Hi people,
I've been trawling the internet for a Flash banner rotator that changes the advert when the page changes/refreshes however I have yet to find one that I can make work in a .SS file (sidebar).

Any solutions?

Hello, I think it is the same as with an image, a banner or a logo Image!

does the flash file just not load on the page or you trying to embed it in the Tiny MCE editor??.

There shouldnt be any issues with loading flash in templates. See for a good example of a SilverStripe site using flash. is another flash site but thats completely flash! I dont think that even uses ss templates.

I was trying add a swf file, but i can not do it.
Plus, a try copying the swf at the /assets/Uploads by ftp, I did upload my flash, but the Tiny does not show the flash and i can not have my swf into my site.
