Signatures with Flash embeds ?





shaggly
Just a quick question, and I couldn't really find the 100% appropriate place to ask it, so here seemed as good a place as any Laughing

I know if I set up my own forums then in theory I can enable such things as flash embeds with phpmybb or phpnuke, but is it allowed in here.

<<edit>> I see that it isn't so, let me rephrase the question - would you consider allowing it in the future ?

Here's an example of the code I mean:-

Code:
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="600" height="250">
  <param name="movie" value="http://xxxx.yyyyy.com/hoststuff/abcd/DomFlame2.swf">
  <param name="quality" value="high">
  <param name="scale" value="noscale" />
  <embed src="http://xxxx.yyyyy.com/hoststuff/abcd/DomFlame2.swf"  quality="high" scale="noscale" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="250"></embed>
</object>


Reason I ask is that I'd like to embed my usual signature in here, and in the other forums I frequent, I converted it to a swf file instead of a gif. I like using Flash, and I've found that it is much more efficient on space. Only thing is that most forums seem very shy about allowing <object> tags in their allowed html code.

How about here guys ?

I'm sometimes thinking of not allowing images in signatures at all. Some signatures are really way too big, it's not normal if your signature is 10 times bigger than your post.

So no, we won't allow flash or other scripts.

We did.

Check the rules. I thought placing the link in the header is the best. Maybe I have to suggest to place it RED and huge.

Now, I know why people are like, wtf?

If forums allowed object tags, it would be crazy! People could just post ActiveX objects that hack people's computers! Also, object tags are Internet Explorer ONLY. That's why the Flash HTML code includes a 'embed' tag. If you're not using Internet Explorer, it fallsback to the embed tag.

However, some forums allow posting of Flash content (the 'Simple Machines' forum software allows this if the option is turned on, maybe other forum software does as well). It's a security risk, however. People could put whatever ActionScript code they want in the flash animation...

You know why? See the bugzilla website.

I will certainly not add it, so this discussion is useless, this forum is for support, not for discussions. Wink
