Flash affiliate link in widget not working

Post by Ascot on October 24th 2011, 11:56 am

I have an affiliate banner that I want to appear as a 250x250 widget. Its a dynamic banner.

The code I have been given for the link is

<object width="250" height="250">
<param name="movie" value="https://www.whatever.com/flash/external/others/standard.250x250.swf?language=en&promotion=wb_poker_promo_2&clickTAG=http://www.whatever.com/poker?campaign_code=MPF-Forum">
<embed src="https://www.whatever.com/flash/external/others/standard.250x250.swf?language=en&promotion=wb_poker_promo_2&clickTAG=http://www.whatever.com/poker?campaign_code=MPF-Forum"></embed>
</object>

But when I put this in, nothing is displayed. just a blank box. What code should I be putting into the widget? I've tried using the [flash] ... [/flash] command around it but that doesnt work either. Help!

The link to the flash swf in your code doesn't work, which is why it displays a blank box.

The code I gave is an example of the precise format given to me by the company for whom I am an affiliate.
The actual name of the company I changed to "whatever.com". So of course that wouldn't work. What does the forumotion software need the format of this code to look like for a flash banner?

The url of the flash file should end in swf format.
