Topic: Sometimes hear pix loading but dont see them

Hi - I have a few multi-galleries set up.
Im finding that one particular one will sometimes load properly
and other times I will hear the first auto loading gallery pix arriving but the interface does not appear - just a blank screen.

I think it makes a difference whether I am logged into my site or not.
The strange thing is that its only this particular viewer - so obviously I have stuffed up something in the fla file.
I tried back tracking a few versions and redoing the last modifications - and I somehow recreated the problem again.

Any ideas?
Anyone else hear them loading but no visuals?

Thanks
Dan V

Re: Sometimes hear pix loading but dont see them

Hi -
the URL is http://www.ezi10.com/programs/share/ind … ID=51&

It loads perfectly in FF.
Strange thing is when I am logged in as admin on the site everything works perfectly in IE8 too!

But when not logged in I just see a black page and hear the sound of pix downloading.

There were a lot of cross domain issues as I had another site hosting some of the files but Ive cleared all that up including the swfobject.js .

BTW when Ive finished setting this up I think it will be a good demo of using Tiltviewer as a shop interface.

Thanks - Dan V

Re: Sometimes hear pix loading but dont see them

There are several issues one of them is line 23 </SCRIPT><HTML><HEAD>, you shouldn't have anything before your <HTML>. Framesets are... and may be causing some of the complications, try fixing these errors and we will go from there.

Re: Sometimes hear pix loading but dont see them

Hi Miker - thanks for your response. I know the code is not compliant but its what I have to work with . The tech guys say the script above the head tag is meant to be there.

Anyway - after about 8 hours of debugging I finally found the problem.

It only affects IE8 and only when not logged into my site -
guess what - if there is no text on the page - only code - then nothing will display.
Well at least thats all I can figure as the same code that causes the problem -  with  "&#160" added on the end (or any other text) works fine.

I hear there are a few problems with IE8 and Flash10 so maybe this is another one of them.

Thanks again
