[resolved] Swf dosn't load in IE7 and IE6, swfobject 2.2 or javascript error? (2 posts)

    I love this plugin but having issues only in IE7 and IE6, the swf is not loading, I only see my fallback content. Has anyone else had this problem with this plugin or swfObject?

    I am using a child theme of Twentyten.

    I also see an error notice at the bottom of the screen in these browsers, "Expected Identifier, string or number".

    I have tested without anything in fallback content field and the problem persists, so that is not causing it. I can go the Flash Player website and confirm with its tester that I have version 10 installed, and the minimum I have set is 9. I have tested on another theme and the problem persists.

    Not sure what could be changed to fix it any ideas anyone?

    This is what the plugin code looks like when output on the page:

    <span id='swf-86-2'>Fallback Content
    <script type="text/javascript">swfobject.embedSWF("http://theurl.com/wp-content/uploads/TEST.swf", "swf-86-2", "800", "600", "9.0.0", {}, {base:"http://theurl.com/wp-content/uploads/TEST.swf/../",});</script>

    This should be fixed in the newest version.

    IE for some reason did not like the last comma if there are arguments, and there is a workaround in the newest version.
