Dreamweaver 8 eats up flash anims

  1. Hi, I have been using Dreamweaver MX for some times now and I recently have upgraded to version 8. As I keep editing my site and uploading new versions of pages, flash anims, like rollover butons and so on are just vanishing from the pages on the host. the weird thing is that they are visible in Dreamweaver while I am editing and even visible in site preview mode. Is any body having that issue?

    It just sounds like the files needed to support the flash animations aren't uploaded to the host.

    you need the whole swf script to load in html
    if using php or some other scripting
    you need a swf server addon setup to migrate
    go to macromedia site should be some dwnlds there for free server apps

    the file may need to be executable by user check permissions chmod

    how do you connect to the testing server
    I have noticed that V8 now shows images where MX images where broken
    even when I am not connected to site
    check out the ftp protocal check passive transfer box
    not sure but DW may not be the issue just coincidence
    post results of the change back to mx
    I have found after an hr or so with V8 my whole system slows dwn
    maybe theres a update I will check for that
    just dwnld updates will be testing out today
