Flash Image Changer Details and Fixes
The Flash image changer is included on some Allwebco templates. This changer displays .jpg images that can usually be found in the template "flash" folder. Here are some details:
If you have a file called "image_changer.xml" in your "flash" folder then you have the XML changer. click here for help with the XML Changer. If you do not have this file please read below:
Where is the code:
The code that allows the flash image changer to be displayed can be found in the "sidebar.js" or the "imagechanger.js". You can change the border color or turn off the Flash by editing the variables near the top of the sidebar.js using Notepad or any plain text editor. The "imagechanger.js" usually only includes the animation sizes and background color.
My images are not working:
If you have replaced these 8 (or more) .jpg images and they are not showing up on the page here are some possible reasons.
Background color does not change:
- Do not save these .jpg images as "progressive". Be sure to save them as "standard" .jpg images. Try re-saving these images using a "save as" and be sure to select "standard".
- You did not flatten the image layers before saviing the .jpg file.
- You have edited the wrong images or the template is not unzipped properly.
- If this problem is after uploading click here.
- Make sure "Hotlink Protection" is turned off in your hosting account.
If you edit the color in the .js file the background may not change. This will be because the Flash is setup as transparent and the background will be the color of your webpage. Or the color may be defined in your template CSS file.
