Custom Flash Feature

Recommended Posts

rwk123

I am using a custom flash movie I built on my own. I upload the .swf files to /httpdocs and it works great on my home page. However, it doesn't work on any other pages. What file do I upload the .swf files to to get the flash movie to work on other pages, categories and posts?

How are you displaying the .swf files on your home page (any HTML code)? Also, can you provide a link?

I put the .html in the html box in the feature and I'm sure there is code in it. kerrlf.com is the site. The code is: <OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=4,0,0,0" ID=KLF Feature Page SWF WIDTH=957 HEIGHT=311> <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="KLF Feature Page SWF.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=loop VALUE=false> <EMBED src="KLF Feature Page SWF.swf" loop=false quality=high WIDTH=957 HEIGHT=311 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"> </EMBED> </OBJECT>

For the embed src you should try inputting the full path to the swf file. If you upload it throught the Media Upload tool, you can copy and paste the full url there.

I changed the url to the embed source in the .swf file, didn't work. pages other than the front page just "sit and spin" obviously looking for something they can't find. Hmmm.

I noticed something else, in my google webmaster tools there are a lot of 404 error codes for the .swf file. Each one has the url: Http://www.kerrlf.com/"pagename"/featurepage.swf The "pagename" is each individual page I want the feature to display on . . . .

Can you repost the code with the full url in it so I can test it?

Have you considered installing a Flash embed plugin that allows you to add shortcodes for your .SWF file to the feature area posts? This one might be useful to you: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/swfobj/
