    Hi Everybody. I am new to this software. Particularly the flash banner creator. I created one but I am not able to make it work in iweb. I don't really understand why. Anyway I was expecting to see the codes so I can copy and paste it to the htm snippet. How may I do it? I check a tutorial site that was recommended but it started from the premise that I am using idisk which I am not. So that tip is totally useless.

    Help somebody? thanks.

    hi Jro.
    Welcome to the forum.

    Can iWeb import a Flash file (.swf) yet?
    Last I heard, it couldn't. However, perhaps with iLife '08 you can now do this.

    Make sure you have the latest version of The Flash Ad Creator (v2.5): http://www.flashadcreator.com/updates

    Then, make sure iWeb can import a .swf file. If so - iWeb will create the code for you.

    iWeb is the only product I don't use from iLife '08 :)

    (by the way, have you used Time machine yet? It's Awesome)

    need help

    Hi Marc: Thank you for your answer and for welcoming me to the forum. Iweb can't import .swf. It has to be done through a widget that allows you to insert the html code. I tried using the html page that is created but, it contain other information that is not related to the banner. Is there any way I can insert the codes to make it work? I would like to use the banner as a cover to the website, so maybe I can import the code directly into the web host server. But how do I tell the flash page to open the welcome page after presenting the website?
    If it is possible to upload the flash directly to the web host server I would like to know how.
    Thanks.

    Marc: about time machine, I am still using tiger. I will migrate to leopard through the new mackbook, and then I will buy another copy for my actual computer.
