Hey there everyone, I've been looking all around but I can't seem to figure out if this is possible.
Can you embed a .swf flash game object so that it plays inside your post, without reader having to click a link to see it on another page?
I run a Flash game tutorial website ( http://www.as3gametuts.wordpress.com ), and one feature I am sorely lacking that many other sites have is a demo of the tutorial game visible for all to see on the main blog post.
I can't figure out how to upload swf files directly to a WordPress.com site, so I uploaded one to my personal site at the following URL:
I tried using the following code to embed the swf into my post, but it didn't work, although this very same code does work on a separate webpage (see link below):
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab" width="550" height="400" id="testpong">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.benreynoldsmedia.com/files/Pong/AS3GameTuts_Pong_4.swf" /><embed src="http://www.benreynoldsmedia.com/files/Pong/AS3GameTuts_Pong_4.swf" width="550" height="400" name="testpong" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer" /></object>
This embed code works perfectly here:
So why does this not work? Why won't WordPress let users embed objects into their posts? Is there a way around this or do I have no choice but to direct my readers to this external page to view the swf?
Thank you very much!
