Hey there guys,
I am currently in the construction phase of my website. I decided to use Facebox for one of the links on my site. Once clicked, the facebox windows pops up and reveals a flash game that I embedded from a Wallace and Gromit site. This works fine in Safari and Firefox, however, I am having problems getting it to work on IE and Opera. I was wondering if there was something I had excluded to prevent it from opening up or if these browsers just aren’t compatible with flash embedded within Facebox.
Just out of curiosity, have you tried embedding the Flash without Facebox? ie.Does it work if it’s placed inside a normal div? At least then we will know for sure if the problem is Facebox or something else.
I decided to implement shadowbox.js. I had a look at shadowbox.js at some point in time, but didnt know if it would work with swf files.. but it does. It looks a lot better, supports a flash embed and it also works extremely well with Opera.
I use a mac with Crossover installed so i can run internet explorer, but this doesn’t allow me install flashplayer on the browser. So at the moment I dont know if it runs in IE, but the shadowbox open up, which is good.
Might implement a png fix at some point in time when im bothered.
