    Hey Guys,

    I am totally stupefied. I tried embedding a flash file into a joomla website where you can input custom html. The Flash file worked for a long time on IE/Mozilla/Safari. Now it works only in Safari and Mozilla. I must have accidentally changed something.

    In IE8 I got the image which you can find attached to this post. The swf doesn't display. What does this generally mean? (See image)

    Kind regards,

    IE i believe prefers the embed tag for flash objects. Did you remove that section in your flash code? From that screenshot it seems like it's not finding your swf file.

    @manueld - thanks for the reply. Here is the code:

    <a href="#">
    <object width="728" height="90">
    <param name="movie" value="http://jemaghetzeggen.nl/main3/images/banners/anton.swf">
    <embed src="http://jemaghetzeggen.nl/main3/images/banners/anton.swf" width="728" height="90"  wmode="transparent">
