Using a flashplayer widget in the sidebar

  1. I want to display my badge from yalitchat.com, a group I belong to. They only offer a flashplayer widget (usually used with embed code). How can I display that badge on my sidebar?

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

  2. See this post of mine:
    http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/07/22/gigya-shortcode-3-widgets/
    If you can't figure it out, paste the embed code here, enclosed in backticks.

    PS Backticks doesn't mean brackets. See the note on "allowed markup".

  5. You did it! It is now displaying in my sidebar. Thank you very much, justpi.

  6. Any idea how I can get rid of the scroll bars that come up with this widget? I tried changing the sizes in the code, and they do effect how much is displayed, but never get rid of the scroll bars, no matter how big I make it.

  7. You're welcome.
    I'm not seeing any scrollbars in the browsers I use. You're probably using a bad browser version.

  8. You are probably right about it being at least partly a browser issue. It comes up clean on Firefox and Chrome, but has the scroll bars on IE9.
