Dreamweaver and server files display differently

I had an older website that used Flash. I used Flash to pan and zoom a map. I want to replace that code with Zoomify.

 

I make all the necessary changes on my computer and using the preview button the resulting page looks great. I've tried this with Chrome, Firefox and IE.

 

I upload the files to the server. When I display the webpage that contains the map, everything displays except the map. That area is blank. I do not get an error message, e.g. 404 file not found.

 

I then went to the html file on my computer, right clicked, and said to open with Firefox. The page opens but the map is not shown. Everything else looks good. No errors displayed.

 

I tried clearing the cache but that did not help.

 

The perplexing thing is that I don't get any errors like 404 can't find file.

 

Do you have any suggestions as to what I might try?

Let me be clear, the issue is why does it display fine in Dreamweaver but only when displayed in Dreamweaver.

Could you give us a link to the site?

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

Please keep in mind that this website was created many years ago. I'm in the process of an overhaul using responsive web design and Bootstrap, but I want to make sure the old site still works in the transition.

 

By the way, does anyone know when Flash disappears completely?

I see the map fine...

It's probably a cache issue, especially if you're using Chrome or its derivatives. Chrome's cache is notoriously sticky.

Thank you. I thought it might be the cache so I cleared it, but apparently not well enough.

 

I appreciate your help.

If you are using Chrome, or another Chrome-based browser, while developing your site...

1. Turn on the Developer Tools by hitting F12

2. In the panel that appears, click the Network tab

3. Place a check next to Disable Cache

4. Visit your website

 

This will give you a fresh copy of your pages from your server every time you reload, but you do need to leave the Developer Tools panel open in the browser to benefit from the disabled cache.

"does anyone know when Flash disappears completely?"

Flash Player officially ends Dec 31st at midnight.  But for most people, Flash content is no longer an option because modern browsers like Safari have already disabled it.  And iOS never supported Flash.

The W3C validation service shows 19 code errors and 14 warnings.  That's not helping matters.

On a positive note, there are no mixed content issues because your server is not secure.

However on a negative note, your server is NOT secure.  That's not a good message for site visitors to see. Even the low-level free certs from Let's Encrypt would be better than no certs at all.

Without seeing the page in question it's very hard to say what could be happening.

Though, it does sound a lot like you might have mixed http and https elements on the same page. Insecure content will sometimes fail to load, or give any error, when mixed into a secure page.
