latest Flash Player installed. The flash buttons do work in preview mode while working with Dreamweaver. And I get the same thing on the three other computers in the house...
I found something on the Macromedia site about a problem where the flash buttons don't work in the preview mode but do work online. But I have the problem turned around.

Could it be something odd with those flash files? If I upload a flash module I have on another site to my Bluehost account and browse directly to it, I see it fine and dandy. If I go to (for example) http://www.textwriters.net/images/buttons/newspapers.swf I don't see anything (although I know it did find SOMETHING since I get the alt menu, but it's balnk white.

i had a similar problem.
which browser are you using?
sometimes when you get the latest flash playewr, some of my browser didnt update their settings, for a while my IE didnt update when i installed a newer flash player, resulting in some flash stuff to not show.
i'd suggest umm, when creatingf the swf telling it to use a lower level flash player.

I am using IE 6.0 sp2.
I think I'm one step futher now, although I have no idea what's wrong:
Apparently some of my images aren't uploaded. Whether I use Dreamweaver's uploading programme, Unlimited FTP or Bluehost's drag&drop FTP, they all say that the file is being uploaded but when it's done and I look in the root folder online, it says that the files are empty, i.e. filesize 0k :confused:
This concerns the .gif files and the .swf files. The .jpeg files upload fine. Help!
