Godaddy Website Builder is a popular online HTML editor which
enables you to easily create your own professional website.
But its new version 7 does not support Flash anymore. This
tutorial will guide you how to insert a Flash banner to Godaddy
Website Builder by using the free web hosting of DropBox.
Step 1: Make Flash SWF file.
Firstly, please make your Flash file (.swf) with Adobe Flash
Studio or Flash Banner Maker software, for example Aleo
Flash Intro Banner Maker at http://www.aleosoft.com
Step 2: Upload Flash SWF file to your Dropbox
Since Godaddy Website Builder v7 does not support uploading
your own Flash SWF file, you need to upload the SWF file to
another web hosting server.
In this tutorial, we use the free service provided by Dropbox.
You need to upload the SWF file to the Public folder
of your Dropbox account.
The Dropbox Public folder is a special folder in your Dropbox
account. You can read the tutorial here: What
is the Dropbox Public folder for?
New created Dropbox account no longer has a Public folder
by default, you can read the above tutorial and enable it.
After uploading the SWF file to your Dropbox Public folder,
click and select the SWF file, then click the button Copy
public link, copy and save the link address. We will use the
address in next step.
You can now open the address directly in your web browser,
the Flash banner should display in your web browser. If the
Flash does not show up, you need to go back and check this
step has been done correctly.
Step 3: Embed Flash banner to your Godaddy
In your Godaddy Website Builder dashboard, select the page
you want to add the Flash, then click the button Add HTML
Double click the added HTML box then enter the following
You need to change the src value to your own link address
which you get in above step, change the width and height to
that of your Flash file.
You can then adjust the size of the HTML box by dragging
the grips, and make sure the whole Flash banner is visible.
Publish your website, the Flash banner should be up and running.
