Missing HTML Tab?
HTML Tab is missing. Hi, I just signed up for an wordpress.com account and I am unable to embed pdfs and swf files. With research I found that I needed the insert/edit embedding tool. However this tool is not in my tool box and I have expanded the menu.
I have also checked under my user name etc., for anything that would inhibit it. I don’t see any html writing box to be “ticked” or “unticked”
It is not a browser problem. I checked it in both Safari and Firefox.
It is not a widget problem because I haven’t installed or added anything. I haven’t even posted anything!!!! This is a brand new account.

The blog I need help with is rosamondnews.wordpress.com.
For the PDFs if you want to embed the document itself, you will have to use a third party application like Scribd or Google Docs. Otherwise, the documents will appear as a download link.

For a giyga workaround see here > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/07/22/gigya-shortcode-3-widgets/
Thank you timethief. Your suggestions are exactly what I needed! The swf information was especially helpful.
You’re welcome and best wishes with your blog. :)
