Wordpress Banner Will Not Display

Hi all.  If you go to www.networkmyoffice.com you will see a site I am working on.  The banner will not load.  The banner is actually trying to pull the images from rvminc.com but I changed all the links in the Wordpress Administrator to networkmyoffice.com.  Is there something that I missed?  I checked the database and the link for the site is correct.  I am using wp crossfade plugin that produces the flash banner.  If I connect from the computer that is hosting the web site the banner works.

Please help!

Your website doesn't seem to work here, but I still might be able to give some hints :)

You say that your banner is displaying correctly if you run it on the website that hosts the website. This, most definately, means that the (flash) banner contains links to the local machine / server. So if you access the website and launch the banner from another place than the local machine, the references to the image(s) links won't work.
Even though the wp-crossfade produces the flash, I think the links in that flash might not be correct. But then again, it would be helpfull if I could see the website :)

What do you need to see?  Do you mean the code?

Are you using an absolute link to display the banner? ie. do your links start with http:// 

The source code from  www.networkmyoffice.com  would help.

Yes - no local links.  I got the links to point to www.networkmyoffice.com now but for some reason the banner will not load.  If you go to rvminc.com you will see that the banner works there.

OK - I was wrong about getting the link working.  The banners are still trying to load all images from rvminc.com

Yeah that's what I said above. You should really check your links, because it looks like they are pointing / redirecting to a wrong location.

OK - For some reason WP Croddfade in Wordpress was glitvhy.  I deleted the banners and re-did them from scratch and now all is fine.
