How to embed Flash and Javascript Files In HTML posts

If people say “Pictures speak a thousand words“, then it would not be wrong to say that “Flash and JavaScript speak a million words“.

To make a successful and attractive blog, instead of plain and simple HTML of 1980’s you should occasionally add flash(.swf) files and of course must include javascript files to your posts and sidebars.
The process is very simple, almost as simple as adding an image in HTML, the only difference is there are a little more lines of code to remember/copy 🙂

For embeding Flash Files:
First of all embed the flash content (file), to your Googlepages.com account or anywhere which gives a direct hotlink to the file, and of course also offers a good amount of bandwidth. That is why I prefer Googlepages.com fro this because Google never sets restriction on bandwidth, although web space available per account is limited to 100MB.

Paste these code lines, where ever you want to embed the flash file.

<object classid=”clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000″
codebase=”http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0″ width=”700″
height=”322″>
<param name=”movie” value=”Name_Of_File.swf”>
<param name=”quality” value=”high”>
<embed src=”http://DIRECT_LINK_OF_YOUR_FLASH_FILE.swf” quality=”high”
pluginspage=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”700″
height=”322″></embed>
</object>

Note: Replace everything in the blue color, with appropriate links and values.
In case your visitors do not have flash installed/enabled in their browser, they will be promted for installing it from Adobe.com

Note: In the code above there is both an <embed> tag and an <object> tag. This is because the <object> tag is recognized by Internet Explorer, and Netscape recognizes the <embed> tag and ignores the <object> tag.

How To Embed JavaScript into HTML posts

JavaScript code is typically embedded into an HTML document using the SCRIPT tag.

<script language=”JavaScript”>
<!–
document.write(“Hello World!”);
//–>
</script>

The LANGUAGE attribute is optional, but recommended.

<script language=”JavaScript1.2″>

Another attribute of the SCRIPT tag, SRC, can be used to include an external file containing JavaScript code rather than code embedded into the HTML:

<script language=”JavaScript” src=”DIRECT_LINK_OF_JAVASCRIPT_FILE.js”>
</script>

Well just use any .swf file, like this game:

http://game.lansin.com/flash/3d.swf

and REPLACE the blue line in the code (http://DIRECT_LINK_OF_YOUR_FLASH_FILE.swf) with the above link and use it in your blog…that’s it !

Yes Miky, that is certainly possible in Blogger, read this tutorial on How to show widgets only in Hompage or in any specific page
