Inserting Wimpy Button Overview

In order to include Wimpy Button on your page, copy and paste the "source" HTML code from either the online Customizer Tool or Wimpy Button Maker. These tools will generate an HTML snippet that contains the necessary HTML code to display Wimpy Button in your web pages.

There are two flavors of the HTML code that can be used to render the button within your page:

1. Standard HTML code

Both the online Customizer Tool and Wimpy Button Maker generate "Standard HTML" code. This is the most common kind of code used to render Wimpy Button within your web page. Click here for instructions on implementing this code

Pros
- Ideal for "no strings attached" implementation
- Uses the "out of the box" HTML code that Adobe uses for implementing Flash content

Cons
- Some version of Internet Explorer may require the user to "click to activate" the button before the interactive features (e.g. pause, rewind, play) can be clicked.
- Using more than one button on a page can be problematic
- Difficult to modify manually

2. JavaScript code

Only Wimpy Button Maker Tool generates JavaScript code for use within your web page. This method leverages a small JavaScript "script" to render the player within a web page. Although no HTML or JavaScript authoring is required to use this option, there are a few things to be aware of before implementing this method. Click here for instructions on implementing this code

Pros
- Easy to modify
- No "click to activate" for certain versions of Internet Explorer
- XHTML compliant (Will pass the strict W3C XHTML standards test)
- Ideal for using multiple buttons on a single page

Cons
- Additional JavaScript files must be handled correctly
- Intended for more advanced webmasters
