Hi!

Most of the flash is showing, but I noticed some relative links to some of the flash files...
For example:

planet_logo.swf
victors_auto.swf
j&b_ripple.swf ----------> ( this should be changed to "j_b_ripple.swf" )
get_cartooned_animated2.swf

If you change all these links to include http://www.godvalinchiart.org/ you should be good to go...
For example:

change
planet_logo.swf
to
http://www.godvalinchiart.org/planet_logo.swf

Let me know if you need more help on this...
-Julian.

I think I might have messed things up even worst. Maybe i should have studied my html before I opened my store. All of that code drives me insane.

Don't worry, you'll get there :)

Why do you think you messed things up ?

I suggest you open the page in FrontPage and go into "Code" view.
Take a deap breath :) and start looking for your flash references.
Then simply insert your domain name before the filename, e.g.
<embed src="http://www.godvalinchiart.org/planet_logo.swf" ...

When you're finished editing the source code, first copy the code and upload it to your eBay store, then you can save the page in FrontPage...

I may have to finish this in the morning. I thought I just did everything you said but it still wont show up.

What I'll do is edit the code for you and upload it as a txt file. Then all you need to do is copy and paste the code.
May take me a while, but should have it done by tomorrow morning...

If you want then, you can compare the code to see what I've changed...

Ok, I hope this helps...

I've enclosed all flash movies with comments like this:

<!-- FLASH MOVIE -->
code here...
<!-- END FLASH -->

If you need to change the flash movie, just go into the code and change the filename ( the name that comes after http://www.godvalinchi.org/ ). Note that you need to do this twice for each flash movie - once for the <object> tag and once for the <embed> tag.

You can also change the width and height, but you need to also do this twice for each (when editing the source code)...

For example:

If you want to change the following flash movie...

<p><!-- FLASH MOVIE -->
  <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" border="0" width="600" height="400">
   <param name="movie" value="http://www.godvalinchiart.org/victors_auto.swf">
   <param name="quality" value="High">
   <embed src="http://www.godvalinchiart.org/victors_auto.swf" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="400" quality="High">
  </object>
<!-- END FLASH --></p>


...to show a different one ( let's call it "flash8.swf" ) with width=300 and height=200 you'd change it to this...


<p><!-- FLASH MOVIE -->
  <object classid="...stays the same..." codebase="...stays the same..." border="0" width="300" height="200">
   <param name="movie" value="http://www.godvalinchiart.org/flash8.swf">
   <param name="quality" value="High">
   <embed src="http://www.godvalinchiart.org/flash8.swf" pluginspage="...stays the same..." type="...stays the same..." width="300" height="200" quality="High">
  </object>
<!-- END FLASH --></p>


And here's the source code:
