I guess I am having the same problem as raincoaster. I have tried to make a tag cloud using Tagul, but the embed code looks like this:
src="http://cdn.tagul.com/cloud.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" width="100" height="100" flashvars="id=21459@2"
Linking to the "cloud.swf" source gives just a blue block of nothing, and the tutorial on using Tagul does not adequately explain how to get the flashvars ID inserted into the source URL. So Tagul is embedding properly neither with gigya nor vodpod.
No, your problem is not the same as rain's. Rain was unable to make the "tag cloud", but you didn't have problem with that. You were having problem embedding it in wordpress.com.
And that is because the code they give you is Flash.
and the tutorial on using Tagul does not adequately explain how to get the flashvars ID inserted into the source URL. So Tagul is embedding properly neither with gigya nor vodpod.
The part where I tell my readers to learn how to change the Flash code for wordpress.com seems inadequate. However, if you follow the link in that post that tells you how to have Flash embeds in wordpress.com you will learn how to embed Flash using vodpod or gigya shortcode. Both methods are explained in vedio tutorials.
I did say in my post that gigya method is better.
I couldn't afford to explain the vodpod or gigya method in that post because that post is one of many posts in my blog that deal with embedding different Flash objects in wordpress.com. Explaining how to modify Flash codes in wordpress.com in all such posts is a bit tedious for me.
Careful, she'll call you a liar too!
Thanks for explaining things in a way that readers can understand. You rock!
and sanjida must be more careful with her absolutes
Well I have just tested Tagul again and it is behaving just the way it did before.
It should be remembered that Tagul fetches tags from a url, but that is only one option and not an indispensable one. This "Google Calednar embed" thing for wordpress.com using Tagul is only a workaround and will not work if you add the url, you have to choose the other option, which is text.
