Hi.. I dont know much about flash, just a little html.. and I'm trying to post a banner on my webpage that links to another site and so far it just comes up as a white banner with nothing on it. The necessary files i have on my desktop, and the instructions I was given for the banner say to "Post your revised webpage html and all banner files into the same directory on your web server. Make sure all files from your downloaded zip file, including the variables.txt file, are placed into the same directory."

What directory do they mean? Am I supposed to upload these files to a separate server?


Here's the code I am using..


Code: [ Select ]
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="408" height="72" id="Banner408x72" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="Banner408x72.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><embed src="Banner408x72.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="408" height="72" name="Banner408x72" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
</object>
  1. <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="408" height="72" id="Banner408x72" align="middle">
  2. <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
  3. <param name="movie" value="Banner408x72.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /><embed src="Banner408x72.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="408" height="72" name="Banner408x72" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
  4. </object>


Any help would be much appreciated! I have the latest version of flash installed.

basd on the code

<param name="movie" value="Banner408x72.swf" / AND

<embed src="Banner408x72.swf"

the banner would have to be in the same directory as every webpage it is displayed on.

I think this is impossible to do since the site we are referring to is our myspace.com music site- you can put your own html in the pages but there isnt a way to upload these folder files to their server. I dont have a server to upload to... am I missing something? I think Im going to simply link to this page Im trying to link to with a generic gif.

You could Upload it somewhere ad fully qualify the file name
http://www.mydomain.com/images/Banner408x72.swf in the embed and params tag ... heres a little tip for you to...to eliminate IE Click for activation consider using the swfobject.js Javascript Library....I suspect you want your banner clickable.
