So I can maintain them in one place, please see the Kimili Flash Embed FAQs at the Kimili Flash Embed Home
Installing the plugin is as easy as unzipping and uploading the entire kimili-flash-embed folder into your /wp-content/plugins directory and activating the plugin. You can deactivate and delete any old versions of KFE you may have.
Note: Because this plugin has been around for a while and numerous older versions exist, yet version 1.4 is the first version to actually be included in the Wordpress Plugin Repository, any older versions are NOT available here. If you'd like to download an older version, you can do so at the Kimili Flash Embed for Wordpress Home Page.
- Changed the way the Generator code detects the Wordpress directory. This will allow KFE to be references via symbolic links.
- Updated information about the "allowScriptAccess" defaults
- Fixed some typos and clarified some information about how the internal SWFObject references are set up. (Thanks Adam Samec for pointing out these last two tweaks)
- Removed inline attribution in public HTML
- Security patch to utilize updated version of SWFObject (identified by kitchin). Now, when choosing to use the internal version of SWFObject (which is the recommended approach as of this update), KFE will reference the copy of SWFObject included with Wordpress if you're using WP 3.3.2 or newer, otherwise, it'll reference the copy of SWFObject bundled with the plugin.
