Putting Flash on a Site:
You will need to have a Bronze account or higher in order to place a Flash file on your site. You will need to login to your cPanel using the username and password given after your website account was completed. Once you are logged into your cPanel, you need to find the File Manager link. Click on it and it will open a new window. Don't change any settings, but click Go.
The use of Flash animation has increased dramatically over the last couple of years. As a result, most of your visitors are able to view flash files. Well used flash can take your website to the next level; however, as with audio, the use of flash files can sometimes go a little “overboard”. Good taste should be the rule.
To insert a Flash file, in the page editor, click where you would like the Flash file to be located within your page and then click the "Insert / edit embedded media" icon. Click the folder icon next to the "File/URL" field (Figure 1) to access your Asset Manager.
In the top, right hand corner of the Asset Manager (Figure 2) make sure that "Flash" is selected from the drop-down menu. This will allow you to select the desired file from your upload list. Select the file you want to use and click "OK" button to return to the Media dialog box.(Figure 2)
You can further adjust setting for your file by clicking on the “Advanced” tab in the Media dialog. There are two sections under the “Advanced” tab, the “advance” section and the “options” section. (Figure 3)
The second section is the “options” section. The options under this section will change depending on the type of file you selected under the “Type” section under the General tab. (Figure 7)
Once you have selected the settings you wish to use, click the “Insert” button . You should now see the audio player in the page editor. Finally, click the “Save” button in the top, left corner of the page editor.
*Tip: You can quickly edit your media file by right clicking on the file within your page and selecting “Edit embedded media”.
