    I’ve downloaded your plugin, but there are no demo-settings.xml file. Where i can download it?

  2. Jen

    Hi! Love the plugin. I’d like to put the accordion in my header, so it appears between the primary and secondary menu. Is this possible? I’m using the Weaver theme and the current version of WP

  3. Iain


    Is it possible to embed the slider into a template using php rather than on a page with a short code?


    • Flashtuning

      Yes, you can use the following php function: xtremeAccordionEcho(width,height,xmlFile) . If you download the plugin, make sure to check the readme file.

  4. Website

    Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am inspired! Extremely useful info specially the final section 🙂 I care for such information a lot. I was looking for this particular info for a long time. Thanks and good luck.

  5. Pete

    Can you remove the navigation buttons and scroller?

    • Pete

      Just found the settings in the demo-settings.html file. Thanks.

  6. CBreeze

    Can you tell me how to insert alt tags in the xml file for each image? Thanks.

    • Flashtuning

      Edit the content xml file and look at the menuitem tag, it contains 3 sub-tags -> media , title and text . Simply duplicate the menuitem tag and edit the entries.

  7. Same

    hi, please how do you embed the plugin in a template?

  8. Kerry

    Can I embed multiple images in one “slide”? What about a image and video?

    • Flashtuning

      I don’t know if it’s possible to insert multiple images in the same slide but it may be possible if you embed your images inside an external swf and put that swf instead an image. The same for video you can embed a video player playing a video inside an external swf and put that swf instead an image.

    • Flashtuning

      It works just fine, open the index.html file inside the download package and check the parameter settings for the flash object and embed tags. For more info send an email and your paypal transaction id at contact [at] flashtuning.net .

  10. Pedro Pereira


    Can I link each tab of the accordion to a page in a website? Can you tell me how?


    Pedro M Pereira

    • Flashtuning

      Sure, edit the demo-content.xml file inside the download package and look at the first media tag all supported attributes you will see the link attribute and all other attributes that can be used are very clear explained there.

  11. Jennifer

    I love this accordion menu! But I am having a little trouble with it. When I view the swf file in firefox and internet explorer from my root directory, it works beautifully. However, when I embed the swf into my webpage, it shows nothing but a blank screen. Please help!

    • Flashtuning

      The download package has an index.html page example on how ho embed the swf file into a html page. Edit the index.html and look at the source to see how the swf was embedded.

    Hi, Just purchased the “Special Offer: All Files Package” where do I find the Xtreme Accordian for wordpress:

    Many thanks


  13. robinson

    Support Does it support wordpress 3.2.1 version?
    What is the procedure to download, after purchase?
    I would like to publish an article on my site about your promotion

    • Flashtuning

      Yes,instant download after purchase.

  14. mburp

    In the WordPress version can the background color be changed or removed so it will match the page color?



    • Flashtuning Support

      You can make the background tranparent. For that go to wp-content/plugins/xtreme-accordion folder and open xtreme-accordion.php

      At line 52 change the wmode property from window to transparent. Save the file and refresh the page.

      $xtreme_accordion_param = array("quality" =>	"high", "bgcolor" => "", "wmode"	=>	"window", 
      "version" =>	"9.0.0", "allowfullscreen"	=>	"true", "scale" => "noscale", "salign" => "TL", "allowscriptaccess" => "samedomain");

  17. Eric

    I want to increase the size of the accordion but it doesn’t seem to go beyond 600pix. I’ve downloaded the free demo to see if I want to buy and increasing the size of the viewer is important. Can you help? Thanks.

    • Flashtuning

      You need to edit the html page and adjust the width and height for the flash object and embed tags and also edit the configuration xml file and adjust the size.

      • Eric

        Disregard last comment. I got it to work. Can you give me the line of code to change for this option. (Adjust height and width of flash player nd embed tags as well as edit xml file. Thanks. I like the accordion but need to make sure it works like I need it to. Thanks.

    • Eric

      Thanks. Just reloaded it it follow your direction and when I try to activate plugin, it says invalid header.

    • Rui Campos

      Although we intend to purchase the comercial version, I´ve tryed a 750 X 220 pix test with the demo version. After editing demo-settings and 3 lines in the index.html, the size remained 600 x 220. Did I missed something?

      Can we have 750 x 220 in the comercial version

      • Flashtuning Support

        The free version has restricted dimensions. In the full version you can resize the accordion as you like.

      • Rui Campos

        OK, tests are doing well but we have a final issue [I hope] to solve : how to use accented characters (á ã etc) in titles and text boxes. I´ve tried the index.html with the utf-8 character set but it didn´t work.
        Can you help? Thanks

        • Rui Campos

          Can you help us in using accented characters in the text box?

          • FlashTuning Support

            From what I remember, Flash exports in the swf only a set of characters depending on the locale of the machine it is run on. Some characters may be missing because of that (the original swf should be able to print characters like Æ»€âæèêíó).

            There’s a fonts folder in the Library of the fla file. Make sure the font files there are exported for action script with the right name (default should be “Default” / “Default bold”). After that you just need to export a new swf on a machine which has the OS locale (location, language, etc.) set to the appropriate country/language so that it includes the needed characters.

            Make sure to save the fla for Flash CS3 or CS4 (in the save dialog) (the fonts in CS5 are handled differently).

  18. Greg Richardson

    how do I get rid of the flashtunning.net icon in the swf file? Can i buy a version and just replace the swf file in the folder?


    • Flashtuning

      You need to buy a productlicense to get rid of the ft logo. After that you can replace the swf.

      • Greg Richardson

        Thanks, just didnt want to have to recreate everything from scratch

    • Greg Richardson

      I noticed a feature in one of the other image galleries called tooltip, is this setting or code available for the accordian? or is there a way to keep the text box from coming on unless I click it?


  19. Klemen

    Hi! (6 day and still no answer from you?)

    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 (after recompiling)?!? It did work prior to recompiling the file.

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

  20. abeer

    I liked the control but there is 2 problems:

    1- when i added long paragraph only part of it appears and no scrolling to view the rest of the text.

    2- I tried to add .swf file inside one of the Items but nothing is displayed
    (note: i added it in CDATA in the text child of a menuItem in demo-content.xml
    This is what i added:
