How to specify the correct path in the embedding code of the SWFs

 

Generally, you must know that the path of the assets the SWF uses (the path of the images or videos specified in the XML file and the path of the XML files themselves) must be relative to the path of the HTML file which embeds the SWF file (and not relative to the SWF file - a common confusion).

If the folder path of the HTML differs from the product’s folder path (the folder in which the XML files and images or videos are located) then you must specify that path as value for the base attribute.

This is an example for 3D Banner FX (replace the product's name if you're using a different one):

- the index.html file is located at this address on your domain: http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html

- the swfobject.js file is located at this address: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/swfobject.js

- the product's files (XMLs, assets and images) are located in the Banner folder: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/

- the 3DBannerFX.swf file is located in the product's folder: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/3DBannerFX.swf

This is the embedding code you have to use:

<div id="Div3DBannerFX"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Banner/swfobject.js"></script> //specify the folder's name here
<script type="text/javascript">
 var flashvars = {};
 var params = {};
 params.base = "Banner/"; //specify the folder's name here
 params.scale = "noscale";
 params.salign = "tl";
 params.wmode = "transparent";
 params.allowFullScreen = "true";
 params.allowScriptAccess = "always";
 swfobject.embedSWF("Banner/3DBannerFX.swf", "Div3DBannerFX", "600", "374", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params); //specify the folder's name here
</script>

You can also use absolute paths like in this example:

params.base = "http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/";

In case you used a different folder name don't forget to replace in all locations the Banner name with the name of your folder.

Note: there are three different locations in the embedding code where you have to specify the product's folder name so make sure you update all of them.

I did do all that.. so here is what i have

http://sanantoniomma.com/image-scroller/

i have it working there… but what do i need to use to embed it into a CMS website.. It will take HTML

Im trying to get that to show up in this CMS website… I just dont know what to use as far as the embed function or html jargon.

FlashXML Support

Use the same embedding code but don’t forget to properly update the path to the product’s files. Then send us the link to this page where you added the embedding code so we can check it in case you have issues with it.

You have to follow the install instructions from the product’s page carefully.

Im trying to add it to a WEEBLY website.. so i can do 1 of 2 things.. I can put custom html to bring the flash up in the are designated or there is a flash element where you can upload an swf there. I would prefer to upload a swf that would work but I realize that might not be possible since it needs to link to all these other elements… Please gimme some guidence here as how to proceed

FlashXML Support

As I already told you, you have to host our product’s files on a web server where all the files are publicly accessible and then add the custom HTML code specified in the install instructions for general websites from the product’s page where you want to display our product in your weebly website. Make sure you updated the paths to the product’s files as specified in the install instructions as well.

okay…so i have uploaded all the files to mywebsite.com/flash/

i made the flash directory and uploaded everything with the coverflow there

i edited the index.html file to what is below

<div id=“DivCoverFlowFX”></div>
<script type=“text/javascript” src=“swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”> var flashvars = {}; var params = {}; params.base = “”; params.scale = “noscale”; params.salign = “tl”; params.wmode = “transparent”; params.allowFullScreen = “true”; params.allowScriptAccess = “always”; swfobject.embedSWF(“CoverFlowFX.swf”, “DivCoverFlowFX”, “600”, “320”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params);
</script>

when i go to run it… it just shows me that

<div id=“DivCoverFlowFX”></div>
<script type=“text/javascript” src=“swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”> var flashvars = {}; var params = {}; params.base = “”; params.scale = “noscale”; params.salign = “tl”; params.wmode = “transparent”; params.allowFullScreen = “true”; params.allowScriptAccess = “always”; swfobject.embedSWF(“CoverFlowFX.swf”, “DivCoverFlowFX”, “600”, “320”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params);
</script>

that is all that is displayed on the screen

HELP :)

You have to add the HTML code in a section where you’re allowed to add HTML code that’s interpreted as HTML code and not as plain text.

I have a question considering Circular Gallery.
In the decription there is a line that says that there is a possibility of using Flickr / Picasa feeds to provide photos for the gallery – however in FAQ I did not found a way on how to do that. Would be grant to get the info how it should be done ;)

Best regards!

FlashXML Support

You can use photo albums from picasa, flickr, tumblr, photobucket, deviantart or mobypicture by adding the link to the web feed of your album to the assets element in the settings.xml file.
