  • Add a Flash Banner?

    How would I go about doing this, I am relaunching my site, and have installed cmps in it also, but I wanna know how to make the main forums banner a flash banner instead of just a jpg/gif

    Any help appreciated

    You would need to remove the HTML code for the title image from the header template, and replace it with an embed tag to call the flash object:

    Code:
    <embed src="URL OR PATH TO FLASH OBJECT" />
    Here is a site that details some of the other attributes of the embed tag.

        I don't know if it works with flash objects, but this is how you would normally "link" something:

        Code:
        <a href="index.php"><embed src="URL OR PATH TO FLASH OBJECT" /></a>

          ...or you can turn the entire Flash movie into a clickable button.

            Thanks for the reply guys. Jake, I tried the code link you suggested, which made sense, but apparently doesn't work with a flash object.
            VTech44, how do I make the flash movie a clickable button. That is what I'm looking for. Thanks.

              I'm not sure how to do it through HTML, but I usually do it through Flash itself. Instead of creating your animation sequense on the main scene, you create a new movie symbol in your library, then add an action script to it when you insert it to the main scene. The action script will be an onclick action, and getURL to where ever you want it to go.

                  You can specify height and width attributes in the embed tag:

                  Code:
                  <embed src="URL OR PATH TO FLASH OBJECT" height="Y" width="X" />
