Few Questions

  1. How do I add a link which is outside the main flash site, so I can add Skip Intro so people don’t have to wait for the intro to load up.

  2. How do I add sound to my site with Play/Stop and for the sound to download without having to wait for everything to download

  3. Is it possible to allow selected people to subit news to a site, so I dont have to do it for them??

Bump .

  1. Have your actual main flash site on a different page and file than your intro. Then just create an HTML link to the main site page. Or you could just have the skip intro during the preloader (as well as after) that way they can choose to skip it while it is preloading the intro…

2)Hmm, the only thing I can tell you about this is http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/loading.asp - scroll to the bottom of that page and read about “Load .mp3 dynamically with Flash MX”

3)It is possible if you can find a PHP script that allows people to log in and write news and it exports it to an external .txt file. Then you can load that text file into Flash. http://www.nphp.net is the news updater I use, it exports into a .txt file too, so you might want to try it out. You obviously need PHP support on your server though.

To learn how to scroll dynamically loaded text (and to dynamically load it for that matter) check out this link… http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/dynamic_scroller.asp

If your server doesn’t support PHP, I guess you can give those people access to your server, then they can edit the .txt file as needed, it would be easier with PHP, but not impossible without. Also maybe a CGI method.
