    I am just making ads practicing. what I don't get is when you export your ad and preview in the web browser.. it shows your ads along with the one I just made.. I have a website maker art explosion publisher pro silver that allows me to make websites
    and preview them.. now I can take the source code of your preveiw site. and add it to this program as HTML.. but then I preview again in my web browser through my program and I cannot get your code off.. I am not good with Html so here is the code maybe you can help fix this and show me where my ad starts and stops...

    Please explain what you did also so the next one I know what I am doing... my program makes it own folders when I send them to my server so I do not have to do it myself.. like frontpage etc...

    I knows its been a little while since you posted this but the entire set of code you have there is the preview page for the ad you created.. If I understand you correctly you want to remove the ad and place it in another page somewhere within the html of another document or file. Here is the code you need:

    <p>
    <object classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com
    /pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"
    width="234" height="60" id="movie" align="">
    <param name="movie" value="small-ad.swf">
    <embed src="small-ad.swf" quality="high" width="234"
    height="60" name="movie" align="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
    plug inspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
    </object>
    </p>

    The two areas I have highlighted in red is what you named your file or ad. Make sure where ever it is that you upload your .swf file (your ad file) that you make sure the areas in red reflect its location on your server. For example if your .swf file is located on your server at mysite.com/my-ads/small-ad.swf then you would change the area in red to reflect where you uploaded the file to. If you upload your .swf file to the same folder that the page is where you are displaying your ad then you can leave the red text as it is now.

    The areas in blue is where you can change the height and width of your ad.. You will want to set these to whatever preset size ad it was you chose in the Ad creator such as 125x125 or what ever size it is that you chose.
