    Is there any way to place animations in the sidebar (in some text widget)?

    as long as there is no iframes or javascript, I guess there’s no problem! ;)

    no flash either.

    Give us an idea of what you want, please, and we can tell you whether it will work. Animated gifs are OK.

    I have downloaded one animation I was interested in, and it opens (plays) with Macromedia Flash Player. If such animations can’t be placed in the sidebar, then I guess I must forget it, at least for the present.

    Thank you for your help.

    Judy is correct we can only use animated gifs and not flash. You can confirm this here reference: http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/10/23/can-i-add-flash-video-embed-other-media/
