Silverlight for WordPress

Description

Microsoft Silverlight is a browser plugin for enabling rich internet and media applications. This plugin makes it easy for WordPress content authors
to add Silverlight applications/content to their blog posts and/or pages using a simple command to specify the location of the Silverlight
application (XAP file) as well as the width, height and minimum version required for the runtime.

Special contributor note:
Juergen Oberngruber and Peter Loebel had created beta versions of a WordPress plugin that inspired this updated version. Credit goes to them for taking the first ventures in this path!

Installation

  1. Extract all files and copy it to your plugins directory (/wp-content/plugins/).
  2. Login to WordPress Admin and activate the plugin.
  3. Goto the Settings area and update your prefered default values for width, height and minimum version.
    • Standard Root Location: a location where XAP files may be stored if not providing the absolute URI to the XAP file
    • Standard Width: the default width of the Silverlight plugin
    • Standard Height: the default height of the Silverlight plugin
    • Standard Version: the minimum required Silverlight version required

A silverlight application can be embedded in a post using a tag of the following form:

[silverlight: URL]

e.g. [silverlight: app.xap]

You can also override the default dimensions:

[silverlight: URL, WIDTH, HEIGHT]

e.g. [silverlight: app.xap, 400, 300]

If you need to provide initParams they must be the fourth param and delimited with a “#” tag

e.g. [silverlight: app.xap, 400, 300, foo=bar#second=true#test=1]

You can also provide the minimum runtime version:

[silverlight: URL, WIDTH, HEIGHT, MINVER]

e.g. [silverlight: app.xap, 400, 300, foo=bar#second=true#test=1, 2.0.31005.0]

FAQ

Does this work with Silverlight 1.0 applications?

No, this currently works with Silverlight 2+ applications that use the XAP packaging model.
