[resolved] How to add an .swf ad that links to another site? (3 posts)

    Having difficulties getting an .swf ad to properly link to another site. I have the ad displaying fine, and when you roll over it the link shows in the status bar, but when you click it it doesn't go to that link -- it stays on the site and gives a page not found message (it's trying to go to http://www.mysite.com/undefined).

    I've tried the code from the Knowledgebase (http://www.adrotateplugin.com/support/knowledgebase/flash-ads/) -- both with and without clicktracking, but it doesn't work.

    I've tried this (with clicktracking checked and the link included in the clicktracking section):

    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="300" height="600" id="AKA">
        <param name="movie" value="%image%?clickTAG=%link%">
        <param name="quality" value="high">
        <embed src="%image%?clickTAG=%link%" quality="high" width="300" height="600" name="AKA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed>
    </object>

    And this:

    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="300" height="600" id="AKA">
        <param name="movie" value="%image%">
        <param name="quality" value="high">
        <embed src="%image%" quality="high" width="729" height="90" name="AKA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed>
    </object>

    I've also tried adding a div like this:

    <div onmousedown="window.location.href='http://www.site-to-go-to.com'"><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="300" height="600" id="AKA">
        <param name="movie" value="%image%">
        <param name="quality" value="high">
        <embed src="%image%" quality="high" width="300" height="600" name="AKA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed>
    </object>
    </div>

    Any advice/suggestions to get this to work?

    Thanks!

    Late reply-

    Seems like your file has the url embedded into it.
    You can't use clicktracking with AdRotate in that case.

    However, check with the person who made thie swf file if his actionscript works correctly. Perhaps he can use ClickTAG then also so you can use AdRotates clicktracking.
