    can anyone tell me how I would get a .swf banner to show up in a sidebar widget? i've tried various code, but all I am able to get is an empty white box. Any help is appreciated!

    surely someone here has tried to embed a simple .swf banner in one of their wordpress widgets.

    please someone give me an idea that will work.

    I have added a swf file in a text widget in my sidebar using the >embed< code, and it works on the homepage, but as soon as you open one of the posts it leaves a white space.

    I just added this in another spot, but...

    It's time to upgrade to newest .swf player.

    http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/

    It has a lot of cool tools that make learning it worthwhile, but
    '<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
    is the best part. It allows swf files to play merrily in WP.

    It comes with really nice tutorials and a tool to create your coding.

    ---------------------------------

    Anyway, I struggled long and hard to make flash work with my headers AND not cause errors. Using this new version was the only thing that made everything work.
