I'm creating a site that has two things it must contain.
1.) A registration page where the user must enter their email
address(which is forwarded to the site owner's email address)
They must enter this to access a certain section of the site.
2.)A blog which can be updated by the site owner whenever
they like without having to edit the fla. file.
Any ideas or pointers in the right direction would be much
I'm trying to develop a site with your exact same needs.
For your 1st query i would cheat and simply create a folder
on your server that has password protection via htaccess for
example. Put the site section / content you require in that folder
and link to it via your flash site. The browser will ask the user
for a username / password and then will take the user to your
content. Perhaps not the most elegant of solutions but it's by far
the quickest to deploy.
as far as your blog query - i'm using wordpress as my
blogging engine (wordpress.org). Then I'm using a flash skin to
load it in a swf which I found here -
Otherwise you could use something like this
These will take xml output from most blogging sw and display it in
your flash page.
