    Should I use flex for my website

      Hey, I am having trouble figuring out if I should be using flex for a site similar to the BBC site: http://www.bbc.co.uk. I have started the site in flex but I am running into a lot of problems. It could be that I am a newbie to Flex, but wanted to make sure if I should still be going a head with this in Flex. Any advice would be appreciated.

      Thank you,
      Vinny

          I would say that if you don't know the answer to that question, then the
          answer is probably no. You need to have a pretty firm understanding of how
          sites like that work under the hood before trying to build one in Flex.

            Also, if you are thinking of building the entire site as a Flex app, as long as it does not need SEO, that's okay, but Google and other search engines will be less successful at indexing your site.
