FreeMind WP Browser


This has been a modification of Joshua Eldridge’ Flash Video Player. Powered by visorFreemind.swf from FreeMind Flash Browser and SWFObject by Geoff Stearns. This plugin allows graphic visualization of mindmaps created with FreeMind by embedding them to WordPress posts using flash. It looks for [freemind file="" /] shortcode in post to embed it in a Flash presentation of the FreeMind mindmap file (.mm format).


Use [freemind file="" /] shortcode to embed *.mm FreeMind mindmap file to a WordPress post.
An example is [freemind file="../mind-map/" /] where mind-map directory exists with inside it and the WordPress domain lies is in the same tree position (i.e.some-wordpress-directory) relative from the web root.

As the width of an actual FreeMind file is usually large, adjustment can be done from Freemind ‘Options’ panel to make it appear in a single-uniform size of width and height in the post flow.


  • Example of a post showing embedded .mm file over flash
  • 'Options' menu to modify width and height for the whole mind map appearance


  1. Upload the whole freemind-wp-browser directory and content to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

ਅਕਸਰ ਪੁੱਛੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਸਵਾਲ

I have activated the plugin, flash supported browser, but don’t see the mindmap in the post. What do I do?

Check and make sure that you have the appropriate path of the mindmap

  • First release.


Add two files due to 404 statistics showing that mediaplayer/visorFreemind.swf is making reference to them:

  1. basically just a dummy FreeMind file (when no .mm file loaded and the flash projector is called)
  2. flashfreemind.css which is also added to the SWFObject rendering variable as CSS File

These are minor workarounds. The best is of course to work directly with the flash sources and remove those references.
