Step 3: Generate your banner code

To display your Flash banner on the web and and "link" it to the advertised web page, you need a specific HTML code. If you have successfully uploaded your banner SWF file to your web server at the previous step, the SWF file now has its own URL (also known as "web address"). For example, if your domain name is "www.example.com", and you put the "demo_728x90.swf" file into a directory called "images" on your web server, the SWF file URL will be: "http://www.example.com/images/demo_728x90.swf". Use the SWF file URL in the form below to generate your banner HTML code.

Tip: if you are not sure about exact URL of your SWF file, please check with your hosting provider.

The click-through URL (also known as "banner link") is a web address of the page where people will "land" when they click on your Flash banner ad.

Tip: Leave this field empty to use your banner as a "logo", ie without the mouseover "hand" cursor.

The following parameters are optional. Adjust them, if desired, and click the "Get banner code" button below.

Tip: to avoid graphics distortion, keep original 728 x 90 aspect ratio (proportion) between width and height.

Get banner code

Scroll to the top of the page to preview your banner. Using your favorite HTML or simple text editor (such as Windows Notepad), paste the banner code into the HTML source of a web page where you want your banner to appear. Save the page and upload it to your web server. Open the web page with the banner code in your browser to view your Flash banner.

Tips, tricks and questions
  • How to change the banner link?
    The easiest option: just bookmark this very page in your web browser and use the banner code generator whenever you wish to update your banner link.
    Experienced users can also change the banner link at any moment by manually editing the banner code. The banner link "value" is shown in bold red in the code example below. Replace both occurrences of this value with a new link ("click-through URL") for your ad. Do not forget that the click-through URL must begin with "http://"
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,5,0,175"
    width="728" height="90">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.yourwebsite.com/demo_728x90.swf" />
    <param name=FlashVars value="clickTAG=http://www.example.com" />
    <param name="menu" value="false" />
    <param name="scale" value="exactfit" />
    <embed src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/demo_728x90.swf"
    FlashVars="clickTAG=http://www.example.com"
    width="728" height="90" menu="false" scale="exactfit"
    type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

  • How to use this Flash movie as a web site logo?
    You can display your Flash banner as a web site logo or a header image - that is, without the mouseover "hand" cursor. Just leave the "Enter your ad click-through URL:" field in the code generator form empty. Experienced users can deactivate banner link by manually removing the part of the code shown in bold red in the following example.
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,5,0,175"
    width="728" height="90">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.yourwebsite.com/demo_728x90.swf" />
    <param name=FlashVars value="clickTAG=http://www.example.com" />
    <param name="menu" value="false" />
    <param name="scale" value="exactfit" />
    <embed src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/demo_728x90.swf"
    FlashVars="clickTAG=http://www.example.com"
    width="728" height="90" menu="false" scale="exactfit"

  • How to resize my banner?
    Default size of your Flash banner is 728 x 90 pixels (the Internet Advertising Bureau standard "Leaderboard"). You can change - to some extent - the default width/height by editing the "width" and "height" values in the banner code (values are expressed in pixels). To avoid graphics distortion, we advise to keep original 728 x 90 aspect ratio between width and height.
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,5,0,175"
    width="728" height="90">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.yourwebsite.com/demo_728x90.swf" />
    <param name=FlashVars value="clickTAG=http://www.example.com" />
    <param name="menu" value="false" />
    <param name="scale" value="exactfit" />
    <embed src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/demo_728x90.swf"
    FlashVars="clickTAG=http://www.example.com"
    width="728" height="90" menu="false" scale="exactfit"
    type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

    As always, you can use the banner code generator on this page to easily change the size of your banner. Ok
  • HELP! All I see is just a blank box with white space in it!
    It means that your banner HTML code can't find the Flash SWF file to display. Make sure you have uploaded your banner SWF file along with the page(s) containing the banner HTML code. If the problem persists, contact us with exact web address of the page where you are using the banner HTML code.
    Ok
  • I can't open the SWF file on my computer!
    There is no need to "open" the SWF file on your computer. Just closely follow the instructions on your download page to put your banner on the web. After pasting the banner HTML code into a web page, open that page in your browser to view your Flash banner.
    Ok
