please guys someone must know :(
You could place an image container on the stage, have this loaded thru an external XML file where each comic strip would be date stamped ( remember not everybody is on the same day around the world). This XML file could also be used as your Archive search function because you don't want a user to select a date you don't have.
The XML file would contain the target url of the Strip and its date, your XML Parser could compare the System Date with your Date Stamp and show the appropriate image on the appropriate date. A big plus is you can set-up dates in advance and they will only show on the date you choose.
Hope it helps
I would just use attachMovie() and then make a PHP file that grabs the date, and make some if statements based on the dates. And then make a terminating date. Have php send the right URL to the flash file in a variable and then use that in flash to know which to load.
i know its cheeky but i'm just wondering if you know a script that would do this or know how to write one? :)
