Hi!

Could someone give me a kind guiding hand please?

The problem I am having and I see a lot of people are, is my flash movies won't link in IE, but work fine in safari, firefox etc...

My default page opens ok but when I try to click on a link it just hangs looking for the page and nothing comes up on the screen.

This is the code form the default page which seems ok.

Welcome again mediafrenzymusic, from my reply in the other thread [webmasterworld.com]- give SWFObject a try.

What you've posted here is default "publish" html/code from Flash CS3. I've never been happy with the methods MM/Adobe is using to deploy Flash, and without investigating I would say it's probably something to do with that. Scrap the whole overbloated approach they are using and give SWFObject a try, it's accessible and easy to set up.
