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.

Hi,

Make sure that you have uploaded all component’s files at this location: http://www.canamu.com/global/, because I checked your site and I saw that settings.xml is missing.

http://www.bettymekonnen.com/index_tagcloud.html – Link to my tag cloud issues. I cannot seen to get this to work. I Cannot get tagcloud to show up. Not sure if I have this coded properly… I put the program files in folder tagcloud under public. Followed the directions which seem simple enough, but the page comes up without the Tag Cloud.

<html xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml” lang=“en” xml:lang=“en”> <head> <title></title> <meta http-equiv=“Content-Type” content=“text/html; charset=iso-8859-1” />

<script type=“text/javascript” src=“swfobject.js”></script> <script type=“text/javascript”> var flashvars = {}; flashvars.folderPath = “www.bettymekonnen.com/tagcloud/”; var params = {}; params.scale = “noscale”; params.salign = “tl”; params.wmode = “transparent”; var attributes = {}; swfobject.embedSWF(“www.bettymekonnen.com/tagcloud/tagcloudFX.swf”, “DivTagCloudFX”, “700”, “500”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params, attributes); </script> </head> <body> <div style=“text-align:center”> <div id=“DivTagCloudFX”> <a href=“http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer”> <img src=“http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif” alt=“Get Adobe Flash player” /> </a> </div> </body>
</html>

Is there something missing? The files are in /.../tagcloud per the recomendation. All I get is the adobe button flash.

Hi,

Some of your images have UPCASE extensions (JPG) and in the files thumbs.xml and big.xml they are set with .jpg. Please make sure to set the path to the images correctly.
