how to get a flash file working properly in a wordpress page WordPress


I'm lost with flash.

got a flash file (holder.swf) which is calling on a series of sub files to animate as per the demo above, which is working fine in the index.html page but not when i try to load the file in a Wordpress page using kimili flash embed (see how the individual animations don't load here:

because the file links to other pages on the website, i can't embed it as an iframe otherwise the links load in the iframe.

what am I missing / what's the best way to get this working please?

Erez S comments:

do you want to show it on every post,or to have short tag which you'll write on your post and this will show the flash?

Dave Smith comments:

the latter would be best

Erez S comments:

function jjj_showflash(){
return '
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="" width="550" height="210" id="VideoPlayback">
<param name="movie" value="" />
<param name="allowScriptAcess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="quality" value="best" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<param name="scale" value="noScale" />
<param name="salign" value="TL" />
<param name="FlashVars" value="playerMode=embedded" />
add_shortcode('showflash', 'jjj_showflash');

add the code to the end of your functions.php on your theme,before the ?> and then simply write [showflash] where you want to show the flash,enjoy

the best thing is to use absolute path in your flash...

or make a variable in your flash for your site root...

like that:
var root =

and when you call your file in flash call it like that:
