Flash SWF size issue (8 posts)

    I am trying to embed an swf file that's 200 x 100 pixels in sidebar.php but the file won't adjust no matter what I set the file size to - PLEASE HELP...

    I have successfully input the swf file into pages and posts without any issue at the CORRECT SIZE...it's only sidebar.php that's the issue.

    I have ALSO tried using several different plugins and each has worked fine on other posts and pages... but again the sidebar.php still doesn't work properly.

    PLEASE HELP> If anyone can tell me what I need to do or an example code that will work to put an swf file into sidebar.php at 200 x 100 pixels that would be great!

    Unless you provide a link to your site, no one will be able to offer much in the way of specific help.

    What happens if you try to add the video using a Text Widget? From what I can see, there's plenty of room. Your upper sidebar is 320px wide with no margins or padding.

    Great suggestion, but the same thing happens. Could there be something within a css file that's making it default to a larger size? After all, I tried completely different flash files of different sizes and the same thing happened... they were all automaticlaly resized regardless of what I set them at.

    But again, only within the sidebar.php - works fine though on standard html files, posts and comments even work.

    I couldn't see anything obvious in your stylesheet. If you could add a video to the sidebar and leave it for a little while, I can try to take another look and see if I can figure out what is affecting it.

    Hi... I added the video using the following code in the sidebard.php

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.dogsportmagazine.com/wp-content/themes/lifestyle_40/images/WobblerAd_200x100_DSP_F.swf" width="1" height="1"]

    <!-- Begin Alternate Content -->


    <img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" />


    <!-- End Alternate Content -->


    The file (video) is at the bottom right side of the screen. As you can see the size is NOT correct.


    ANY help would be appreciated.
