Greetings: Hello, and thanks very much in advance for any help. On a scale of ten, I come in at a solid 3.5 with regard to experience with web design - but I really need this job, so I'm trying to learn as fast as I can.
Intro: I've inherited a website that has an easily defined problem on the home page, but I am really stuck for the solution.
Problem description: There is a file: homepage.swf , that contains a simple three-part slide show, which simply loops unless clicked on a particular slide; the user then is taken to an appropriate page. The content works perfectly in some browsers when viewed using the full www. URL, but will not do so when omitting the www. Here are the current functionality results:
Chrome 16.0.9: www. OK [no www] no
FF 3.6.26: www. OK [no www] no
IE8: www. no [no www] no
Safari 5.0: www. no [no www] no
What I've tried / looked at:
- Changing all content in the file to have full [http://www.] paths
- Making sure that the files called by the page are in the correct directories or subdirectories
- A fresh import of the swf file via Dreamweaver, and re-publishing the page
It isn't able to find that .xml file and hence, is returning a 404 page.
General notice: from now on, I would like to ask everyone to put [AS2] or [AS3] (corresponding to the version of actionscript you are using on your project) in front of their post titles when the question is actionscript related! Please help us help you faster. Thank you.
