Hi Anep,

Unfortunatley it is not possible to upload and make use of your own template. Right now you need to select your style from our style library
Yola Style Guide.

You can definitely add swf files to your site. Follow these steps:

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"

Let us know if anything is unclear.
