Hello,
You can add flash pieces to your site, although making the background a flash file is not possible.

Here's how to add a flash file to your page:

1) Upload your .swf file. You can do this by clicking on the File Manager button.

2) Drag and drop a HTML widget onto your site, where you would like to see your flash presentation, and paste the following HTML inside it:

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

Note: Leave out the < !-- and -- > at beginning and end.

3) Then 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 editor. You'll need to play around with the width and height values in the text above, to suit your movie's needs.

4) Remember to include any folder names in the file path if your file is stored in a folder in the File Manager. For example: "resources/Flash folder/myswffile.swf"

Kind Regards,
Emmy
