Hi Sebastian,

The first thing is to upload your .swf file. You can do this from the Site menu -> Manage Files.

Next, drop an HTML widget where you would like to see your Flash presentation, and paste the following HTML inside it (without the <!-- and --> lines - I just added those because GetSatisfaction tries to interpret the code):

<!--
<object width="200" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="resources/myswffile.swf">
<embed src="resources/myswffile.swf" width="200" height="400">
</embed>
</object>
-->

Then you just need to 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 widget editor. You'll need to play around with the width and height values in the text above to suit your movie's size.

Regards,
Wayne

It worked. Wonderful! One small issue, it came in with a large White background that not part of the flash page. Changing the size and height also changes that unwanted white background. Any thoughts?

See http://www.keyehcom.synthasite.com/ view the "card-free international call" page.

hi joey, i tried it out and, yes you can change the height, but you have to make sure you change both heights, the one in front and the one in the back. i tried it on my test site. you can see it in action here: http://test-site.synthasite.com/test-.... make sure you adjust the dimensions to around: width=400 height=273. good luck
