Hi Mike

The first thing is to upload your .swf file. You can do this from the Site menu -> Manage Files.

Next, drop an HTML or Widgetbox widget widget where you would like to see your Flash presentation, and paste the following HTML inside it (without the <!-- and --> lines - I just added those because GetSatisfaction tries to interpret the code):

<!--
<object width="200" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="resources/myswffile.swf">
<embed src="resources/myswffile.swf" width="200" height="400">
</embed>
</object>
-->

Then you just need to substitute "myswffile.swf" in the code above (in both places) with the name of the file you uploaded and you should see the Flash movie appear when you close the HTML widget editor. You'll need to play around with the width and height values in the text above to suit your movie's size.

Hope that helps

OK Mike here's what you're going to need to do then

1) copy all the code between the <!-- and --> from above

2) open Wordpad and then paste the above code into Wordpad

3) replace (myswffile.swf) from two places within the code with your file name

4) select all the code between <!-- and --> and copy

5) in your Synthasite editor select a Widgetbox widget and drag it onto your page (Widgetbox widgets always center any code graphics or images placed into it) I added that option because you said the HTML widget was giving you issues. Then paste the code with the new file name included in the widget. Click Ok

6) update your site

PS. Did you download your file to your file manager?

hmmm well I can speak from much experience that if you followed those directions it should work. Could you try editing the code again because that might be your problem.
