"How can I make my page more dynamic using Flash?"
This method will only work on Flash supported devices.
There are two things to remember when using Flash on your site:
- You will have to provide your own Flash (.swf or .flv) file, as they are not created using the Webs platform.
- To add Flash to your website you will be utilizing the HTML module. For more information on using HTML on your site, click here.
Use of the Custom HTML module is a premium feature. Click here to upgrade your account to Premium.
Start by uploading your Flash Video File (either .swf or .flv) to your File Manager.
Place a Custom HTML module on the selected page. To add HTML to your page, click the Other tab at the bottom of the Builder. Select the Custom HTML module and drag it onto the page. Once the module is in place, double-click the module placeholder to load the HTML editor.
Paste the following code:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="Add your flash link here" width="100%" height="100%"></object>
*Or you can enter a specific width and height
Ex. width="570px" height="865px"
Replace the “Add your flash link” with a link to the Flash file in your File Manager. The link to the file in your File Manager is the website's address followed by the flash file's name. (Ex. If the flash file's name is "flash_file.swf",the link would be "http://www.yourwebsite.webs.com/flash_file.swf". Or, if you have a custom domain name, it would be "http://www.yourwebsite.com/flash_file.swf".
Click Publish and you are done.
