    Is there a tutorial on this? There are various posts but it would be good to bring them together. For example: I've tried loading a flash banner but it doesn't show - what exactly should be the code structure for this? I have the following:

    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" width="728" height="90">
    <param name="movie" target="_blank" value="wp-content/uploads/ads/top_banner_1.swf?actionURL=http://whereiwantittogo">
    <param name=quality value=high>
    <embed src="wp-content/uploads/ads/top_banner_1.swf?actionURL=http://whereiwantittogo" quality=high pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="728" height="90">

    I also see there are issues with the stats - could you please explain the best way to do this?

    Many thanks.

    OIO will automatically create the flash code for you, if you treat the flash banner as a normal image. If you want to grab the html for use elsewhere, setup a flash ad in OIO and then copy the code generated by the ad zone.

    The difficulty with stats tracking for flash banners comes with tracking clicks. Essentially, whoever created the flash banner needs to have used the standard method for passing a url into the flash banner, which is called clickTAG.

    If clickTAG isn't implemented correctly in the flash ad, clicks won't be recorded (and sometimes the ad won't be clickable at all).
