    Next Version?

    O K

    I would be excited to see width as a percent in the next version.

    Change Font http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-chgfontsize/
    eventually added % as width choice and has been on my page since.

    Love your work!

    • Flashtuning

      Thanks, we’ll take this into consideration.

    Hi guys, awesome Worpress plugin, works great for me!
    (check it out on http://www.when-is.com.au)

    Happy to promote you brand, however it shows rather large in my case. any chance of making it a bit smaller?


    • Flashtuning

      your link does not work.

      • Rich

        Ummm… does for me. What does it say?
        Could you google the link pls?

  3. tunr


    Changing width to a percentage triggers ‘fatal error’.
    It appears your coding does not handle percentages or ‘auto’ width
    nor are there any user selection for ‘auto’ or width as a ‘%’

    • Flashtuning

      In this version you can use only fixed size for width / height.

  4. tunr

    How would I set accordion width to 100% of its container to go with my fluid style theme //set width to !00% of its container .attr(‘width’, ‘100%’); ?

    • Flashtuning

      Edit the html page where the flash object resides and adjust the width and height values of the object and embed tags. If you are using the AC_FL_RunContent) javascript function or other similar function to insert a flash object inside a html page edit the width / height parameters from the parameters list of the function.

    You can download and test the Free version before buying by following the free accordion component download link from the product description.

    Regarding popup window you need to use javascript. Check question number 18, 19 and other useful questions from the FAQ area on our site:

    I got it installed and working on my website (http://thinkspace.com) but I’m running into an issue with Google Chrome where the nav menu is dropping behind the Accordion flash object. I’ve been reading up on the issue and z-index keeps on being referenced as a solution:

    Set the z-index of the div holding the flash to 1 and the z-index of the div holding the nav to 2.

    Is this something that you’ve experienced and can it be changed?


  7. Alex

    Is it possible to have multiple accordions using this plugin? I got the free version and I can only create one type of accordion slider. If i want to have multiple ones with different content on my website, is that possible?

  8. Theresa Mc

    I tried the demo version and finally got it to work perfectly. THen when I purchased the menu I can’t get it to function. It shows the menu until you mouse over any part and then it all moves to the left and you can only see the last menu item. Please help. I am 3 days past due on a client website and I need to get this working!!!

  9. Kees Hessels

    I am trying out this very nice accordion component, but my menu, when unfolding, disappears behind the accordion component. Do i miss some option to change this?

    • Flashtuning Support


      Set the wmode property to “transparent”, in the object tag, where the accordion swf is embeded.

      • Kees Hessels

        I changed:
        ‘wmode’, ‘window’,
        in index.html to
        ‘wmode’, ‘transparent’,
        but no effect

        Can you give me some more hints?

        Have a look at: http://www.kasteelschaesberg.info/wpress/

        • Flashtuning Support


          Now I see that you use the accordion wordpress plugin.

          You have to enter the xtreme-accordion.php plugin file, located under wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-accordion folder. At line 52, change the wmode to “transparent”. Now it should work.

            And it did. Thanks!!

    I am interested on buying the component but i can`t wiew russian text. I tried to change encoding utf-8 to Windows -1251 but it didn`t worked.
    What else i can do?

    Best Regards

    • FlashTuning Support


      It’s better to leave the xml files in utf-8, since that’s how the parser expects them to be.
      To add the Russian characters you need to recompile the swf using a machine with the Russian locale (the regional settings are set to Russia).
      Flash only includes the characters relevant to the current locale (to avoid bloating the file).

        Because i wanted to use ČŽŠ characters, i opened swf file and published it again. Now it shows čžš characters (seen on the second slide on my webpage) but it does not show slide titles any more.
        Also, on the first slide i used css text formatting and now it doesn’t work any more?!? It did work prior to recompiling the file.

        What is wrong? I paid for it and i expect it to work properly…

  11. Omar

    Downloaded free version of WordPress, but I have a little problem autoplay scrolls and becomes the fourth slide in this slide,
    I wanted to set the slides in autoplay. The second question is whether it is possible to change the size of slides so that slides accordionie opened in several sizes
    Thank you sorry for english

  12. Name *Patrice

    I purchased X-Treme Accordion XML AS3 and having a problem getting it loaded into my page in Dreamweaver. New to this so know I’ve missed a step, but what do I say to insert? Flash file? HTML? SWF? or?

    • Flashtuning


      Thank you for your purchase. Check question number 11 and other useful questions from the FAQ area on our site.


  13. damian

    CAn you please tell me how to put it into index.php .

    • FlashTuning Support


      You just need to add the script that inserts the swf inside your html code.
      The archive you’ve downloaded already includes an example.
      As an alternative, you can look up swfobject and use that.

      Best regards,
      FlashTuning Support

  14. Jit Mukherjee


    why I am simply unable to put the script on work?
    What I have found in your site is just missing here.
    Point 1. I have downloaded and installed the wordpress plugin
    downloaded the free version as per the instruction says.

    If I put the command in the page or post it works great, however I want to use it on the front page ie index.php of the wordpress site. But i found no instruction to do that.

    Could you please provide the instruction how to put the effect on the front page, please?

  15. felson

    how do i deactivate and delete x-treme accordion. it’s not showing up on my plugins list.

    • Flashtuning Support


      Enter to your ftp server and go to wp-content/plugins. There should be xtreme-accordion folder. Delete it. If you want to reinstall just re-copy the plugin there. Also make sure you put the accordion files in wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-accordion.

    I am interested on buying the component but, I notice I can not use it bigger than 600 x 400 px
    is there a chance to do it?
    I need it 920 x 640 px

    • Flashtuning Support


      Yes, it’s possible. If you tried the free version, make sure you modified the

      <object param="menuWidth"  value="600" /> 
      <object param="menuHeight" value="350" /> 

      from demo-settings.xml and also change the width and height values from the index.html, where the swf file is embeded, according to your needs.

    whats happening, you honestly have a extensive and educative website! I will be bookmarking it definitely! Many thanks.

  18. Ami

    I bought the Accordion-XML_AS3 template and i have a question.
    I need to change frequently the images and the text in that flash, every day (for a dynamic site), so how can i do this easily without the need to enter to xml file every time and look for the right line and change there the name of the images (for the new images),and the same for the text?


    • FlashTuning Support


      I’d recommend using a simple content management system (there’s no simpler way to do this).
      Have the xml be returned by some script that reads the info you need from a database.
      You can then implement an admin interface script that you can use to modify the database.
      Remember to use some sort of anti-caching strategy (google “flash xml no cache”).

  19. jim

    Turn off the buttons using the settings under “showAutoPlayBtn” in demo-settings.xml

  20. Name *Dave

    Is there a way to hide the play and forward and back buttons? I’d like to have it only work when users click on a tab. I see how to suppress the scroll bar, but not the buttons.

    • FlashTuning Support

      Sorry, but the buttons don’t have an autohide feature (you can only hide them completely showNextItemBtn/showPrevItemBtn properties).

      Best regards,
      FlashTuning Support
