Hi,
I see FLASHSPRING has a publish-to-web feature but only in FTP. I usually publish direct from FrontPage 2003 to http.

How do I resolve publishing?

Do I save the file as for a PC or Network server, within a folder in my web (local) and then create a link on the page where I want the movie to appear and then publish the lot from local PC to Web Server?

My point is... If I FTP the movie to the web server, how am I going to place the movie within the page where I want it to be?

Thanks

Luis

Hello Luis,

First, when you publish presentation, in FlashSpring settings check "Generate HTML file". After publishinhg, it'll create a page with some html code inside. Also, upload the output flash file (.swf) to your server, so that it'd have a path like this: http://www.yoursite.com/yourflash.swf

Then, open the html page (which you got after FlashSpring converted your presentation) for editing and find there <object> code part. It should be looking like this:

<object id="presentation" width="944" height="643" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="yourflash.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<embed src="Привет.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="944" height="643" name="presentation" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
</object>

Now, in Frontpage, switch to Split mode or to Coder mode. You need it to modify the source codes of your pages. Then, insert <object> part in the place you need to have this flash file displayed. The main part here for you will be <param name="movie">, this parameter is responsible for a path to your flash movie file. While you're working at your local computer, you will need to change this:
<param name="movie" value="yourflash.swf" />

to something like it:

<param name="movie" value="temp/yourflash.swf" /> - all depends in what folder at your local computer you have the flash movie stored. Or you can simply point Frontpage to your flash movie and it'll insert it automatically.

After you complete working at your page at local computer, you should upload it to your site, in the same way you did it before. But with one change.

<param name="movie" value="yourflash.swf" /> should be changed to <param name="movie" value="http://www.yoursite.com/yourflash.swf" />. Now, when somebody enters your site, the browser will call "movie" from the folder you indicated in the path.

I hope i described it clear. In any case, if you don't understand something, in whole or a part, let me know. We'd be glad to help you.
