Slideshow on a Web Page

I created a slide show for a web page that doesn't seem to want to appear when the link is clicked. I had a slide show there at one time that worked  but we decided to take it down until we had some newer pictures to put on it. Now when you click the link - no slide show. The web site is http://northpole-net.net and the slide show is the link that says, "Want to see Santa in Action?" I am attaching a text file with the code from this page. Please advise.

Thank you!

Hi Robert,

The slideshow appears to use an SWF file.  When I try to open that file directly it says file not found.  Can you confirm if the /images/santa2015.swf file is there?

That file is there but it may be an issue with the filename being Santa2015.swf and the code calling for santa2015.swf. I will make the change and see what happens. Thanks for the feedback. I looked at this forever and this didn't dawn on me.
OK. I changed the case to match the filename but that did not solve the problem.
It has been years since I worked with Flash, but looking around your file may be missing a link to a .js file.  From what I can see the function used to call your slide show is called AC_FL_RunContent.  This function is usually defined in a .js file called AC_RunActiveContent.js.

But nowhere on your page do you link this JavaScript file.  Have a look to see if you have this file in your web directory and if so add script tags to load it, e.g.:
<script type="text/javascript" src="Santa2015/AC_RunActiveContent.js"></script>

Open in new window

I do have AC_FL_RunContent.js in my directory. It is in the public_html\images\scripts directory. I added this line - <script src="../scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script> - to the code but still no luck. I have similar slide shows on other web sites that work but I can't figure out what is different on this one.
I just looked at the source code of another web page I created with a slide show that works and tried to mirror this one with it. I am attaching that source code for you perusal. I really cannot find the error.

Are you sure you sent the edited version? I don't see any difference between this and what I had up on the web site and I still can't get it to open.

It's working now! Thank you!!
Excellent.  I'm glad I could help.
One last question, though, if I want to update that slide show each year can I just create a new slide show with the same filename and upload it over the current slide show?
