You should be publishing to Flash VR or Automatic Flash/HTML5
Okay Smooth, just to show I am not looking for someone to build my website, I went through every resource I could find and came up with nothing. I even downloaded the user guide but it is really old - Version 2 or somewhere along those lines.
When you say I must publish to the HTML page not only the swf - I am taking that to mean I have to have both link (somehow) to the same viewer. (Not sure how that is even possible)
I have published the file in both swf (my preferred preference) and Flash VR.
TW then creates all of it's files which I have then uploaded.
If I put up both the swf and the Flash I have 1 executable that launches a popup viewer (swf) and a text link that launches the movie inside of windows full screen.
(But, the changes on my text area are holding in the html link.LOL)
I have followed the instructions for the html file and pasted them as they are
but that still only gives me a link that opens in the viewer and not as a popup window.
These are the options for publishing to a web page.
One of these HTML pages publish is the "tour" the other is a launch page to make the "tour" open in a sized window. (or you get the code from this page to add to your existing HTML page).
You link to the .html page, never directly to a .swf file. Because if you do, your .swf file has no instructions to work to (as the html file contains the parameters).
So I hear you ask: Why do we have the option to publish to (swf)? Answer: This is for those who use Flash CS and wish to make the tour part of a Flash project or Flash only website. Whilst it is possible to use the .swf file in a .html page using relative simple html code, Tourweaver doesn't produce this code and the pre-loader/loader doesn't work.
Personally I would work away from "pop-up" sized tours. Use a proper web page with the tour embedded or use a lightbox type overlay feature. But these are decisions for you to make.
.... and yes I need to update the links for my commission smooth360.info web site.
