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"/>

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"

I am not seeing the flash movie playing. I made a flip book in flash and just want to embed it on the site. Here is my code
<object width="720" height="420">
<param name="movie"value="resources/theendofplays.avp1.swf">
<embed src="resources/theendofplays.avp1.swf"width="720"height="420"/>
did I input it incorrectly?

Can you please share with us the page URL where you're trying to set this up? I'd like to take a look at the code on your page. Thanks!

I noticed that nobody has given an answer in quite some time. I thought this issue would have been corrected by now. I am still not able to add flash to my site. I need help!!
