problems inserting html file

  1. Hi I am new to wordpress but am enjoying it! well done! I have an animate picture in HTML that i have tried up loading to a theme when I get a security error or when I upload to my blog it says is not a vaild file type....... any ideas? it looks fine when i open the file in safari on my computer.

    The blog I need help with is peterblewitt.wordpress.com.

  2. What is the code you are trying to use?
    Use the format "backtick - code - backtick" so your code will appear here.
    The backtick is the lowercase of the tilde ~~~~ next to the 1 and ! key.

    Some codes are not permitted and WordPress will strip them:

  4. We can not use javascript or flash on wp.com blogs.

    Where did you find this code?
    There are ways in insert some flash objects, but not directly.

  5. many thanks - got the pretty picture from friend in russia.
    if i pay for the premium service would this help me? could i do it with a wordpress website as opposed to blog?
    is it complex to add flash as you suggest?

  6. There are no upgrades for WordPress.com that will allow you to add flash directly to your blog.
    If you use WordPress.org software you must set up your own site. That means you must pay someone to host your site, and you will be responsible for all problems that develop in setting up and administering your blog. If you are not interested in learning the technical aspects of website maintenance, then it probably is not a good choice for you—just my opinion there.
    Here are details about the differences:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    This thread might help with getting your flash movie on to your site:

  7. very helpful .. many thanks

    Reference link to support documentation re:restricted codes that will be stripped out by the WordPress.com software > http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

  9. @peter, the other thing you should know is that code you have is a complete web page with the doctype declaration, head, body and html sections. Even if there were no restricted code in what you have posted, it could not be used here. If you were to take that code, post it on a web server and then go to that particular page, it would display as a complete stand alone web page. You can't insert a complete web page within another complete web page. It will break the WWW (not really, but you get the idea).
