Got a Flash tour - works in IE, not in Firefox - any suggestions. Both are up to date with Flash etc:
Thanks in advance
I looked with IE 6 and Flash player 9.x and it works.
For Foxfire browser folks..you might need to return to Foxfires web site and see if they have any add-on's that will make FF work for you. I did download Flash player 9 for Firefox from Adobe and I get the loading progress bar.. but it stops at 50% and says it waiting for your server to do something.
Thats the problem, it works in IE & hangs up at approx 50% loaded in FF..
Anyone else had this problem? Also, can anyone using a Mac try the Flash tour for me - I dont have access to one & would like to know if it works.
So in order to get the tour to work in FF all files need to be in lowercase & jpg instead of jpe?
The lowercase thing really bugs me - not as much as having to use underscore between 2 word file names - they look really tacky and unprofessional in the end product tour.
Thanks - I think I will just say "Flash version of tour for Internet Explorer only"
Eagle, again, thanks for the reply - have a good one.
I had to update flash player in order to view my Flash based tour in FF. Having done this, it runs fine and without having to do the lower case thing and I am also operating on a linux server.
With your project, I also find that it doesn't get past the loading bar in FF
Don't worry about the lower case and underscore thing. If it works for me, it should work for you and in any case, it would not matter in the case of your user interface. You can have your text box items in normal text while your underlying file names (not visible to the site visitor) are all in lower case with underscores.
Try going through all your pre-publish settings.
I found with TW2, that when I had a problem with the output, sometimes reloading TW and republishing the tour resolved it.
When nothing else works, I build a light version of what I am trying to do with only one or two images but I build it in stages and publish and test it as I add new features until I get to the point where it breaks down.
This is probably not very helpful but I have a feeling that this is something very simpple like an addressing issue.
I thought Tourweaver plug in "auto detection" for Flash should have pointed you to Adobe's website to download current version. Did redirection to Flash update page not work for you??
I just got some feedback from my client with same issue on Vista - Loading Bar stops at 50% like its looking for something.... and not finding it.
