Try using the flash code in your portal.

ACP=>Modules Tab=>Portal & Widgets=>Portal management=>Structure{any portal}=>Create new custom block=>Add info and code=>Save=>Add the custom block and drag it to your portal structure=>Save

Thanks for the game link uchiha_itachi.

That code creates a table with a pic-link which will take you away from your site to mini-clip. You can [flash] or <embed> the game .swf and
play it on the spot -without leaving your forum.


Code:
[flash(450,400)]http://www.miniclip.com/games/alien-clones/en/alien_clones.swf[/flash]
Code:
<center><embed src="http://www.miniclip.com/games/alien-clones/en/alien_clones.swf" width="450" height="400">
Very good

RoNo I put your code on my site and that game works perfectly. But I try to replace your URL with a URL of a different game but it doesn't work. I know it doesn't work because it isn't in .swf form and I was wondering how do I convert the game into .swf? Also if it takes a while is there a code in where I can just put the normal URL into it and it would work? Please help.

What game are you trying to add? Can I see the code or a link?

Don't bother trying to convert games... there are lots to choose from.

I use the Firefox Browser add-on "NoScript" to block .swf's from auto-loading
that way you can right click the game before it loads and get the .swf url.

Yeah, As a Sidebar widget, or add a Portal and re-name it "Games", and you can put some games there.

what do you mean by new home page?
widgets are ok to put them in but if you have them show through the whole forum it's most likely going to make everything offset. you can always add them to your portal and have it centered but then it's on the portal page.

if you want it on your home page index the best place would be to add to your home page message.

admin panel>display>homepage>Generalities

just place the code in homepage message and hit save.

probably be best with center tags if you don't have them in there already?

<center> </center>

then you can always add to templates (footers) if using phpbb2 or punbb.
That would bring it up on every page or you can always add as a forums description or even create an html page and set that as your home page and have the game plus other things in there. so there's definitely a few places you can add it.

hope that helps a lil.

Hi!

Have you created an HTML page having games on it?
Or you want to redirect your users to the game site when clicked on the game image?

You can create an HTML page where you put many games to play.
When your members click 'Arcade' in navbar, they should go to the Games page, right?

First of all, create an HTML page and put games or game links in it.
(Admin CP > Modules > HTML Page Management > Create New HTML Page)

Now, to add arcade link to navbar, Admin CP > Display > Headers & Navigation > Add Customized Menu.
In Redirection URL, put link to the games page that you created.

There are several ways to link to your game... it needs a location first.

You could:

Place the game on a separate portal and link to it with your nav button or a pic

Like this [ click ]




To do this:

Create a widget with the Alien Clones game .swf
Code:
<center><embed src="http://www.miniclip.com/games/alien-clones/en/alien_clones.swf" width="545" height="490">

  • Create a new portal
  • Remove all widgets
  • Drag/drop/add your new game widget to the portal (center row)
  • Go to portal preview
  • Copy the portal address without the session ID #

Example:
(portal preview address)
http: //ur site .forumotion.net/portal.forum?pid=1&sid=2c5e2337a805ee08ed9831298f3d990f

Remove the Session ID (&sid=) section and leave the Portal ID number (&pid=)

so it looks like this example
http: //ur site .forumotion.net/portal.forum?pid=1

Attach the "Game Portal" address to your Nav Button

Creating a new Nav Button
ACP, Display, Headers & navigation
Add a customized menu

  • Menu: Name of nav link
  • Picture: Url for button image
  • Text: Name of nav link (leave blank if a picture is used)
  • Redirection URL: Your New Game Portal Url
  • Set the rights for your new nav link (who can view: members, guests?)


And/Or you could create several "single game portals" (as explained above)
and create an Html page (as ankillien mentioned) with pic-links to these game portals

Like this [ click ]
