i.e change to using either 'FreshWDL' or steel gauges or the homeweather template

WDL will still work until end of 2020 though when Flash is no longer supported. Shockwave is different to Flash.

Shameful. I still use WDL as a display in my classroom.

Puffin browser supports flash on my phone.

Looks like Chrome sealed it fate. I cannot get any WDL to load on my home laptop.

Still mad

In Chrome, click on the padlock symbol to the left of the URL, go to site settings and "allow" Flash.

If anyone knows how to get WDL in Microsoft Edge (Win 10 version 1809) please let me know!

That only works for the current Chrome session.

Save this code to a .reg file, then double click the file and 'Merge' it when asked:

Code: [Select]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome]
"DefaultPluginsSetting"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Google\Chrome\PluginsAllowedForUrls]
"1"="http://*"
"2"="https://*"

Can you do the same for Edge? (See my modified post above!)

You can try.  It won't harm anything.  I'm on Windows 7 - highest I plan to go  :D

I am not specifically answering the question; however, to enable Flash in Edge..
On your computer, open Microsoft Edge.
On the top right-hand corner, click the icon.
Click Settings near the bottom of the menu that appears.
Click View advanced settings under the Advanced Settings header.
Toggle Use Adobe Flash Player to On.

I only use this for Stormvue but the roadmap should see the shift to HTML5 .

Doesn't work in Win 10 version 1809 - hence my question.
