Problems with flash - not opencart issue - if anyone is wishing to help
I am currently working on fashion boutique which will be based entirely on opencart but i stumbled into a bit strange problem.
I am runing wamp server on my second pc and i access it through ip adress.
I've constructed for myself xhtml + css layout of the webpage and currently I'm converting it step by step to be run by opencart.
Now when I wanted to place flash slideshow into opencart homepage no pictures are showing up.
But the slideshow works in my layout. And i've also noticed that flash object loads.
I'm suspecting it has something to do with paths in xml file but after 5 hours of changing and studying paths in it I simply lost any desire to carry on ... am I missing something? but what?
Ok so first info:
slideshow is well known over the net flash slideshow called slideshow_as2.swf with xml file simple but nice and does the job.
Flash parses information about paths and settings contained in .xml and then starts displaying pictures.
path to the template is:
flash is saved in the same directory and images.xml file is saved there too.
images are stored in
'shop/catalog/template/content/img directory and named bg1.jpg to bg9.jpg.
in the home.tpl i've placed flash object declaration pointing to swf file with path:
now in the xml file i've placed first obvious path like
then I load the shop and i see black square so i right click on it and i see
that flash object loaded but no pictures
then i do it again but with a full path to the image like:
shop/catalog/template/content/img/bg1.jpg and so on but no luck...
what can be wrong maybe xml file are very specific when it comes to paths or maybe it is some error in action script in slideshow?? personally i don;t now action script so it will be hard for me to look into this avenue any ideas?
