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.

What needs to be edited so that the image scroller will scale with the browser. When I zoom in or zoom out in any browser, the images scroller does not get bigger or smaller. What needs to be edited? Our website example with the scroller image code already injected is http:// www.byjules.com

I installed the Polaroid Gallery FX on my site that uses ET Titan engine 1.1 CMS. I can not click the same picture twice to bring it to the forground. After I does what it is supposed to it go back down and when I click on it, it just kind of jumps. Any suggestions?

Hi,

You’re using a modified version of the swf. Make sure you use the one you purchased and it will work ok.

Hi

1. I’m looking at getting the commercial licence ($36) do I get access to all the various galleries e.g. carousel, basic scroller etc or is just 1.
2. Can you save the file as .swf file so I can place it in dreamweaver (currently using CS2).
3. Can I use the package on other websites I may create or is only licenced for 1 website?

Many thanks
Naomi

Hi,

All the basic files are free but for the other components (FX) you have to purchase license to use them. Each of our products contains archives with a swf file and the answer to your third question, you have to buy a license for each website depending on the website type(commercial or personal).

e.g: if you have a commercial website you have to purchase a commercial license; if you have a personal website you have to purchase a personal license.

Do you have a question?
