Hi D-Zine,

Please can you check that you using the correct file location. 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"

Hello IrvinS,

The file myswffile.swf needs to be uploaded into the file manager but not this code:
<!--
<object width="200" height="400">
<param name="movie"value="resources/myswffile.swf">
<embed src="resources/myswffile.swf"width="200"height="400"/> </object>
-->
This code you must paste into an HTML widget on your page.

So there's two parts to this process

1. Upload your swf file into the File manager
2. paste the code into an HTML widget on your page. you do have to remove the <!-- and --> before you paste the code into the HTML widget.

I hope I have made this clear for you.
