Inserting Flash from the wysiwyg editor

Hi all,

What is the best way to enable editors to insert flash(object tags) in the wysiwyg editor? Looking for something that will provide the same experience as inserting images... 

 

Cheers!

hi,

In the demo templates there is an example of Flash usage, but as episerver properties. You could create your own editor Plug-in with similar functionallity. Look at this example in the sdk to get started,

Have you succeeded with this? I have tried to do the same by creating a custom Editor. The javascript dialog successfully inserts the object tag, but when I publish or toggle to HTML view mode, the object tag is manipulated and the <object> element will not display properly.

I need to make sure the editor knows I am working with HTML so I can avoid it being parsed and manipulated.

Hi, have you considered using swfobject or something similar to render the flash instead? Maybe the epi editor would break that code aswell though.

If you are using R2 I would recommend to add it with a custom Dynamic Content.
