I've installed the Kimili plugin but I have NO idea how to put flash in to the header.

I'm just playing around with wordpress for now so I am using the default template.

How do I make that big blue header a flash header?

I've googled myself in to the Kimili plugin but I don't have any knowledge of PHP.  Can anyone provide an idiots guide to adding flash to my wordpress header?

I've seen this info before.

The first one just says replace your header.php text with this "_________"

Really though? The entire header PHP should be replaced with that code?

The second link contains nothing.  Embedding flash in a post is easy.  I can't get it in to the header.

Hello,

You need to put the code just in header.php at Header image code ie, start with this code -
< img src = >.

I don't see this anywhere in the header.php

I do see where the header image is in the CSS though.  How would I add a flash movie if it were done in the css?

I've attached the header PHP.  I'll do the same for the CSS in a separate comment.

Hello,

Sorry

Use  
      [kml_flashembed movie="/path/to/your/movie.swf" width="550" height="400" /]

instead of

<kml_flashembed movie="/path/to/your/movie.swf" height="value" width="value" />

Ah, there it is.  I have to put in the full URL for the flash file.

How do I place it? Right now it sits right at the very top.  Can I move that around?
