I have an SWF and its respective "data folder", by "data folder" i mean: the flash file uses images inside a folder, for example: if the flash file is "test.swf" then the data folder is "testdata". I have uploaded both the file and its respective data folder but the flash displays an error message telling it could not find its respective files...How can I make the flash file find its data folder? By the way its a virtual tour...

In looking at the image above it is clear that you are not using the proper shortened URLs to the resources in your file manager in the script. Try adding "resources/" before the use of "yola_enotecadata/" in your script wherever shown. It might be as simple as that... Alternatively and if the shortened URLs don't work you could try the full URLs to each resource instead.

Without seeing the actual page and script that you are using it is challenging to troubleshoot the problem. I recommend sharing the published page URL so that someone can look into the issue for you should the above not help.

Happy site building

Well, I actually hosted the tour on another server and just embedded in to YOLA, just like we do for a YOUTUBE video...

You might reconsider hosting files off Yola after you find out that unbeknownst to me for nearly a week my site was unable to load for my visitors when a file host that I used for some of my files was down due to server failure. Half of their farms were down and sadly my files were in the down farms. My site was dead in the water and I had no traffic as no one could access my site because when their browser tried to load my site it couldn't get past the missing file on the dead file host.

Not saying that will happen to you but why risk that chance?

I promised myself that would never happen again and since then have hosted 100% of my files in my file manager where I can be relatively assured of a 99% up time.

Which file host did you use as I have used a good percentage of them myself?

Its payed server, much faster and reliable than YOLA, Actually I just use YOLA because of its web creator, if I could dowload my site I would host it there.
