Flash (swf) link doesn't work in some browsers
Flash (swf) link doesn't work in Firefox

 6:29 pm on Aug 9, 2006 (gmt 0)
I've created a silly little flash file (swf) using Photoshop. I thought it was a better alternative to an animated gif. It functions as an ad/link to another page. The link works fine in IE and Safari but doesn't work at all in Firefox or Camino. What's wrong here? Am I missing something?

Here's the code:
<a href="newpage.html"><embed src="flashfile.swf" alt="flashfile" title="flashfile" height="120" width="120"></a>

flash requires two tags to work in all browsers. you are only using the OBJECT tag you also need the EMBED tag. Google EMBED TAG + Flash and you should get the info, Alternatively you can create a flash movie in MM Flash and press Publish and it will create the necessary HTML for you.

ksc....if you get the grey border around your flash object, youll need to use the flashObj to 'embed' the file in your page.....then wrap the 'div' tag containing the flashObj in a 'a' tag and you should be good.
