    Inserting Flash Link to this post

    I have managed to quite successfully upload a small Flash object, that I knew used to work, and still does, on my own local computer. However, I am having a lot of trouble inserting it.

    When clicking the Flash f button in the toolbar along the top, I receive the Flash panel on the right hand side of the screen.

    I find and click on the Flash content I would like to insert and then I add in the dimensions of the Flash object. I click the button, 'Insert Flash' and a gel button with a 'f' on it appears in the content, to the same dimensions as I have added in.

    However, upon saving and publishing, absolutely nothing happens.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I have managed to upload flash into the framework with relative ease, although I am having difficultly aligning it. As soon as I do it becomes an img tag. Can anyone help?

    Many thanks

    Also I've just noticed that if you try to add any additional properties to the flash, ie doing it manually in the HTML editor, it doesn't save the changes.

    Please help somebody. Or at least let me know if your having the same trouble.

    hi Katb,
    I had the same problem, The solution was to give permissions to the folder:

    assets (chmod 777)

    and then try again with the steps that he said stooni.

       
    Another solution would be:

       
    you should have the Pase.ss file in the folder: templates
    and upload your flash to the folder: images
       
    Decide where you place it after the </head>

       
    here what you call your flash, example:

    <object height="327" width="709" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000">
    <param value="../images/ejemplo.swf" name="movie"/>
    <param value="high" name="quality"/>
    <param value="false" name="menu"/>
    <param value="transparent" name="wmode"/>
    <embed height="327" width="709" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" menu="false" quality="high" wmode="transparent" src="../images/ejemplo.swf"/>
    </object>

    I hope that what solutions
       
    I feel sorry for my bad English

    I did the change to the java as suggested in the wiki, but that still wont allow me to change the alignment of the Flash, it just keeps stripping out the HTML.

    Rube_25 - I'm afraid that I don't really know what you mean?

    Any ideas ?

    Surely there must be a simple way of doing this. What do people do when inserting flash? Do they just have it in the text with no wrapping and spacing. Am I missing a trick somewhere.
