Help using sIFR

oesj's picture

Hi, I'm trying to implement sIFR and not having much luck.

Using a combination of this ( tutorial and the index.html example that comes with the files, I have this:

[edit: How do I post code properly?]
[edit: I've uploaded the html here ]

All files are in the same directory, so the paths shouldn't be the problem.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance,

What exactly is the problem? Like is the text not displaying in trade gothic, or is it not showing up at all?

I implemented sIRF recently on this website: You're welcome to cut bits of that code out to see if you can make yours work.

It just shows up in normal text as if the sifr didn't exist.

Can you upload the page you're working on somewhere? Not just the code - the actual live page.

Sure, I've put it up here:
[edit: I've just got this one to work, but now I have a different problem - the original text doesn't disappear!]

I've downloaded your page and changed the swf name (to both the one I created and the tradegothic one that came with it) and it doesn't work.

According to FireBug, you're missing the sifr-screen.css file and the sifr-print.css file. These are NOT optional files. They are required in order for your code to work properly. Also, you don't seem to have a sifr-config.js file. Are you using the latest version, etc.?


You're not missing the files! You've misspelled the names. :)

That said, you really should upgrade to the latest version of sIFR, found here (
