How to insert flash slideshow into my own website?

1. Using theme in Basic tab

After creating a photo slideshow under the Basic tab, upload the generated SWF Flash file from Flash Slideshow Maker output folder to your website and use the following html code as an example to insert the SWF object into your html code.

 

<object width="550" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="demo.swf">
<embed src="demo.swf" width="550" height="400">

</embed>
</object>

Normally, if you insert the SWF in HTML editor, it will apply the correct path of SWF automatically.

 

Note:

1. *demo.swf is name of the generated SWF Flash file. Here, you also need to pay attention to the path of SWF file if you put your web page and SWF in different folders. In such case, there are two places you need to add correct path before the SWF file, as both the MOVIE and SRC attributes specify the location (URL) of the movie to be loaded.

2. The code you need to insert the SWF into your web page can be found from the output HTML document as well. You can use text or HTML editors like Notepad, Frontpage or Dreamweaver to open the HTML document from the output folder, copy the code section from "<object>" to "</object>" into your own HTML page. If you are using Dreamwaver or Frontpage, you should switch from design view to code view.
