    Hello,
    I'm having problems viewing my slideshow on my site. Although I can see my forward and back arrows, I cannot see my pictures. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I put all my files in one folder and uploaded to my themes folder. I have uploaded my jpg's and the swf file manually to my library.

    Here is the code in my footer, which I mainly generated in DW:

    <script src="Scripts/swfobject_modified.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <div id="footer">
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="1000" height="250" id="FlashID" title="slideshow">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.ellishollownurseryschool.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/externalgallery.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
    <!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->
    <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
    <!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->
    <!--[if !IE]>-->
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.ellishollownurseryschool.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/externalgallery.swf" width="1000" height="250">
    <!--<![endif]-->
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
    <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
    <!-- The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->
    <div>
    <h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>
    <p><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" width="112" height="33" /></p>
    </div>
    <!--[if !IE]>-->
    </object>
    <!--<![endif]-->
    </object>
    <p>© <?php echo date("Y")?> <!-- Please leave this line intact --><?php if (is_home()) : ?><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> | Theme Blass by 1000ff <?php else : ?>Theme Blass by 1000ff<?php endif; ?> | Powered by WordPress | Graphics and theme customization by Elaine Griffin Designs</p>

    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    swfobject.registerObject("FlashID");
    //-->
    </script>

    Here is a link to the site:

    Here is a link to the slideshow, which is working just fine:
    http://www.ellishollownurseryschool.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/externalgallery.swf

    I know I have some validation errors, but I can't see how those errors are causing this.
    Thanks in advance!

    Try replacing all your object div with this code (altered to suit your dimensions and source URL of course.

    <OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"
    WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240" id="MyMovieName">
    <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="MyFlashMovie.swf">
    <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
    <EMBED src="MyFlashMovie.swf" quality=high WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240"
    NAME="MyMovieName" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"
    PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
    </EMBED>
    </OBJECT>

    Thanks, lockettpots, but that didn't work either!
    I also tried embedding using Kimili Flash Embed and this is the page I got:

    I'm kind of beyond being over this! I'm ready to give up!
