Can I use the ___ embed option? How?
All Flash embed tags are made available through the SwfObj plugin. Most are set using the identical option in the swfobj embed code. For example, to set wmode to transpart you would use the following shortcode:
[swfobj … wmode=”transparent”]
For more documentation, refer to the plugin website. If you do come across an option that isn’t currently supported, please let me know.
Why isn’t it working? I’m using WP 2.3
This plugin uses WordPress’s shortcode API. A feature which was added to WordPress in version 2.5. All versions of WordPress prior to this release, unfortunately, are incompatible with this plugin. Sorry.
