I have a client who is new to web development and I myself don't know anything about flash files. We have a site that she is trying to edit and now the flash menu is no longer showing up.

the site is: http://www.warsawmochamber.com

here is the current html of the site:

Looking at things, I think it is a 404 problem. The code specifies everything as "flash/menu_v8.swf", and such, but when I goto http://www.warsawmochamber.com/flash/menu_v8.swf I get a 404. Also if I goto http://www.warsawmochamber.com/flash/ I get a 404.

Either the files aren't on the server (as noticed by the lack of the specified directory and files), or they're not in the location specified in your code.

Yep, thanks. It does appear that the file was deleted from the server. My bad. Thanks!
