Details Instructions for Adding Flash to Website

Upload your File

1. Go to EZ-FileManager



2. Click Upload



3. Find your SWF file (the flash file) and click Open.



4. Push Upload



Add Flash to Page

Now that your file is uploaded we just need to add it to a page. Find the page you want to place the file and then do the following.

1. Add a new block.
2. Choose HTML block type
3. Push Next Step


4. Change the file name  to your file.
5. Set the width and height as shown below.
6. Push Submit


7. You might not see the flash right away.  Don't worry, it's probably working. We just need to preview it.


8. Click View > Preview Current


9. You should now see your flash playing. 



Troubleshooting

My flash doesn't show up, even on preview current?

1. Check to make sure your file is spelled correctly.  It's case sensitive, so make sure your capital and lower case letters match.

2. Make sure your SWF file is in the same directory as your webpage.

3. Try adding an absolute link. For example: http://eznetu.com/sample-slideshow.swf  instead of just sample-slideshow.swf.
