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.

Hello..

I have a problem with the internet explorer. When I click on the banner, displays the pop-up warning. How can I prevent that?

For an answer I would be very grateful.

I have copied the following into the target area of a webpage but nothing happened. There is a blank long thin table space, that’s all.

<div id=“DivDockGalleryFX”></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(“DockGalleryFX.swf”, “DivDockGalleryFX”, “600”, “400”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params);
</script>

I had copied all the files (except the index.html) into the website folder. “Big” and “Thumb” folders are under “Image folder” with your default images for testing.

Please advise.

its almost like the WEEBLY site is over the top of it or something because its not even showing it as flash when i try to right click on the area where the embedded html/flash is.. which is directly under the menu in a large are just fyi

FlashXML Support

You have to make sure you add the embedding code in a section where you’re allowed to add custom HTML code. Ask for support from weebly to learn how to add custom HTML code because we can’t help you with that.

So like before I have it working on my hosted site.. I add this code to the custom html

<div id=“DivCoverFlowFX”></div>
<script type=“text/javascript” src=“http://www.sanantoniomma.com/image-scroller/swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”> var flashvars = {}; var params = {}; params.base = “http://www.sanantoniomma.com/image-scroller/”; params.scale = “noscale”; params.salign = “tl”; params.wmode = “transparent”; params.allowFullScreen = “true”; params.allowScriptAccess = “always”; swfobject.embedSWF(“http://www.sanantoniomma.com/image-scroller/CoverFlowFX.swf”, “DivCoverFlowFX”, “760”, “320”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params);
</script>

Nothing Happens

I tried this way

<div id=“DivCoverFlowFX”></div>
<script type=“text/javascript” src=“image-scroller/swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”> var flashvars = {}; var params = {}; params.base = “http://www.sanantoniomma.com/image-scroller/”; params.scale = “noscale”; params.salign = “tl”; params.wmode = “transparent”; params.allowFullScreen = “true”; params.allowScriptAccess = “always”; swfobject.embedSWF(“image-scroller/CoverFlowFX.swf”, “DivCoverFlowFX”, “760”, “320”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params);
</script>

nothing happens

Here is the site with embed code on it
