I am using the twentyeleven theme with a child set up. I want to have a Flash slideshow that fades three images in rotation at the top of each page.
I am not sure that this is the best way to achieve it but I have done so by copying the file "sidebar_page.php" into the child theme's folder and adding the Flash code in between the <div id="primary"> and <div id="content" role="main">. I've also copied the files (slideshow.swf, images.xml and folder with three images) into the child theme's folder.
This works OK on the Home page only. As soon as I go to another page on the site the Flash slideshow is replaced by a black box.
