Kimili Flash Embed

Provides a WordPress interface for SWFObject 2, the best way to embed Flash content on any site.

Version 2.5.3

  • Fixed an issue with the 2.5.2 release which threw a syntax version error in some versions of PHP.

Version 2.5.2

  • Fixed an issue which caused KFE to break in WordPress 4.3.

Version 2.5.1

  • Whoops! 2.5 shipped with some undefined variable bugs! This release fixes those.

Version 2.5

  • I've finally updated shortcode parsing to use the official WordPress Shortcode API rather than the home-spun approach I cobbled together nearly 9 years ago when I first wrote this plugin. Frankly, I was impressed it worked for as long as it did, but now I was able to strip out that old fragile (and, as of WP 4.0.1, broken) code as a result. Kimili Flash Embed now is a better WordPress citizen, and should work with other plugins that it might not have worked alongside in the past. Now that it uses only official WP APIs, it should also be more future-proof, so you can continue to use it confidently as WordPress continues to evolve in the future.

Version 2.3

  • Security patch to utilize updated version of SWFObject (identified by kitchin). Now, when choosing to use the internal version of SWFObject (which is the recommended approach as of this update), KFE will reference the copy of SWFObject included with WordPress if you're using WP 3.3.2 or newer, otherwise, it'll reference the copy of SWFObject bundled with the plugin.
