    Not all code is allowed in a text widget. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    If you have an example, paste it here between backticks, which on most keyboards is to the left of the number 1, and we can tell you if it can be used.

    If you looked at the Support page I linked to above, you’ll have seen this:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/#flash-and-other-embeds

    SWF is a flash file and EMBED is not one of the allowed HTML tags.

    You might be able to use the gigya shortcode. You can find info here http://wp.me/ptD4e-WD
