Getting Flash (SWF Files) Into WordPress

One of the most popular posts on BloggerDesign is how to get Flash (swf) into a WordPress post. The previous post is about three years old so I thought I’d write up a follow-up post, as embedding Flash is much easier now as it’s all built into WordPress.

With the newer versions of WordPress there is a button to embed media.

Once clicked, all you have to do is enter in the Flash (swf) file URL, set the dimensions, hit ‘Insert’, and WordPress will do the rest.

It’s that easy. No plugins, no confusing code, just provide WordPress with the URL of the Flash swf file and it’ll write the code to embed the Flash file into your post.

Finally, a good YouTube/Google Video/Flash/Quicktime/WMF Plugin

I’ve been searching and searching for a good way to get videos embedded into a WordPress blog post and the best was was to turn off the WYSIWYG editor. Well not any more. Viper’s Video Quicktags could be the best plugin around.

What’s so great about Viper’s Video Quicktags? For starters it works with YouTube, Google Video, WMF, Quicktime and FLV files. But the kicker is it adds buttons to your WYSIWYG toolbar.

This is a big feature as I may know how other plugins work, but remembering, or telling someone else, is a bit harder. With Viper there is just an icon to click on and it tells you want kind of ID it needs. Simple and effective. Plus it’s a snap to install.
