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:

- the swfobject.js file is located at this address:

- the product's files (XMLs, assets and images) are located in the Banner folder:

- the 3DBannerFX.swf file is located in the product's folder:

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

You can also use absolute paths like in this example:

params.base = "";

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.

still not working. When I go to it doesn`t work but when I go to without the index.php, it works well. I already added this line flashvars.folderPath = “”; , but still not working.

I just checked your website and because you’re using the slash (/) after the index.php in the links to change the language, you have these errors. When you change the language the banner is searched inside the index.php folder because of the slash.

Dear Developer,

I have successfully installed “Banner and Rotator”. Everything look ok except the second bottom navigator button from the right was not working. It suppose to zoom in photo.

Appreciate your professional advise how to make the button work.

Thank You Very Much!

You have to add this line:

params.allowfullscreen = "true";

in the embedding code of the SWF from your HTML file.
