Hi,

Yes you can use HTML object tags to markup the embedded file, a bit like you would do for an image:
https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_object.asp

The example code to enter in RapidWeaver would be:

<object width="400" height="50" data="http://example.com/bookmark.swf"></object>

If you are using the Stacks plugin for RapidWeaver, then there are various free and paid stack elements that can do the same. Run a search for ‘RapidWeaver embed stack’ and see what you find.

Of note, SWF is considered rather antiquated nowadays. There are a growing list of web browsers and devices where it does not work. Personally I’d only consider using SWF in public-facing websites in extreme circumstances, as a temporary measure.

Hope this helps.

Hi Will,
thanks, reading your comment is great, but when I try nothing works:

  1. first I’ve tried to put in a stack html
    < object width=“400” height=“300” data=“http://www.tmno.ch/resources/1.swf”>
  2. next http://www.tmno.ch/resources/1.swf in Joe Workman’s flash embed and responsive embed
    I should be happy if you can indicate what I do wrong.
    Thanks
