Hey guys.

The company that produces my digital publication gives me a thumbnail version with the page animation effect so that I can embed and use on my websites.

Is there anyway to change the LINK of this script, so that instead of people ending up in this this page ( when they click on the animation they go here instead: (

I've tried a million things and I cant's force it go to to this other link. Total newbie here, please help!!!

Bellow is the original script I get to embed on my pages.
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var vars = {urlContent:'',urlLogo:'',gotopage:'-1',dnsPrefix:'',clientname:'apuntesdigital',publication:'ApuntesDigitalII-1',edition:'2008120801',sessionID:'-1',clientID:'',publicationGroupID:'97361',publicationID:'',mode:'flash',uniqID:'413718f732',lang:'en',numPagesDisplayed:'6',numPagesTotal:'84'};
var params = { scale:'noScale', salign:'tl', menu:'true', allowFullScreen:'true', wmode:'transparent'};
var attributes = { id:'core', name:'core' }; // give an id to the flash object
swfobject.embedSWF("", "flashContent", "202", "172", "9.0.0", "", vars, params, attributes );
<script type="text/javascript">
function openFull(p,n) {
var r   = null;
r =,n,'width='+screen.width+',height='+screen.height+',top='+0+',left='+0+','+'scrollbars=no,toolbar=no,location=no,status=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,dependent=no');
if(r!=null && window.focus) r.window.focus();
<div id="flashContent"></div>

Hi JackoPinto,

I'm not 100% sure I fully understand the question, so please allow me to ask for more information.

First of all the script you posted is 99% javascript, it is a very commonly used script calles SWFObject , and it is best practice to embed .swf (flash content) in HTML pages. The last line in the snippet, is a div tag. This is HTML code. The div tag is what will get replaced by the javascript once it has successfully loaded the .swf file and has detected a desirable flash player version on the end-user's computer.

Having said all that, I wonder if your goal is to embed the flash content (hosted by ) onto your website (, then the answer is : yes , you can.
==>All you have to do is open up your index.html page (or any other page where you would like to embed) , search for the location between the <body> </body> tags were you want to place the flash content. This is the place where you embed (paste/copy) the div tag.
The rest of the script (in between the <script></script> tags), you have to copy/paste between the <head></head> tags of your index.html file.

Normally that should work.

If this is not the anwser to the question, then I guess you are going to have to rephrase it.

Thanks for your comments.

I guess I do need to rephrase my question.

Let me see if I can explain myself better.  

The code provided to my by VirtualPaper gives my the animation of a flipping magazine.   If I place the code provided into any of my pages ,which I have, the animation comes up and if I click on it it takes me to this page:

What I want to do is change this destination of the click. I mean, that if I click on this flipping image instead of ending up in the page I mentioned just now,  I end up in this page:

In other words,  once I click on the animation I want to go here:

Hope this clarifies things, please let me know.

Ok with you now,

I tried copying the source code that embed's the big page turner and save it in an html file on my server, the movie starts loading but halts (for ever) at 15%.

There must be some sort of built in security to prevent people from 'hot linking' their swf' s ...

I'll post the code below, maybe someone else finds the weak chain ?


PS: if you pay them for this stuff, why can't you ask them for the swf just the same?

That's true, I guess I could ask for it since I pay for it. I guess I thought this would be easier.

I'd still like to figure this out .

Ok, this is pretty much a long shot since the destination of the link is embed on the Flash file and unless you have access to the source file, changing the link won't be an easy task.

However, checking a bit the code they do send quite a few arguments that perhaps are used to create the link on the fly and if we change them, we might go somewhere else...

So, change this line:

var vars = {urlLogo:"",gotopage:"-1",dnsPrefix:"",clientname:"apuntesdigital",publication:"ApuntesDigitalII-1",edition:"2008120801",sessionID:"13979220",clientID:"67391",publicationGroupID:"97361",publicationID:"117721",mode:"flash",uniqID:"842dd976962ce",lang:"en",searchTerms:"",debug:""};

To this line:

var vars = {urlLogo:"",gotopage:"-1",dnsPrefix:"",clientname:"",publication:"",edition:"",sessionID:"13979220",clientID:"67391",publicationGroupID:"97361",publicationID:"117721",mode:"flash",uniqID:"842dd976962ce",lang:"en",searchTerms:"",debug:""};

If this doesn't work, I'm afraid you're gonna have to ask them for either the source file, or a custom made file for you.

Hope this helps.
