Hi guys,
wasnt too sure where to ask this one, sorry if its in the wrong section.

I have a section on my site that loads up a text file and display the text in the box.
To get an idea what I am talking about check www. memory mentor .com all one word
Any how, this is the code in the text file

message1=test message 1!&date1=25 Apr 05&message2=test message 2&date2=25 Apr 05&message3=test message 3&link1=http://www.mydomain.com/test1.htm&link2=http://www.mmydomain.com/test2.htm&link3=http://www.mydomain.com/test3.htm&totalMessages=3

Now for some reason it displays the first message corectly, test message 1, including the link and the date, but the other two messages do not get displayed at all...
I have changed my domain name to mydomain.com

Can someone show me where I went wrond here please!!

thanks in advance

Try writing out to the browser what is actually send to your flash file...it's impossible to see for us this way...could also be a problem within your flash file.

I looked at that...you don't need to display it for me...i was trying to help you find the solution...if you can output the querystring you are feeding into flash, into the webbrowser, you could see if the call is correct. If it is properly displayed in your browser, you know that the problem originates in your flash file, not in the querystring...

i think i am making this more complicated than need be.

The text file that is called to the flash player used to work fine. that is three links would scroll and i could click on a link and it would take me to where i want to go.

So I decided to edit the text around a bit.
the text file was changed around and only the first link will work. the other two dont scroll in the flash player on the front page.

I hope I am not confusing you here!!!

So it is a matter of the wording I have in my text file.

message1=test message 1!&date1=25 Apr 05&message2=test message 2&date2=25 Apr 05&message3=test message 3&link1=http://www.mydomain.com/test1.htm&link2=http://www.mmydomain.com/test2.htm&link3=http://www.mydomain.com/test3.htm&totalMessages=3


Message 1 displays correctly, and the link to message 1 too. but the other 2 do not...


thanks in advance

So what was the version that DID work? Most of the times it's better to check back so you can reproduce the fact that DID work...work your way up step by step to recreate where it goes wrong...
