Problem: Java Applet doesn’t load on a WordPress page.


I tried to embed a Java Applet into my WordPress page. The applet worked perfectly on an HTML page, but when I pasted it into the WordPress page, it didn’t show. What’s wrong?


Make sure there’re no line breaks in your applet code. WordPress adds <p> and <br /> tags automatically, while this doesn’t happen in an HTML page. So if your applet code is:

<APPLET name=”IpixViewer”
width=”320″ height=”240″>
<PARAM NAME=”toolbar” VALUE=”on”>
<PARAM NAME=”initfov” VALUE=”80″>

Make sure when you paste it in your WordPress page, it should be all in one line of code, like this:

<APPLET name=”IpixViewer” code=”IpixViewer.class” archive=”IpixViewer.jar” width=”320″ height=”240″><PARAM NAME=”url” VALUE=”YOURIMAGE.ipx”><PARAM NAME=”toolbar” VALUE=”on”><PARAM NAME=”initfov” VALUE=”80″></APPLET>

That should solve your problem.
