I've asked this question before, but I have trouble time each time i try to incorporate this feature into my existing HTML code. I have the "swfobject.js" in all my folders.
Could you please rewrite the attached source code to fix the flash content problem?

Thanks,
John

You could try this wizard to help you:
http://www.kirupa.com/developer/flash8/flash_fix.htm

One thing that will cause problems is the space character in the file name.  "Brick Wall.swf" should be renamed to "brickwall.swf"

Thanks, rouchie. I went to that link, which generated this code for me:

<script type="text/javascript" src="flashobject.js"></script>
<div id="flashcontent" style="width: 720px; height: 540px"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var fo = new FlashObject("../BrickWall.swf", "animationName", "720", "540", "8", "#FFFFFF");
fo.addParam("allowScriptAccess", "sameDomain");
fo.addParam("quality", "high");
fo.addParam("scale", "noscale");
fo.addParam("loop", "false");
fo.write("flashcontent");
</script>

I tried it and all I got was a webpage with the code on it in text.

I'm afraid I am so dense that I need you to place this script in my code above excatly where it should go.

Thanks,
John

>> I tried it and all I got was a webpage with the code on it in text.

That's because there is an error in your code - you have no <body> tag, so the browser doesn't know when to start rendering.

Here's is the correct code, place in the appropriate place:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>JC Portfolio</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
<!--
function MM_reloadPage(init) {  //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
  if (init==true) with (navigator) {if ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
    document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight; onresize=MM_reloadPage; }}
  else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH) location.reload();
}
MM_reloadPage(true);
//-->
</script>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body {
        background-color: #000000;
        background-repeat: repeat-x;
}
.style6 {
        color: #FFFFFF;
        font-family: Bobcat;
        font-size: 36px;
}
-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<div align="center">
  <p>&nbsp;</p>
  <p>
<script type="text/javascript" src="flashobject.js"></script>
<div id="flashcontent" style="width: 720px; height: 540px"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var fo = new FlashObject("../BrickWall.swf", "animationName", "720", "540", "8", "#FFFFFF");
fo.addParam("allowScriptAccess", "sameDomain");
fo.addParam("quality", "high");
fo.addParam("scale", "noscale");
fo.addParam("loop", "false");
fo.write("flashcontent");
</script>
  </p>
</div>
</body>
</html>

It still doesn't work, so here is the link to a folder with the html and swf  and the script files, so that you can download them and emulate exactly what I'm doing: http://67.19.27.66/~john/PortfolioTest/

I tried to copy the code from another webpage of mine where I was able to get it to work with 2 swf files, and here's a link to those files:  http://67.19.27.66/~john//DreamusTest/

Hopefully this will do the trick!

Thanks,
Johh
