How to add Flash SWF file into Godaddy Website Builder

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 public folder.

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 Website Builder

In your Godaddy Website Builder dashboard, select the page you want to add the Flash, then click the button Add HTML code.

Double click the added HTML box then enter the following HTML code:

<embed src="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/220044905/cloud.swf" quality="high"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="480" height="125" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" allowScriptAccess="always"></embed>

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.
