  •  Does anyone have any tips on integrating silverlight into wordpress? I've done some wordpress sites and I would like to be able to use a silverlight app on a couple of them.

    Thanks

  • I can confirm the Plugin works well with the latest release of WordPress (2.9.1). I have been using it for a few weeks now without any problems at all. Very easy to add in a Silverlight application into a post or page, just set the pathway to your app (relative to the specific Silverlight folder set in plugin options page) and your good to go. You can even override the Silverlight application size and resize to whatever you want!

    You can see it in action here, with a simple Silverlight Fractal demo. The only code needed to insert this into the post was something like:

    [silverlight: myApp.xap, 640, 480]

  •  Nice, I've started using wordpress to make every site anymore. It's so much easier than html imo. Plus the plugins like this one make everything so much easier to build sites.

     Thanks for the resource,

    John
