Support » Fixing WordPress » Flash SWF size issue

  • I am trying to embed an swf file that’s 200 x 100 pixels in sidebar.php but the file won’t adjust no matter what I set the file size to – PLEASE HELP…

    I have successfully input the swf file into pages and posts without any issue at the CORRECT SIZE…it’s only sidebar.php that’s the issue.

    I have ALSO tried using several different plugins and each has worked fine on other posts and pages… but again the sidebar.php still doesn’t work properly.

    PLEASE HELP> If anyone can tell me what I need to do or an example code that will work to put an swf file into sidebar.php at 200 x 100 pixels that would be great!

    What happens if you try to add the video using a Text Widget? From what I can see, there’s plenty of room. Your upper sidebar is 320px wide with no margins or padding.

    Great suggestion, but the same thing happens. Could there be something within a css file that’s making it default to a larger size? After all, I tried completely different flash files of different sizes and the same thing happened… they were all automaticlaly resized regardless of what I set them at.

    But again, only within the sidebar.php – works fine though on standard html files, posts and comments even work.

    I couldn’t see anything obvious in your stylesheet. If you could add a video to the sidebar and leave it for a little while, I can try to take another look and see if I can figure out what is affecting it.

    Hi… I added the video using the following code in the sidebard.php

    [kml_flashembed movie=”” width=”1″ height=”1″]

    <!– Begin Alternate Content –>


    <img src=”” alt=”Get Adobe Flash player” />


    <!– End Alternate Content –>


    The file (video) is at the bottom right side of the screen. As you can see the size is NOT correct.


    ANY help would be appreciated.
