Implementing Flash units is common practice in contemporary web design. Flash presents objects in a continuous movie format, and often includes sound as well as a high interactivity level, providing your users with a rich and more engaging experience.
We mention this since we’ve been getting an increase of questions from publishers regarding Flash and ContentLink ads. Will ContentLink ads be affected by flash units featured on a webpage?
ContentLink Ads are usually unaffected by Flash units. Still, as there are multiple parameters incorporated in each flash code, if you feel that they’re causing any irregularity in your ads’ appearance you can follow these steps:
Use transparent mode when loading the Flash unit to your HTML code. Transparent mode allows the background color or image of the HTML page that contains the Flash unit to show through.
This can be achieved by making the following adjustments to your Flash unit’s code:
- For the <OBJECT> tag, add the following parameter: <param name=”wmode” value=”transparent”>
- For the <EMBED> tag, add the following parameter: wmode=”transparent”
