Publishing Your Flash Website - 2

Publishing Your Flash Website - 2
Step 3. Flash Tab Settings. Click on the Flash tab. We will be publishing for Flash Player 7 so choose this from the Version drop-down list. We do not want anyone to be able to reverse your .swf file back to an .fla file and steal all your hard work. So in the Options section, put a check in the box next to Protect From Import. We will keep the rest of the default settings for this tab.

Version: Flash Player 7
Options: Protect From Import

Now click the Publish button and Flash will generate these files. You will see an indicator as Flash is working. When it is finished, click OK to close the dialog box.

Step 4. Test And Upload. Flash should have put the files in your folder. You will also see a small alternate.gif image for the download link on the MySite_alternate.html page. Finally, there will be a flash_detection.swf file that will be used by the index.html file to detect if there is a Flash Player. You will upload these generated files along with the external text files and the Portfolio.swf file that we created earlier. Here is a complete list of the files you will need to upload to your web site.


If you would like to test your website a final time before you upload to the web, click on the index.html file to view your movie. You can also click on the MySite_alternate.html file to view the download message. You can customize this message by changing the HTML code for this webpage. You can use any FTP program to upload your files to your website.
