Using a flashplayer widget in the sidebar
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.
See this post of mine:
If you can’t figure it out, paste the embed code here, enclosed in backticks.
[ <embed wmode=”opaque” src=”http://static.ning.com/socialnetworkmain/widgets/index/swf/badge.swf?xn_version=124632088″ FlashVars=”backgroundColor=0xFFFFFF&textColor=0x454545&config=http%3A%2F%2Fyalitchat.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fbadge%2FshowPlayerConfig%3Fxg_source%3Dbadge%26size%3Dmedium%26username%3D2fil97vrzqt9l” width=”206″ height=”174″ bgColor=”#FFFFFF” scale=”noscale” allowScriptAccess=”always” allowFullScreen=”true” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” pluginspage=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer”> </embed>

PS Backticks doesn’t mean brackets. See the note on “allowed markup”.
You did it! It is now displaying in my sidebar. Thank you very much, justpi.
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.
I’m not seeing any scrollbars in the browsers I use. You’re probably using a bad browser version.
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.
