Getting Flash (swf) into WordPress

Just when I think I got all my embedding issues figured out with Viper, I find out it doesn’t work with basic Flash files (swf). So I was one again on the plugin hunt.

In no time at all I ended up at Kimili’s site and found the Kimili Flash Embed for WordPress plugin. Upload one file, activate it and then use special code to embed a Flash file into a WordPress blog post. It’s that simple. Still, I’ll never remember the special code, but that’s easy enough to find again as it’s listed on the Plugins page.

There is also a Textpattern version for those of you running that software.
