Hello Tina,

Could you tell us what you mean by a flash site?

You can certainly use flash movies on your yola site.

Oh, A Flash site. I believe that Yola doesn't support TOTAL flash site at the moment, Define what you mean. For instance you want flash on your site, i could help with that.

Hi Tina,

Unfortunately you can't use external templates on Yola. You can select any of the now 70 odd templates available.

here is a great link for template comparison and selection:

You can however embed flash elements into a webpage and many have done this with remarkable effect.

I hope this answers your question.

Goodluck building.

You can embed a flash object by dragging an HTML widget (found on the right-hand side, under Content). Paste your code into the HTML widget box and your flash content should show up.

You cannot upload templates. Yola has a variety of templates for you to use, some of which are customizable. With the customizable ones, you can change the background and banners. Here's a style guide that will show you which template allows customization:

Hi Tina

What file type(s) does your flash template need to function? Will you just be embedding a single swf or will you need to upload other files to the file manager?

Yola has no completely blank templates, where you can uses your flash template and it will be the only part visible on your page, but there are ways to work around this to make certain templates almost completely blank.

Providing you don't need to upload any prohibited file types for your flash template to work, you may be able to use it inside of a yola template.

Thanks littleus!

Tina, 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>
-->

*Remove the <! -- and -- >

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"
