How to add flash content to blogger/blogspot site?

  • Create your flash content in adobe flash or any other automated menu or button generator.

  • Copy the code(The code containing the object and embed tags after the content has been generated) into the html editor of the post. The code looks like the following :-

  • <object id="blink-block" width="150" height="27"
    <param name="movie" value="blah.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="scale" value="noscale"/>
    <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed name="blink-block" src="blah.swf" quality="high" scale="noscale"
    bgcolor="#000000" wmode="transparent" width="150" height="27"
    type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" />

  • As blogger does not provide you with file hosting space and you have to save your shock- wave file object (.swf) somewhere, you can use google pages [link] (no new sign ups are allowed) that provides you 100 mb space for uploading the files or you may use any other hosting service. This is the different step when it comes to displaying a flash content on your site or the blogger platform .

  • Now in the embed tag replace the src property value with the link where you have uploaded the flash object(.swf). For example: if it was earlier <embed src="abc.swf"> and you have uploaded it to then you should change the src the tag to <
    embed src="">

  • That's it, now the flash content can be seen in your blogger site. I have added a simple button below .
