I'm not sure if an SWF file can be uploaded using the "Upload custom logo" feature but you can try embedding the file into that area using a plugin that allows you insert SWF files (probably something like this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/kimili-flash-embed/) in combination with a hook. Do you have PlatformBase activated?

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Thanks for the quick reply Catrina. I downloaded "WP-SWFObject" http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-swfobject/ But I am not sure what to exactly do from this point. Does this go in the HTML somewhere?

Do the instructions for the plugin tell you to add a code somewhere? If so, you'll need to use a hook to add it into the header. Do you have PlatformBase?

How do I tell if I have Platform Base? Sorry I am new to this. I know I have Platform Pro installed. This is what the directions say: To insert swf into post content or text widget use: [swf]movie.swf, width, heigth[/swf] To insert swf with flashvars use: [swf]movie.swf, width, heigth, var1=val1&var2=val2[/swf] To insert swf on template, use the php code: To insert swf with flashvars on template, use the php code:

You will want to use the PHP code, but don't worry about that for now. You'll need to install PlatformBase first. Please read this before installing so that you understand its purpose and how it can help you customize your site the way you want: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/14315/activating-the-correct-theme#Item_1 You can download a zip file of PlatformBase by logging into your Launchpad account: http://pagelines.com/launchpad
