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...

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:
