    Web gurus, I need your help!

    I've put together a small website that houses my resume, photography samples, urban design portfolio, a blog, etc. in iWeb because I am woefully ignorant when it comes to coding for the web (or coding anything, for that matter).

    What I want to do is create a button on one of my pages that, when clicked, opens up a full-screen .swf that I've created (its essentially a flash version of my portfolio with interactive page turning).

    I know its possible to imbed flash movies into iWeb, I just obviously don't know how to make it full-screen.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Flash = Fail

    Flash = large file, slow loading, search engine unfriendly

    However you can do it with code snippet.

    I agree. If the OP opts to do it anyway, here is a nice tutorial to follow. OP, use the code snippet feature in iWeb to import only the HTML object tag code on the tutorial site (not the entire HTML at once, obviously edit the object tag stuff to suit your needs) and do the same for the optional CSS.

    iweb flash fullscreen

    I have the same issue, trying to make fullscreen flash in iWeb. The tutorial you linked do will work for another host, but not an iWeb site. This does not seem to work with HTML snippets in iWeb. Any ideas? thanks!
