I used flash to build my website then built a page in dreamweaver and uploaded it (both the html and the swf) but no one can see it on my site including me, Am I doing something wrong? :tazz:

Can you possibly gives us a link to the page in question?

Inside dreamweaver, when you insert the SWF, can you click on properties to see it?
Maybe it takes a long time to load, so it's just a blank screen?
When you imbed the SWF file, you will need to save that page as an index.htm page and try that, do not use the actual Flash created html page, just to see what happens.


I know these questions may seem obvious, but you never know!

go to this page and you may see why:

http://www.chaoticso..... Soldiers.swf


I don't think your host allows the size of your flash file.
A good way to test is to create an html page with a sample falsh file, and see if you can view it, if you can, then it's a limitation by your host.

what is the total size of your file?

lastly, you may want to NOT out any spaces in between your naming conventions

the %20 is a space, try using an _ instead..... this won't fix your issue, just good practice.

Find out from your host what your allowed to use/upload in size.
