how do websites get that "enable flash player" to appear on their pages?

Question

Izlude    93

I noticed some pages that are flash based have this thing (as shown in my screenshot).

 

How do I get the same thing to appear on my flash site?  https://imgur.com/a/nhpjC39

 

My page shows absolutely nothing, so I'm wondering if during that whole time I wasn't keeping up with flash (since it's supposed to be dead) that a solution was proposed to let people keep using it and allow them to have this pop-up appear on their page that lets them enable it.  Is there a new code to use?

Add flash to your site and then use a browser that supports it. That message only shows on browsers that support flash.

Ohhh ok I fixed it... OK I just googled current code and I found 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="775" HEIGHT="580" id="index.swf" ALIGN="">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="index.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#333399> <EMBED src="index.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#333399 WIDTH="775" HEIGHT="580" NAME="index.swf" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED> </OBJECT>

 

I was using the following (dreamweaver was making me do this, perhaps it's an old version).

 

<script type="text/javascript">
   var so = new SWFObject("index.swf", "HugClub", "775", "580", "8", "#FFF4FF");
   so.write("flashcontent");
</script>

 

Now that I think back, I recall the whole issue with "swf object" and this type of code was used back then.  I guess everything's just all baked in now so I can use the code above now.  Yeah... that's it... I remember my SWFs were coming up as red flags on my page that one time.  It actually still works when I use it in IE11 lol... but OK, glad this new code works.  Thanks!!!


EDIT:  Yup... so much clean up took place on my old code.  I'm soooo glad it's simplified and they're at least now allowing people the option to enable and view.  I feel so happy!  I'm gonna get right to work and reopen my little corner/store.
