The previous tutorial in our working with images and videos in Concrete5 series covered adding a video. In this guide we will explain how to add flash content in concrete5. This is useful when you want to display flash files on a page. Flash can be used for banners, videos, and even interactive games among other things, which can make a website more fun and interesting.

Add Flash Content:

  1. After logging into your dashboard, in the site menu select the page that you want to add content to. For this example I am selecting the Test page.
    add content1
  2. On the top left, roll your mouse over edit and select edit this page from the menu. This will allow the fields in the page to be edited.
    add content2
  3. Now, highlight and click the area you would like to add content to, and select add block from the list.
    add content4
  4. On the add block menu select flash content, this will bring up the add flash content menu.
  5. Select choose file, then click the check box next to the file on the list. If the file is not on the list, browse and upload a flash file first.
  6. Click the drop-down box titled '**With Selected' and click choose, this will bring you back to the add flash content menu, you will see the file listed here now.
  7. On the add flash content menu select your quality, higher quality videos may take longer to load. Then  select the minimum flash version, the default version is 8.0. This sets the requirement for them to play the flash file.

    add flash
  8. Click the add button on the bottom right. Concrete5 will not display the flash file in edit mode.

  9. Hover over editing with your mouse, and select publish my edits to save what you have done.
  10. move block4

    Congratulations, you will now see your flash file displayed on your page!

    add flash
    Continue to the next series which will discuss working with background images in the Concrete5 dashboard.
