Solved uploading swf files

Post by swtchocolate on 13th March 2013, 5:46 pm

Where can I upload swf files to use on my forum. I tried one site, but because the site they use to allow to view it does not work, so my game turned up white instead of the game coming up.

Register on a free hosting site like bravenet.com & then upload the swf file there.

Here it will add as a attachment.

It cannot be used in a html code to display it. Is this a question or a suggestion?

Or you could use dropbox.com ... substitute the www.dropbox.com to dl-web.dropbox.com(file location here)to download files ..instructions are on the site and it hosts SWF files Smile eg

Code:
 <center><embed src="https://dl-web.dropbox.com/get/Photos/Sample%20Album/simon%27s%20blue.swf?w=AACqVQOzhPSbHEsvmKR_AqIGsFRhaTDsUeV6LQYok9IX5w" width="600" height="90" /></center>

Just click on the SWF file in your dropbox web folder and it will show up on your browser ...Then copy the URL from the top of the browser as an address for the file Smile

it doesnt matter, i fixed my problem. you can move it. let people know that in order to add swf files, dont upload it via the forum but use dropbox. upload to dropbox, open up the file and copy, go to your forum and it the flash icon and enter the url of the dropbox swf file. it will appear on the forum.
