I'm going nuts here trying to figure out why I can't get this slide show I did to work. It's an XML slideshow in AS3. I have downloaded FLASHOTAKU components for a scroller and a slide show viewer, and then went to his website for a tutorial on how to create a slideshow. Everything is working fine. He supplied the code, how to put it together, and even has test files to compare your work to. I only have one problem, I can't get the flash movie to read the XML file, and/or the XML file to point to the images!
I think it might have something to do with my FTP site. I have tried to methods as far as showing the components the XML path. One, since all the folders will be in the same public folder on my FTP site (where all the HTML pages are) I point to it simply by saying "images.xml" and "thumbnails.xml". When I do that I get this error: "Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2035: URL Not Found."
The other way, I right click on the files on my FTP site and copy and paste the path. When I do that I get this error: "Error opening URL 'ftp://my ftp site.xml'
ERROR:The path of the xml file is not correct.
Any Idea what I could be doing wrong? or could try to fix this?
it seems I get an error from the page whenever I close it out (I have loaded it up to my website). I get a prompt to send a report or not- much like the prompt you get when the page is not responding.. However, it is responding, and when you go to another link or page from that page- everythign is normal- no error.
