OK I'm helping a buddy of mine out and he's already got his sie built for him by someone else, the index file is .php. Now I've got this little Flash animation that we want to run first, then when it's done go to his website. When I try to add it to the top of the index page all that happens is the site loads like in normally did but with the Flash movie at the top instead of being another page. What do we need to do to have it load on it's own first?
yes. the index.html should embed your flash intro swf and at the end to your swf (and in a skip intro button code) you should open the current main page (using getURL or navigateToURL).
