Not  possible. The Flash based code lives on the Symantec server.

The link should work fine, I just went out there

Cycle-

When I implement it using the EXACT code given to me from the Symantec page, I get it to come up, but if I clcik on any of the tabs to expand them, the below image is what happens to me.  It's like the border for the widget is narrower that it should be or something.

Was there ever a solution to this. I am experiencing the same issue on IE7, Chrome, and Firefox. I am also running Flash 10. 

Seems alot of people have the issue. I have tweaked the divs nine ways to sunday without much luck. Seems to be a Flash object size issue.

Can you please share the information on your system, including what browser and version you are using?  It sounds like there's an issue with a <div> tag, so we'll continue to look into this.  Anything you can provide to help us replicate the issue would be helpful.

Thank you,

Eric

Absolutely.  I am using IE 8.0.71 on Windows 7. I also tried it on IE 7.0.573 running on Windows XP SP3

This was off of a test HTML file on my local hard drive that was yielding the above result.  You having me check the versions had me place it out on thr intranet here and once I did that the tabs fully expand, so all should be good.

The Server 2003 boxes with IIS are enabling something to run that my standard workstations OS's without IIS were not.

Thanks for the help.

I am using it without any problem.
there might be some problem with your page  design  as another div might be close to the widget and when you are expanding the widget it is going behiend the nearest div.

I'm still messing with this but what you need to do is use the "Content Editor Web Part" and tweak the style properties in the code until it appears in an agreeable fashion.  Click the "Source editor" to do this.

I'm no developer-- let alone a javascript developer-- but it's working. :-)

Hi,

I tried to load the Symantec threatcon widget on my new blog hosted by Google blogger. However after inserting the exact piece of code provided, it does not appear on the side bars of my blog, it seems like the HTML is incomplete.

Debugging the page in a browser like Google Chrome, i get an exception saying that "tthreatconlargejs"  is undefined.

<script language="javascript">

if (threatconlargejs) {document.write(threatconlargejs);}

</script>
</div>
</div>

The place where the exception occurs is in bold italics. Does someone already have a resolution to this issue?

Widget works great, but every time I load the page, I get a security message from IE asking if I want to display both secure and non-secure items...my site is on a secure server, but the threatcon is not...any ideas on how to eliminate the continued message?  Have tweaked IE settings to death, but no luck...any help would be very much appreciated...thanks!

I am not sure what setting would address this, but I am running this in IE 7 and Firefox 3.6.3 without issues.

I would like to add this widget to my page. However, I am a novice and unsure what to adjust to make it appear flush right on my page. I can place it somewhat where I want it, but it looks extremely out of place.

@ Andipop, Shoot me a PM with the link to your site. I will take a look at the code, and maybe find a better location for the script to live on the page.
