I'm trying to use the flash widget, but have it count/track and direct the visitor to mysubdomain.tradepub.com, and although I replace the original domain with the subdomain, it doesn't seem to work. It does work on the other kinds of code. IS what I'm trying to do impossible with flash?

Hey Work911 - It isn't impossible to accomplish what you're trying to do with the flash widget, in fact, it's very possible. Here's how:

You want to replace the "ptnr=" codes with the subdomain you're trying to track. If right now the HTML looks like this --

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="120" height="240" id="color test" align="middle"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="movie" value=http://img.tradepub.com/images/bimages/120x240catselect_scroll.swf?ptnr=work911&color1=000000&color2=888888&textcolor=FFFFFF&lcolor1=000000&cat=Comp&catnum=4 /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><embed src=http://img.tradepub.com/images/bimages/120x240catselect_scroll.swf?ptnr=work911&color1=000000&color2=888888&textcolor=FFFFFF&lcolor1=000000&cat=Comp&catnum=4 quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="120" height="240" name="color test" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" wmode="transparent" /></object>

Replace to read like this:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="120" height="240" id="color test" align="middle"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="movie" value=http://img.tradepub.com/images/bimages/120x240catselect_scroll.swf?ptnr=NEWPARTNERCODE&color1=000000&color2=888888&textcolor=FFFFFF&lcolor1=000000&cat=Comp&catnum=4 /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><embed src=http://img.tradepub.com/images/bimages/120x240catselect_scroll.swf?ptnr=NEWPARTNERCODE&color1=000000&color2=888888&textcolor=FFFFFF&lcolor1=000000&cat=Comp&catnum=4 quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="120" height="240" name="color test" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" wmode="transparent" /></object>

Thank you Karen. I didn't realize there were TWO locations that needed to be changed.
