01-19-2007, 05:48 AM
I had created a website using flash 2004 mx and dreamweaver 2004 mx. Site worked fine. When I upgraded to studio 8 and posted the site, I couldn't see any of my flash files. Macromedia informed me there was a fix with the flash 8 player and that I needed to add this line to every dreamweaver page with flash in it:


function openNewWindow(URLtoOpen, windowName, windowFeatures) {

newWindow=window.open(URLtoOpen, windowName, windowFeatures);



However, they didn't specify where it goes in the html code. I'm pretty much of a novice in html.
Can anyone tell me where to insert this on each page?
Also, does this script have to be in ALL new dreamweaver8 pages I create that contain flash or just the ones that I originally created in 2004 MX?

Thank you.

The JS you posted, other than beeing poorly formatted, is totally useless in your case.
That script just opens a new window (a Pop-Up), when the openNewWindow() function is called.

It is also useless, as you can see, because there is a built-in method that is exactly the same...

Anyway you should post a link to one of your site pages so it can be looked at.
There could be many things preventing your project from working.
