  1. Download the plugin and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory. Activate through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  2. Download the Free XtremeBannerRotator and copy the content of the archive in wp-content folder. (e.g: “”)
  3. Insert the swf into post or page using this tag: [xtreme-banner-rotator]. The default values for width and height are 595 300. If you want other values write the width and height attributes into the tag like so: [xtreme-banner-rotator width="yourvalue" height="yourvalue"]
  4. To configure the banner rotator general parameters use the banner-settings.xml. For individual banner rotator items use the banner-contents.xml file. (image path, image link and more)
  5. If you want to use multiple instances of Xtreme Banner Rotator on different pages. Follow this steps:
    a. There are 2 xml files in wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-banner-rotator folder: banner-settings.xml, used for general settings, and banner-content.xml, used for individual items.
    b. Modify the 2 xml files according to your needs and rename them (eg.: banner-settings2.xml, banner-content2.xml)
    c. Open the banner-settings2.xml, search for this tag < object param="contentXML" value="banner-content.xml" /> and change the attribute value to banner-content2.xml .
    d. Copy the 2 modified xml files to wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-banner-rotator .
    e. Use the xml attribute [xtreme-banner-rotator xml="banner-settings2.xml"] when you insert the banner rotator on a page.
  6. Optionally for custom pages use this php function: xtremeBannerRotatorEcho(width,height,xmlFile) (e.g: xtremeBannerRotatorEcho(595,420,’banner-settings.xml’) )
