Here Chris ... forget about the last one ;)

<object width="425" height="355">
<embed src="h ttp://educationinformation.yolasite.com/resources/engin2.16.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed>
</object>

Leave out the space between the "h" and the "ttp://"

Hello Chris,
Have you had a chance to look at our specific instructions for adding a flash file to your site? Here is a link: Embedding a flash file.

Can you give these instructions a try and let us know if you continue to have any trouble.

Then once a file has been added and is displaying fine, how can I make the file link to an other page?

Hello information.hypno

I'm sorry but I'm not clear on what you're wanting to do? This particular code will play your flash file on your website. So, you want it to play and then also be able to link to another page?

Hello information.hypno

Are you using the embed code Emmy posted or do you have different code you're using? If you happen to be using a different code, can you please paste here or share with me your page URL where you have already set up your Flash? I will try to see if I can come up with something. To paste codes in here, please use this HTML Encoder

Thanks for that information. I'll take a look and see if I can make something work. I'll have to scrounge around for a Flash file. I'll get back to you tomorrow with an update. Thanks for your patience.

Hello information.hypno

Unforutunately, I was not able to make this work. If you have a simple animated image file, then it is possible but to make it work with your Flash code, I was unable to do this. Perhaps someone on this forum may be able to come up with something. I'm sorry that I couldn't be of more help.

I don't understand your question. What specifically are you trying to achieve with your flash file?
