1. New Software Notice alert!

    The new Web Graphics Creator (version 4.0) will be out soon.

    For now, version 3.0 is still active and works great on most Windows machines. It no longer runs on Macs using Lion or greater... (but the new version will fix this)

    So hang in there! It's almost done!

    Hi WLS...
    Welcome to the forum.

    I don't know too much about Publisher (I'm a Dreamweaver fanatic myself) ... but there should be a button that allows you to import a Flash (.swf) file.

    If so, click it and bring in your saved button (button.swf).

    That should be all you need to do.

    Hi WLS. Marc is correct... (it happens from time to time :) From publisher menu go to <insert <object < flash object. This is true for 2007 publisher, if you have an older version, and this doesn't work, i might suggest downloading a trial version of publisher. It's probably good for 90-180 days depending on how they have it setup.

    Let me know how it turns out.

    Hey, I just realized that some hosting services have a built-in site builder in the "value apps" section, depending on who your host is... This might help you out more in the long run.

    Ok, i just tried it and it worked for me... Go to file > insert > object > choose create from file > browse to your swf file > hit enter....

    Let me know if this doesn't work.. Or, better yet if it does :)

    Here is a link. I just focued on getting it onto the page... This link explains how to embed it into the page... You need the code snippet from your flash button, which will look something like this <object "flash button" info </object.

    Then just follow the instructions from http://msmvps.com/blogs/dbartosik/pages/81253.aspx
