What program are you using to create the html documents? Ie Dreamweaver, Frontpage, etc? Is that where you're having the issue? Getting them to show up on a webpage?

When you are ready to combine the swf with a webpage document. You choose

File > Publish Settings > Make sure "flash" and "html" are checked... then you can edit any flash or html settings on their tabs.

It will export an swf and html document, which will have generated code: <head> and <body tags. inbetween the body tags will be the entire coding you need to copy for your swf file. That can be pasted in another html document... the swf coding is between the <object> tags just for reference

OR...

if you use dreamweaver, you can insert a swf as an option, and it will do the coding for you
Insert > Media > Flash

and that's about it.

can you upload the files separately to your server and post their links here...

I'm not sure what you're asking for because if you follow the steps i posted earlier... you should be able to do exactly what you want to do.

Flash generates a swf and html file together. the html file contains the swf file coding. if you want to put that coding into another html document, you need to open the html document which was generated by flash (that contains your swf file)... copy the text between the <object> tags, and then paste that into your other html document wherever you want the file to appear. i'm not sure if you have tables or anything else. so it's hard for me to tell you exactly what to do, when i can't see the files.

the swf file is flash generated....

okay, you are using Adobe Flash CS3...correct?
- If so, I haven't used Adobe's version of flash yet, Only Macromedia Flash 8, which I believe was their last version before they were purchased by adobe. However, I'm sure the same type of engine is used.

When you create the file in flash, you need to.... Here are the steps.

1. Go up to FILE > Publish Settings
2. Make sure "FLASH" and "HTML" are selected.
3. The program should export 2 files to the folder where you saved the original .FLA file
4. One file is a .swf
5. One file is a .html
6. Open the .html file with NOTEPAD
7. Between the <body> and </body> tags, copy ALL the coding... this is the coding for the swf file to be put within a webpage
8. Open your webpage in NOTEPAD, DREAMWEAVER, FRONTPAGE, or whatever you are using to code the page... and PASTE the coding you just copied to wherever you want the swf file to be placed.
9. Save the file and open it in a browser to make sure it worked.

If it's not working, you're not copying the code correctly.

Since you're making a website, I'm assuming you already have a server to host the domain. Copy your files to the server, the SWF file and your webpage you want it to go into... then copy the url's to each in here.

For instance.

www.mydomain.com/name.swf

www.mydomain.com/webpage.html

Then I can look at your files. I prefer not to have files sent to me, as I joined this board because of a virus issue. Plus, this is something you need to learn how to do yourself! :whistling: If I do it for you, you'll continue to have the problem. I've laid out all the steps for you. Just follow them one by one.

You have to be more specific when you're asking for help.

what program are you using? test movie in flash?

Upload the files to a server and post the url so someone can see what the issue is. it's hard to diagnose a problem we can't see.
