I have a .swf file that runs fine on my desktop, I can click the link and get redirected to the proper page.

But, when I post on Wordpress site, the swf file plays, bu the hyperlink is dead...

Any ideas?

Are you embedding it correctly?
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"
WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240" id="MyMovieName">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="MyFlashMovie.swf">
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<EMBED src="MyFlashMovie.swf" quality=high WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240"
NAME="MyMovieName" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"

Try this
<A HREF="#" ONCLICK="window.open('index01.html','Portfolium','resizable =no,scrollbars=no,status=yes,width=835,height=640' ) ; self.close ()" ONMOUSEOVER="window.status='Continue' ; return true" ONMOUSEOUT="window.status=''">

try add this line:
<param value="always" name="allowScriptAccess" />

and in the embed tag properties: allowscriptaccess="always"

also add the base property (just in case):
<param value="http://www.mywordpress.com/" name="base" />
base ="http://www.mywordpress.com" (in embed part)

you will write the correct name of your swf to the place of "MyFlashMovie.swf" , not trying to do the same.. also in the "src=" place; you will write your swf name
