What are some practical examples for its use?

Code: Select all

[flash=600,400]http://thebest404pageever.com/swf/Captain_K_nuckles_Whoah.swf[/flash]
that is how you would use it. the 600,400 is the size of the flash window.

however, even though the flash bbcode shows up here apparently the permissions to use it for regular users is not set to yes.

so, make sure that whatever user groups you want to be able to use flash have the permission set to yes for whatever forums you wish to set it for.

it is a forum permission.
