Hi everyone, I thought I was purchasing a unique website from a developer found off Craigslist, days later I discovered that It was a template(not mad yet) and that the guy didn't even change the stock flash photo on the entry page. (Now I'm a bit bothered). He's M.I.A. obviously so I have two questions-
I've tried to edit content (words) and every time I do after I save it the flash header now longer loads. I have to restore from a backup to have a working website. WHY? Is it because both my HTML editor and my server's edit option don't support flash- ie when I save it it save without the flash? What is a solution for this?
Also, since this site has been regergitated a billion times, eventually I'll need to change the header. How difficult will this be? Thanks every one in advance.
Without seeing the page and/or code, it's hard to assess the situation. Regardless, the Flash banner will still be just a peice of page content that should be easily replacable, just like anything else on the page.
Not sure what you mean by
both my HTML editor and my server's edit option don't support flash
What is there to stop you from editing in some Flash content any place on the page you choose? Sounds like a problem with your HTML editor and/or server's edit option as well as with your Web site template. There may be some other issue related to a missing file or pathing instead of not supporting Flash.
Any attemp I've made at editing text has caused the header not to load.
(1 item remaining meesage in bottom left) and it just never happens.
I don't know anything about flash. I assumed that it didn't support it due to the fact that when I open the html file to edit, the header doesn't appear. Maybe that's normal, I thought the two mayt be related.
If after looking at the site you have any suggestions....
Thanks for looking. Good to know it at least works for other folks too.
It works here too, however, If I were to chancge one word in the text below,
The header would disapear on the reload. So everytime I 've attempted to change the text I ultimately end up reverting back to an older backup of the original.
What are you using to do the editing and how are you uploading that updated file to your server?
Since the Flash file is already on the server, there should not be any problem with it showing up again.
For testing purposes, perhaps you could create a index2, the broken version, upload and let us see that. it won't be available to the public and you can take it down when done.

I've just grabbed the file and changed all of the text at the bottom - reloads fine!?
