    i'v two technical problems :

    1: i'v a flash menu,i need to know what is the flash menu codes(for making links, e.g home,about us,company... how to make the flash menu connect to hyerlinks when clicking on each link ) !! u can provide the code to resolve this annoying browser message : "The requested URL /html/aboutus.html was not found on this server."

    2: the other task is a tricky way to allow my website to have a small icon (in the address bar ) like webhotingtalk,u can see that there's a small icon preceding the website address, how t oreach this !

    sorry if i didn't make tings clearer as i'm not an expert in webmaster. i'm a smart learner.

    2) is simply a little image file called: favicon.ico

    e.g. http://www.webhostingtalk.com/favicon.ico

    make one yourself, or search for an online tool to create one.

    "The requested URL /html/aboutus.html"

    1/ you need to edit the fla menu file and make sure the directory paths are correct.

    i.e remove the "html" from the links in the fla file and make sure all html files are in the root directory folder.

    2/ also the small icon is a fav icon...

    1. Not sure sorry

    2. If you are referring to the favicon you must first create the 16px by 16px image either in Photoshop or you can use a free online tool to make it. (Search Google for "favicon maker") The file should be saved as favicon.ico (May not have to be but it's easier)

    Once you have your 16px by 16px icon upload it to your public_html folder. Make sure you don't put the file inside any folder other than public_html

    Next you need to add the following code inside the <head></head> tags on all of your websites pages.

    <link rel="Shortcut Icon" href="/favicon.ico" />

    It may take a while to show the icon once you have re-uploaded your website files.

    the file name should be: favicon.ico

    you can check it by loading http://yourdomainname/favicon.ico
    in your browser

    On each page, I usually have:

    <head>
    <link rel="icon" href="http://domainname.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://domainname.com/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
    </head>

    To my knowledge the image size has to be 16 by 16.

    I use 32x32 icons. WHT's favicon is 48x48.

    Use 16x16 if you wish, but it's no longer necessary.

    Make your Icon and save it as favicon

    Then put <link rel="Shortcut Icon" href="/favicon.ico" />
    The pages you want it to show.

    For the flash link, you need to put the right url in there... so in the actionscript for the url put this:

    on (release) {
    getURL("http:/yoursite.com/whateverpage.html","_self","GET");
    }

    Now, you need 2 things... the .fla file & flash to edit the .fla file....
