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.

I have two pages (page1.html and page2.html). Page1.html is gallery.html from archive.
If I want use gallery in page2.html but with other photos, where I can set folder for gallery on page 2. How I can do this task?

Sorry for my English) Thank

You can create two folders and place the same component in each one. You can change the images for each one separately. Than, as the tutorial from the top of the page, you can use

flashvars.folderPath = "folder1/";
for the first page and
flashvars.folderPath = "folder2/";
for the second page.

On wordpress there is a correction to do
<?php imagescrollerfx_echo_embed_code(”“); ?>
instead of
<?php imagescrollerfx_echo_embed_code(”“\\); ?>
