Since the Flash side of the site had a weekly quote section, I thought it would be a good idea to install a similar piece into the blog page. To the right, in the sidebar, you will now see a small window displaying this week’s thought/quote.
All of the quotes I’ve put together are stored in an XML file, which Flash then uploads and parses for displaying. For the plugin on this page, I made a scaled-down version, which only displays the current week, rather than letting the viewer browse through them.
Here’s what it looks like embedded in a page:
To embed on your side, use the following code:
<object width="300" height="180">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.dicarloarts.com/sayings/quotes.swf">
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<embed src="http://www.dicarloarts.com/sayings/quotes.swf" wmode="transparent" width="300" height="180">
The Flash plugin will work anywhere, and will automatically update itself every week with a new quotation, saying, thought, or other interesting musing.
