I have a FlashSlider slideshow running on my website Jackson's Place Dog Daycare but it only works in IE. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get it to translate to other browsers like FireFox and such????

Any help would be much appreciated!!! biggrin.gif

to cover all your bases I'd recommend putting an EMBED tag inside your OBJECT tag.

HTML
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000" id="ShockwaveFlash1" width="400" height="300" align="left">
<param name="_cx" value="10425">
<param name="_cy" value="7938">
<param name="FlashVars" value>
<param name="Movie" ref value="http://www.houstondogdaycare.com/flash/Slideshow.swf" valuetype="ref">
<param name="Src" ref value="http://www.houstondogdaycare.com/flash/Slideshow.swf" valuetype="ref">
<param name="WMode" value="Window">
<param name="Play" value="-1">
<param name="Loop" value="-1">
<param name="Quality" value="High">
<param name="SAlign" value>
<param name="Menu" value="0">
<param name="Base" value>
<param name="AllowScriptAccess" value="All">
<param name="Scale" value="ShowAll">
<param name="DeviceFont" value="0">
<param name="EmbedMovie" value="-1">
<param name="BGColor" value>
<param name="SWRemote" value>
<param name="MovieData" value>
<param name="SeamlessTabbing" value="1">
<param name="Profile" value="0">
<param name="ProfileAddress" value>
<param name="ProfilePort" value="0">
<embed
src
="http://www.houstondogdaycare.com/flash/Slideshow.sw"
width="xx" height="xx"
autoplay="TRUE">
</embed>
</object>


You'll have to add the values to the embed tag that are appropriate. You have so many in the OBJECT tag that I don't recognize . . . you could probably drop a lot of them . . . especially the ones with no value.

Normally, Flash can output the necessary HTML code. IIRC, it's somewhere in the File menu.
Check the documentation.

I'm a little confused as to what you mean. Sorry! I start out with a program and I upload all the files to my website and insert the slideshow where I want it. Other than that I am clueless.

Sorry if I am asking to much, but is there anyway to walk me through it??

How do you generate the html code for the webpage? It looks like you're using FrontPage.
You need to modify the part where the flash movie is inserted.

Yes so open the html and fix the OBJECT section as I indicated in an earlier post . . . that's the part that displays your flash slideshow.
CHANGE THIS
HTML
<SPAN CLASS="title">Let them play at Jackson's Place                  <BR>

Well, I copied and pasted and it didn't fix it. Is there a better program that I can create a slideshow just like this one that works better with all browsers? Also, it has to be easy to use.

You're best off to re-open the .fla file in Flash and have Flash generate the appropriate HTML.

In Adobe's Knowledge Base, I found this: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase....cfm?id=tn_4150
