Embed Flash easily and standard compliant with SWFObject using only a [swf] shortcode!
In the text editor simply write something like:
[swf src=”http://www.example.com/my-flash-file.swf” width=300 height=100]
The attributes src, width and height are required
Additional attributes includes:
The attributes params, and flashvars should be written like “flashvar1=value&flashvar2=value” to function properly. If you want to specify a Flash version use version attribute. Default is 9.
To provide alternative content for people without Flash, simply put some text between the [swf] brackets, e.g.
[swf src=”http://www.example.com/my-flash-file.swf” width=300 height=100]You must have Flash to view this file[/swf]
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
Use the [swf] shortcode in the text editor as described in the description
A past developer installed this plugin for us a few years ago. Now that I maintain the site myself, forum support is essential. I’ve posted help requests in the plugin support forum and even emailed the developer personally…all with no results. If I can’t upload my swf files as planned, the plugin becomes useless. Suspect it is no longer active…there have been no updates in over 2 years.
To be fair, it does work with the original swf files. Still, sites need updating and the plugin isn’t “there” to help.
