Embedding Vimeo widget code - in WP widget box, post or page

  1. Hi,

    Embedding individual Vimeo videos in WordPress is simple. No problem embedding them in posts, pages or WP text/html widgets. BUT.... I can't embed actualk Vimeo widget code. Sic:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="300" data="http://vimeo.com/hubnut/?user_id=user5618180&color=6b6a6a&background=000000&fullscreen=1&slideshow=1&stream=album&id=1722716&server=vimeo.com"> <param name="quality" value="best" /> <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /> <param name="scale" value="showAll" /> <param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/hubnut/?user_id=user5618180&color=6b6a6a&background=000000&fullscreen=1&slideshow=1&stream=album&id=1722716&server=vimeo.com" /></object>

    I've tried all the usual gambits but WP does not recognise the carousel functionality of the code.

    Anyone got any suggestions?

  3. Hi,

    Here it : http://www.cafepic.wordpress.com/

    You'll see the Vimeo carousel widget code on the home page. This what WP converted from the actual code entered, which was:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="300" data="http://vimeo.com/hubnut/?user_id=user5618180&color=ffffff&background=000000&fullscreen=1&slideshow=1&stream=album&id=1722716&server=vimeo.com"> <param name="quality" value="best" /> <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /> <param name="scale" value="showAll" /> <param name="movie" value="http://vimeo.com/hubnut/?user_id=user5618180&color=ffffff&background=000000&fullscreen=1&slideshow=1&stream=album&id=1722716&server=vimeo.com" /></object>

    What do you think?

    Thanks

    We Volunteers cannot "see" private blogs. The instructions for posting Vimeo videos are found here and I find that the shortcode works very well. Which theme are you using please? You refer to a carousel but I'm not aware of any themes here that allow videos to be displayed in carousels. From what I read only images can be included.

  5. OK. Thank you. That's answered my question. I'm most grateful

    Regards,
