I been trying since yesterday to make my flash signature (with music) work. A friend of mine made the sig for me in his Nuke Evo site. It works in his site but when I replaced my old Forum sig (via Profile) on my site, it doesn't. I tried installing a multi-bbcode mod & flash mod hacks I found in some other sites after reading several forum threads here about the matter but the mods won't work with RavenNuke (the flash sig is not showing up). Any help on this? The flash sig code is below...

The attachment mod is completely different to forum signatures.
The link you postsed clearly uses BBCode so there must be something in the bbcode.php which is not correctly handling the swf file.

If your forum has 'html' enable in the forum config, have you tried using the html code instead? You'll need to add the EMBED and OBJECT html tags to the 'allowed' html in the forum config.
Generally speaking, it is a bad idea to allow embedding flash objects as malicious code can be added to the action event.

Both embed & object html tags I've already added before in the "allowed" html in the forum config. I also tested this sig in another friend's site on RaveNuke & got the same result. All I see is the code but not the image.

As I said, the BBCode tags will not work unless the bbcode.php file is modified to 'interpret' it.
I'm assuming from your last post you have tried using html (instead of BBCode) and even though you have 'allowed' them in the forum config it isn't showing up.
Do you have a link to a post with the code being used so I can see what is still getting striped out?

I've also installed an Advance BBCode mod box earlier. The mod also is not working...

I have always found that this is a bad practice. I no longer allow any type of SWF to used. It causes too many security risks.

Looks like you have spaces in the link which is getting encoded as %20 so the first thing is to remove spaces and any other special characters you have except hyphens and underscores.

On the link that you have provided I see the flash signiture working. I assume that you have figured out whatever issue you had. Is this correct?

I don't get what you said. The code works when used in a Nuke Evo site but not in a RavenNuke site like mine.

Windows servers probably don't mind spaces in file names, unfortunately Linux does mind and it is also case sensitive where Windows isn't.
It is not a good thing to have spaces in a file name so I suspect the filtering we use in RN is different to that used in Evo and that is why the 'space' is getting encoded.
Did you actually try it with no spaces?

Are these the two ESRIDER flash images that are not working (the bottom one has sound)?

All of the flash sigs by Rider wont work in my site. It's working fine in his site.

I am confused about this. When I view the link I clearly see both of the flash signitures working. I can mouse over them and hear the music play as well. Except for the [center] codes showing, what is the issue? Forgive me if I have missed something in this post. Please clairify. Thank you.

You are looking at my friend's site, not mine...

What is your url? Can you provide a direct link to the forum showing the issue?

Can you open the forums up so that registration isn't needed for the testing of this problem? I don't actually wish to sign up.

Most likely some of the edits for the bbcode mod are not complete. Which bbcode version are you adding since there are several out?

The latest bbcode mod, bbcode box mod & multibbcode mod. I installed it right for sure. Nothing's missing.

I removed the mods coz it's not working.

It works because I have done it, There are a couple bbcode mod versions that required different edits than it said in the instructions so that might be the issue. What version of rn are you using?

I'm using the latest one for the RN. Would you give me the link to the flash sig of yours that's working. I've tested the sig in 2 RN sites both it's not working.

It has nothing to do with RN, the mod is clearly not installed correctly. As you say you followed the instructions then the instructions must be wrong (which Loki mentioned).
Loki giving you a link to a flash image is not going to make it work either as the mod is clearly not working, so therefore it is not interpreting what to do correctly with the flash content.

If you want help, please answer the questions that are asked otherwise we are going to be hear a long time.

Since you didn't answer the question "which version", let's try and establish it.
I think the latest version of the Advance BBCode MOD is version 5.1 (I'm sure Loki will correct me if I'm wrong) and yes, the instructions were wrong for that one.
The install procedure and some code were corrected and sent back to the site they were downloaded from Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! so they should have a good copy of the MOD - though it does not include the shoutbox.

I went to Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! hoping to find what I'm looking for but came up empty handed. I've searched under site Downloads about flash mod, bbcode mod, etc. to no avail. Finally I decided to start a forum thread there at clan-themes about the problem & I got this response:
Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

My apology for being skeptical on something claimed by other as working. It's always been a habit of mine not to believe on something unless I see it or have some definitive facts to support such claim. After not seeing an RN site with functional flash sig, I remained adamant that it's really working.
