I've been embedding pupil created flash games onto our website since 2007, by simply uploading a .swf file and changing the a href= code into embed src code.
It's always worked fine, and when I needed to tweak the post, the HTML is easy to modify.

This morning I noticed in the most recent post with embedded flash that there is a whole load of new code as shown below;



Is this a change at your end? Does all this need to stay, or can it be stripped out?

Hi Simon!

We'll be happy to check this out. Can you paste your original code in to your reply here so we'll have something to work with? Also a link to the SWF file would be great.

Thanks!
Melanie

Hi,
I manually altered the code for the post ( http://www.porchester.notts.sch.uk/we...) this morning, but it is back as it was again this evening.

The original code was;

Here it is.... at last... Eve's 2DIY ActionScript extravaganza... based on a well known game...

The original .swf file is here;

(this seems to happen once I view the compose editor in Safari)

Hi Simon!

Can you try putting the code between < pre > and < / pre > tags (removing the spaces first)? Get Satisfaction is parsing the code. :)

Thanks!

Hi Simon! Did you flip between the Rich Text and HTML views on the Compose page before noticing the extra code? The Rich Text editor can interfere with complex code and add unwanted code or make other changes.

We would recommend switching to Markdown or Convert Line Breaks mode to help prevent unnecessarily changes to Rich Text. Does that help?

Hi Jen,
Yes, it happened when I loaded the dashboard using Safari. The default view was rich text, then I changed to HTML.
I have a Flash pop up blocker on Safari, and it seems to kick in on the Rich Text editor, then displays that blocking code in the HTML tab.

DIdn't think of looking into that. Thanks

CTP stands for ClickToPlugin. It's a plugin for Safari you've installed that can be used to replace Flash and other content displayed by plugins with a placeholder that needs to be clicked for the plugin to activate.
