I have created an intro and would like to put it up on my site. What do I need to do?

Below is a sample of HTML code and detailed set-up explanation for the page you need to create in order to run the intro for your site.

 

To add a flash intro to your site, you will need to rename your home page (typically named index.html) to something different, and then replace the index.html file for your site with the new one created using the HTML code (modified to suit your needs) from the sample below. In the sample below, the new index.html page would display the intro for 50 seconds and then automatically go to your home page. If you entered your site URL while creating the flash intro, the user will have the option to click on the Intro banner to go to your home page immediately or wait and be redirected once the time cycle expires. If you do not enter a home page URL when creating the banner, then the visitors will not be able to bypass the intro and will be forced to wait until the intro cycle ends before they are redirected to the home page.

 

The most important line from the HTML sample code below is

<meta HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="50; URL=http://www.yourdomain.com/yourhome.html">

 

The red section needs to be modified to suit your particular situation. The 50 can be changed to make the intro cycle longer or shorter. The higher the number, the longer the intro plays before it redirects the user to the home page. This cycle time is usually determined by trial and error based on the specific Intro banner and factors like how many lines were used and how long the banner text line time cycle was set.

 

The URL portion http://www.yourdomain.com/yourhome.html needs to be changed to whatever your renamed home page is so that the banner redirects users to the proper page on your site. The rest of the items in red from the code below are pretty much self-explanatory and assume you have uploaded an Intro file named Intro.swf to your website root directory. Make sure you change that value as required for your situation. The red width and height numbers should also match the width and height of the Flash Intro banner created.

 

If this all sounds too complicated, consider using the online site builder offered by . This online site builder offers a selection of it's own Flash Intros but it also allows users to upload thier own Flash Intro files through a simple online interface and then creates all appropriate HTML coding for the proper display of the Flash Intro file.
