Hello Googa Link

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"/>

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"

Please let us know if you have any difficulties with this.

Hi there, Cadu3d,

Can you please let me know what data folder you are referring to? What is your SWF file loading?

Hello Sanja, you helpped me with this a while ago and I need your talent once again. I embedded a SWF into my pages but I want to move it using the margin tool over my banner. What options do I need to do to get this result.

thank you again
