Flashcoder needed!
05:00:39 Feb 26th 07 - VU Admin:

I need someone to add a "click code" to one or two flash banners.

on (release) {
if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
getURL(clickTAG,"_blank");
}
}

I got no clue how to do it myself :P

You don'd need to know flash code to do this.

You need to make an invisible button that takes up the whole dimensions of the flash movie before you can start giving it a URL. It's pretty much: on release go to http://....

You could be a little bit more specific, add link to the banners so one got something to work with, and tell us if the webpage you want to be opened is visual-utopia.com and then maybe, I can make something happen, Im not a pro on flash, but I guess I could give it a try, and if you want the result in .fla files or .swf files.

The source file can be found here and a test page can be found here.

Source for the test file:

<html>
<head>
    <title>Banner test</title>
</head>
<body>

<a href="http://visual-utopia.com/whatever"><embed src="test.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="728" height="90"></embed></a>

</body>
</html>

I want you to come to the address in the href when you click on the banner.

Should be pretty simple to steal from any flash banner ad on the internet, no?


04:30:42 Feb 27th 07 - Admiral Ahjen:

Like so?

But why did you want it to go here?: visual-utopia.com/whatever

The .fla is pretty messy, and the fonts are needed to open the document correctly.

Admiral, can't he replace the whatever part, with the actual address, therefore making it useful...............


12:37:40 Feb 27th 07 - VU Admin:

Admiral Ahjen:  Like so?

Yeh, almost. Though I want it to go where the href (clickTAG) points.



16:47:21 Feb 27th 07 - Admiral Ahjen:

Thats the part that confuses me. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by clickTAG.


17:10:13 Feb 27th 07 - VU Admin:

<a href="I want you to go here"><flash-file: if you click here></a>

I want you to go to the address in the link, not a hard-coded address in the flash file.

Flash .swf banners must have this action assigned to the button which sends visitor to advertiser's site:

on (release) {
if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
getURL(clickTAG,"_blank");
}
}

No improvements must be made to the above code, no other click-through URLs should be assigned inside the banner.
This will enable GAO to track statistics and to automatically assign the correct click-through URL.

The easiest way to make a button go somewhere is to just add the URL.  You dont need a code since its already in there, it'll just be saved with the button the next time you update it.  If you have the .swf file you can just plug it into Flash and add the URL.  There is a bar called Actions near the bottom of the screen, and you need to get into that.  Once your in there you need to click on Global Function and then Browser/Network.  Under that there is a "getURL" link.  You need to click on that and inside of the big white box on the right there will be a bar into which you can input the URL for wherever you want.  You need to make absolutely sure that you put in http://www. before wherever you are linking to.  If you do not you will end up with a broken link that no one can get to.

Enjoy!
