Dowload link for .fla files

  1. Hello everyone, I'm new around here. I develop flash games as a hobby and I am starting to create a website for my own game tutorials. As a general practice for tutorials, it is good to provide the project / source code for the reader.

    Is there a way I can provide a download link for the .fla file at the end of the tutorial?

    The blog I need help with is as3gametuts.wordpress.com.

  2. It's not among the accepted file types here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/accepted-filetypes/ or here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/scribd/

    For Flash objects a gigya shortcode can be used

  3. What you can do is to host them at an online file sharing service such as box.net or fileden and then link to the file from your posts.

  4. Just FYI, in order to get a direct download link from box.net that you can use on your blog, you need to have a paid account. Regular accounts receive a link which takes them to a download page on box.net. The max file upload is 25M with a free account.

    However, you can use the box.net widget in a widget area on your blog.http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/boxnet-widget/ Same upload limitations

    Hey, I have been able to upload code in box.net and embed the "box" free in my (free) wordpress.com blog. That means users can download the code right from my blog post without having to go the corresponding box.net page.

    Check out this post for an example:

    I will visit box.net and see where this option exists.

  6. That's great, sanjidas! An embed, of course, is not the same as a download link. In some cases, it's better. :)

  7. Okay,
    Here is how that works for me:
    After I log in, I click the "Upload" button. When the upload is complete, I click the option that says "Shared", then the "Change Sharing Options" button (the icon that looks like a "gear") and click the "embed file in your site" button.

    I get the Flash embed code which I modify into a gigya shortcode.
