Support » Fixing WordPress » Header = Flash

  • Can we put a flash file in our header? If we can put a .jpg in the header it seems we could put flash. I haven’t seen a motion header yet and wondering about it.

  • Yup. No reason why you can’t. You just do an embed.

    I have one flash in my header, you can create a div to put it. For example:

    <div id=”flash”>

    <object classid=”clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000″ codebase=”,0,0,0″ width=”800″ height=”55″ >
    <param name=movie value=”/wordpress/wp-content/themes/…complete the route here with the nade mof the flash“>

    <param name=quality value=high>
    <param name=”wmode” value=”transparent”>

    <embed src=”/wordpress/wp-content/themes/complete the route here with the flash.swf” quality=high pluginspage=”” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”800″ height=”55″>




    e-monk, and anyone else that might copy it, that isnt valid XHTML, just so you know. You also don’t need the embed junk, thats deprecated.

    A Valid example:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="" width="790" height="40">
    <param name="movie" value="" />
    <param name="menu" value="false" />
    <param name="bgcolor" value="D7d7d7" />
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

    thanks to everyone above. after i finish my flash art and make it work i will let you know. hopefully this weekend!

    Thanks for that code. Do I put that in the header.php or in the style.css?
    Thanks in advance

    well, i have not finished my flash art but i wish to revisit per adamsjw2 question. i am guessing the style.css? that is where i put my rotate.php code in the header folder for a mast-header on another site.




    you dont put PHP inside your stylesheet, no.

    if thats what you just asked.

    here is what i placed it in the stylesheet:

    #header {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    position: relative;
    height: 200px;
    background: url(‘images/header/rotate.php’) left center no-repeat;

    here is the config instructions:
    <p>/* ————————- CONFIGURATION ———————–<br>
    <p> Set $folder to the full path to the location of your images.<br>
    For example: $folder = ‘/user/me/’;<br>
    If the rotate.php file will be in the same folder as your<br>
    images then you should leave it set to $folder = ‘.’;</p>
    <p> $folder = ‘.’;<br>
    <p>/* </p>
    <p> Most users can safely ignore this part. If you’re a programmer,<br>
    keep reading, if not, you’re done. Go get some coffee.</p>
    <p> If you’d like to enable additional image types other than<br>
    gif, jpg, and png, add a duplicate line to the section below<br>
    for the new image type.<br>
    Add the new file-type, single-quoted, inside brackets.<br>
    Add the mime-type to be sent to the browser, also single-quoted,<br>
    after the equal sign.<br>
    For example:<br>
    PDF Files:</p>
    <p> $extList[‘pdf’] = ‘application/pdf’;<br>
    CSS Files:</p>
    <p> $extList[‘css’] = ‘text/css’;</p>
    <p> You can even serve up random HTML files:</p>
    <p> $extList[‘html’] = ‘text/html’;<br>
    $extList[‘htm’] = ‘text/html’;</p>
    <p> Just be sure your mime-type definition is correct!</p>
    <p> $extList = array();<br>
    $extList[‘gif’] = ‘image/gif’;<br>
    $extList[‘jpg’] = ‘image/jpeg’;<br>
    $extList[‘jpeg’] = ‘image/jpeg’;<br>
    $extList[‘png’] = ‘image/png’;<br>
    <p>// You don’t need to edit anything after this point.<br>
    <p>// ——————— END CONFIGURATION ———————–</p>

    This PHP script will randomly select an image file from a<br>
    folder of images on your webserver. You can then link to it<br>
    as you would any standard image file and you’ll see a random<br>
    image each time you reload.<br>
    When you want to add or remove images from the rotation-pool,<br>
    just add or remove them from the image rotation folder.<br>

    I know this thread is a bit old, but does anyone know how to have a different flash movie for each category on the singles page? For example, you would go to a single post in the category ‘News’ and see a flash header saying ‘News’ at the top, and the same for each category.
    I guess it’s something to do with conditional tags, but I couldn’t find one about categories.
