The e-commerce.

embedding a shockwave file in the column_left.php


Recommended Posts

I am using a shockwave animated menu in the left column. When you click on a link, Internet Explorer 6.0 opens the link in two NEW windows. I have used flash (shockwave) a lot and I have never seen this before. I am using the latest snapshot of OS commerce. You can see this phenomenon at: www.outbackpaintball.com. Please help! I am trying to go live soon. I pasted the contents of my column_left.php below.



<!-- URL's used in the movie-->

<A HREF=rental.php></A>

<A HREF=team.php></A>

<A HREF=about.php></A>

<A HREF=contact.php></A>

<A HREF=indcx.php></A>

<A HREF=contact_us.php></A>

<A HREF=default.php></A>

<!-- text used in the movie-->

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"



<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="images/layout/menu/menu.swf">

< PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=best>

<PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#666666>

<EMBED src="images/layout/menu/menu.swf" quality=best bgcolor=#666666 WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=200 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></EMBED>

I'm relatively new to Flash, but I think your Actionscript for your links should be:

getURL ("rental.php", "_self");

And maybe if the cart contents don't get passed along:

getURL ("rental.php", "_self" "GET");


That is done in the Actions Panel when you have selected your link the 2 drop down menus (in Flash MX)

Hope this helps :) and let us know :P
