html format: embed and object tags

Postby nicollb » Fri Oct 07, 2005 11:55 am

I am using OJS2.0.2 - and I have an html galley with an embedded flash object... which doesn't display.

How to I link to flash? It doesn't work like straight up images, as best I can tell. Do I have to put the flash (swf) file somewhere outside of the OJS tree and point to it? or is there a way to upload it like images?

You should be able to use the HTML galley's images feature for anything that can be referred to with a src="..." attribute; this includes <embed> tags. Please make sure you're using full quotes (") on either side of the src attribute's value.

If it's still not working, check the link generated by OJS2 manually to see if it's valid.
