    Hello,

    I have a client which has a non wordpress website. I have transferred their website to a wordpress layout with some minor issues I have yet to fix as far as alignment goes. but I am having problems with flash. They have 3 flash video's on their page that MUST be there on the wordpress version. Their website currently is prestigecabinetsva.com. The site conversion is located at http://www.cloudleasing.com/prestige/. I am currently using the Kimili Flash Embed. on the index page I am using

    <?PHP if(is_front_page()) {
    		query_posts('id=6');
    		while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    		    				the_content();
    					endwhile;
    		wp_reset_query();
    	} ?>
    to display the flash video where it needs to be. I am not able to display the flash video. I am also experiencing problems with the MouseOver image swaps that was generated by dreamweaver.

    Is there a way to get flash to display without the need for plugins? using <object> tags?

    Using Firebug I notice that a few JS functions are 'not defined' (AC_FL_RunContent and MM_preloadImages). I believe it is because this file is not included in your head (taken from the current site).
    <script src="../../AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    Ok I think I see whats going on here. its setting the cabinets.swf to http://www.cloudleasing.com/prestige/cabinets.swf this actually needs to use the <?PHP echo bloginfo('template_directory'). " "; ?> to get the path of the cabinets... it is generating the object code as well

    Ok I got it to display the flash video but it is not playing the video.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--//--><![CDATA[//><!--
    AC_FL_RunContent(
    'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,19,0',
    'width','148',
    'height','249',
    'src','http://www.cloudleasing.com/prestige/wp-content/themes/prestige/cabinets',
    'loop','false',
    'quality','high',
    'pluginspage','http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer',
    'movie','http://www.cloudleasing.com/prestige/wp-content/themes/prestige/cabinets'
    ); //end AC code //--><!]]
    </script>

    displays the <object>

    <object codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,19,0" width="148" height="249" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"><param name="movie" value="http://www.cloudleasing.com/prestige/wp-content/themes/prestige/cabinets.swf"> <param name="loop" value="false"> <param name="quality" value="high"> <embed width="148" height="249" src="http://www.cloudleasing.com/prestige/wp-content/themes/prestige/cabinets.swf" loop="false" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></object>

    I highly recommend Firebog for firefox, you will be able to debug much easier. Here are the errors it is throwing regarding the flash movie:

    Uncaught ReferenceError: MM_preloadimages is not defined /prestige/:69

    Right, but I see the debug is cloudleasing.com/prestige this would be invalid as it would need to be cloudleasing.com/prestige/wp-content/themes/prestige/ would be the path I need. This I dont know where to change as I dont know where this is loading from. the AC_RunActive I do not see anything in there to return the path

    I am still not able to figure this out! I have figured out where images1.xml and images2.xml these brought to my attention by bythegram and was throwing a 404 in the root folder of the presige so I moved the images1/2.xml to the root folder removed the path that was in the xml to a folder that did not exist and moved all the images to the root.

    I still cannot get it to load images.
