[Resolved] Very weird flash / wordpress problem

  • Hello everyone,

    I just enabled mod rewrite / cleaner url’s on my wordpress page via the settings menu, however now that I have done so the flash rotator / banner at the top of my page has stopped working on the newly created mod rewritten pages?

    I tried to create a new page on the wordpress blog and it just says “Get the Flash Player to see this rotator.” so I don’t think it has happened to only old pages, but newly created pages / posts / mod rewritten url’s will experience the problem as well. On the main page of the site the rotator is working perfectly fine?

    So something has happened but I have absolutely no idea what 😕

    Your help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

  • here is the code for the flash rotator I am using if that is of any use, I am totally stuck here.

    <div id="container2">Get the Flash Player to see this rotator.</div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var s1 = new SWFObject("imagerotator.swf","rotator","770","300","7");
    s1.addParam("allowfullscreen","true");
    s1.addVariable("file","supra.xml");
    s1.addVariable("width","770");
    s1.addVariable("height","300");
    s1.addVariable("shownavigation","false");
    s1.addVariable("rotatetime","8");
    s1.addVariable("shuffle","true");
    s1.addVariable("showicons","false");
    s1.write("container2");
    </script>

    Okay I managed to fix it!!!

    I just moved all the items to a new /rotator/ directory and pointed each url in the code above to that. It was looking for an absolute reference for the .swf .xml and .js files above.

    Is the above code applicablwe for your rotator or for others also ?
