Only v.2.0.3 works
By , for WP 4.3

I couldn't get the latest updates to work with WP 4.1 and 4.3. Every time I update this plugin, it just stops displaying my swf file. I end up having to remove that installation and reinstall v.2.0.3. I love that version as it works beautifully but am puzzled as to why the newer versions don't work at all.

2015-08-30 update killed my site
By , for WP 4.3

Updated 9 installed plugins, then my site died. After FTP-ing in and renaming each plugin folder, one at a time, until the site came back up, I narrowed it to this plugin. I'm sure it'll be fixed soon, but for now, it not only doesn't work, but killed my site.

great plugin - works like it says

Yes it does actually work with wordpress 4.1

This is actually a lot simpler to implement than the instructions suggest (far toooo many options, most of which you can ignore). Basically there are a two stages to do to make this work after installing the plugin and activating it:

1st upload your *.swf movie via ftp to the folder of your choice, which is easier if you choose the root directory (your public html folder of your website). You cannot use the Media uploader within wordpress as its not allowed for this file type.

2nd you will find on your Pages editor toolbar a new red flash logo button called "insert a kimili flash embed tag" if you hover your mouse over it. Position your mouse on the page where you'd like to insert the movie, Click this embed tag button and simply enter the name of the flash file in the SWF Definition section. Now the important bit: you MUST include the path before the filename, so if you've put the file in the root directory simply precede the file name with / , for example /mymovie.swf . You can specify height and width, then click the Generate button and it should insert something like this into your page :

[kml_flashembed publishmethod="static" fversion="8.0.0" movie="/mymovie.swf" width="600" height="450" targetclass="flashmovie"]

That really all there is to it, unless you need some specific settings you don't need to do anything else. If this doesn't work see the Support pages, that's what I did but as I say the instructions do seem to over-complicate it.

Excellent Interface with easy to understand input fields

Excellent Interface with easy to understand input fields. I've tried other flash embed plugins, but this one actually works and it generates the code for you... stop messing around with those other plugins that make you learn short codes and their options and get this!

Works like it should

It just works. No problems. Easy to configure.

Stopped with 3.9.1??
By , for WP 3.9.1

Does the plugin still work with the last update? It does not on my site... any other?

Didn't like it
By , for WP 3.5.2

I tried a few different flash embedders. This plugin looked sophisticated, but it is not aware of the library contents and it placed the generated code right on top of my editing window, not at the cursor. Plus the description screenshot was quite different from the real plugin.

Simple to embed external SWF
By , for WP 3.5

Really easy to use to embed SWF animations hosted on other web-sites.

Makes the screen entire flash
By , for WP 3.5

Beware - Seems to make the entire screen flash when navigating pages in the live site. I uninstalled and the problem went away. Then I re-installed and the problem came back immediately. Then I uninstalled again and it went away.
