I have a flash animation that plays automatically when the user lands on the homepage of my site. It's part of the header, so it's present on every subsequent page of the site as well. However, I would like it to NOT play on the other pages. It should be visible, but only display the first frame or so of the animation, rather than playing automatically on every page.
How do I stipulate that in the code? Is there a line I can add somewhere?
Thanks for any help.
You can try passing a variable into the movie on the other pages. You could also just create a second version for the other pages of the file that doesn't animate.
the easiest thing to do, is to create two different swfs. one for the home page (that you've already made) and one for the other pages which will be the same as the one you have now except you want to add a stop() to the swf's first frame.
