The movie doesn't show up on this page, but it does on another. Why?

Head out to http://www.echoframe.com/Cart/home.php. If you look at the source code, you'll notice that there's an swf file that should be running along the bottom of the page, but it's not there.

If you go to http://echoframe.com/Cart/dockmenuFrame.html,you'll see the same code, the same swf but it doesn't show up on Safari. In other words, the dockmenu doesn't show up on home.php, but it does show up on dockmenuFrame.html. Why?

I don't get that and I'm hoping someone can explain what I need to do to make it right.

Works in IE :)

If you look at the source it is different ....

home.php does not have wmode="transparent"

the other does not have bgcolor="#ffffff"

Maybe that's it

WC

Home.PHP 
 
<embed src="dockmenuFrame.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="900" height="200" name="dockmenuFrame" align="middle" 
allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
 
Other
 
<embed src="dockmenuFrame.swf" quality="high" wmode="transparent"  width="900" height="200" name="dockmenuFrame" align="middle" 
allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

Open in new window

I was able to figure it out through process of elimination.

When I removed the following line from the header, everything worked:


<base href="http://echoframe.com/Cart/" />

Do you have any idea what's so significant about that line that it would prevent the dockmenuFrame.swf from showing up?
