unsure how to get the html work

Hi,

I have made a simple .swf file to have the pictures and the words changed (based on the template version in EWA.

I can not get it to work on my site. I have looked at the code DeltaDave helped me with with mine.. change the paramators to fit the new one.. and still does not work. can anyone help?

Thank you

I have uploaded it to a markup item to:

https://www.faithsatellite.com/untitled13.html

here is the code:

    <OBJECT classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000'    codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0'     WIDTH='800' HEIGHT='560' id='Faithsatellite'> 
    <PARAM NAME='movie' VALUE='http://www.grassrootsweb.net/Faithsatellite.swf'>
    <PARAM NAME='allowScriptAccess' VALUE='always'>
    <PARAM NAME='bgcolor' VALUE='#FFFFFF' >
    <EMBED src='http://www.faithsatellite.com/Faithsatellite.swf' bgcolor='#FFFFFF' allowScriptAccess='always'  WIDTH='800' HEIGHT='560'  NAME='Faithsatellite'     TYPE='application/x-shockwave-flash' PLUGINSPAGE='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer'></EMBED>
</OBJECT>

Thank you for your help!

Hi Julie, The best way to get the Flash file on your site is to ignore the markup that EWA creates for you and simply drop the swf file directly into your Freeway page. Freeway will not only create the correct mark up for your page but will handle the swf upload as well. Regards, Tim.

Hi Tim,

Thank you.

Do I put it in a graphic item or a markup? I have never put a swf on my FW page.

Thank you!

Treat the SWF like a standard passthrough graphic. Draw a standard HTML item on the page, File -> Import, and select your SWF file.

PS,

OK in that case I would use the code you had quoted before (see below) that EWA created for you. You just need to make sure that the following information is correct; 1. Width and height of the SWF - search for WIDTH=’800’ and HEIGHT=’560’ (they appear twice each) and change these to the correct values 2. Make sure that the paths to the SWF file are correct and these are absolute and not relative links. The links in your example look like they are missing the Resources folder reference. For example; http://www.faithsatellite.com/Resources/Faithsatellite.swf

<PARAM NAME='movie' VALUE='http://www.grassrootsweb.net/Faithsatellite.swf'  >
<EMBED src='http://www.faithsatellite.com/Faithsatellite.swf' ...

Regards, Tim.

Thank you. I put the swf in the public_html folder not the resources folder. even if you are handing the code to someone else - which is better?

Thank you so much!

TIm,

couple of questions,

how do you resize. the EWA size?

or how do you do - graphic - scale to box? this is grayed out/

also -how would you remove the white background of the EWA so it is transparent in the swf.

THank you

also -how would you remove the white background of the EWA so it is transparent in the swf. The background of your SWF needs to be a solid color or an image. It can’t be transparent.

Hi Julie, The looping video of the mini video clips is certainly achievable. Have a look at the documentation and search for movie clips. The rest of the video is MUCH more complex and involves a LOT of video post production work, so no EWA isn’t going to help you there. Regards, Tim.

Tim,

I will look on that. I figured that about the video - and that is not me.

How do you change the background color? or not have the white / colored show? is that done by having a background graphic etc?

Thanks
