Flash SWF files are really quite easy to place on your website. While there are many codes to use for adding SWF files to a website I have found this one to be one of the best.

1) Make sure that the SWF movie that you wish to play is in your file manager.
2) Copy the following code between the <!-- and the -> into your Notepad text editor and edit to reflect the name of your SWF file in your file manager as well as change the movie dimensions to match yours. (twice for the file name and twice for the dimensions)
3) Paste the code when edited into an HTML widget in your sitebulder

<!--

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/sh..." width="570" height="345">
<param name="movie" value="resources/YOURFLASH.swf">

<param name="quality" value="high">

<param value="always" name="allowScriptAccess">

<param value="transparent" name="wMode">

<embed src="resources/YOURFLASH.swf" wmode="transparent" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/downlo..." type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="570" height="345"> </object> 

-->

It really is that easy...

Happy site building
Ed

Please list the URL of the page that you embedded the flash movie and we can get this worked out for you... Need the published site so that we can verify the code...

oh now it worked! I only put the name of the Flash movie on one of the YOURFLASH.swf parts in the code.
