A little Flash/PHP Challenge….

Hey everyone,
I have a bit of a challenge in front of me…

On my product page I have a flash file. It has a large image placed in it and a nifty little feature that allows users to make an offer on the guitar.
For this to work, the Flash file needs to call on a PHP script to POST the variables to my email address. It works perfectly when I go to the address of the flash file in my browser (, but it won’t work on my product page.

To display the Flash file I have used the following code in a custom-made attribute for displaying HTML:

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
WIDTH="890" HEIGHT="445" id="title"><PARAM NAME="AllowScriptAccess" VALUE="always">
PARAM NAME=movie VALUE=""><PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high><PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF><EMBED src="" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH="890" HEIGHT="445"
NAME="title" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"

I am having the same issue with Flash files in CMS static blocks. I have a flash banner that when clicked, should go to another page, but it doesn’t do anything.

The link for the product page is here:

If anybody can help me with this issue it would be greatly appreciated.
