    Flash content in blogs

      How do you embed Flash content in a blog post? I guess the larger issue is can I insert HTML code like div and embed tags in a blog post?

       

       

       

       

       

      Thanks in advance,

          Take a look in your admin console under Communities (or Spaces) -> Settings -> Filters and Macros -> HTML Filter.

           

          This filter controls what is and what is not allowed in message posts. You can specify which html tags are allowed or not among other things.

           

           

          Regards,

                This option does not appear in my Clearspace 2.5 installation. Did it go away? When I try to use <embed> or <object>, the values seem to get stripped and I am always left with vanilla HTML with no values.

                 

                When I insert this:

                <EMBED src="Yourfilename.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#333399  WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240" NAME="Yourfilename" ALIGN=""
                 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED>

                 

                I get this on the next edit:

                 

                <body><p>
                <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" height="240" width="320">
                <param name="name" />
                <param name="bgcolor" />
                <param name="src" /><embed width="320" height="240" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>
                </object>
                </p></body>
                

                 

                Any ideas?
