  • Flash for web design, a good idea.....

    I am in the process of designing a website for which I need to use Flash. Do you think it would be a good idea to design it completely in Flash?

    Depends on your design and the purpose of the site. If you can avoid it, I would recommend it.

        I've done several websites in flash, but never "completely" in flash. It wouldn't be very dynamic without CSS, PHP, JS, and XML.

          You can send back data in form of XML to flash from PHP, ASP, etc. So it is possible to create a fully dynamic site in flash.

            google and others will never be able to see your content. If that matters build your site in html and have embedded flash elements

              Not entirely true, but to get proper indexing I would stick with using Flash for individual elements as and when required.

              Also check out jQuery, you can do a lot very simply with AJAX and the provided effects nowadays, whereas before they could only be done in Flash.

                The actual recipes are a mix of semi-Hawaiian and authentic Hawaiian (e.g. Koi, Haupia and Kulolo are proper Hawaiian Desserts, but then Manju Cake, Bibingka Cake, Chocolate Tofu Mousse pie and Hawaiian...

                Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

                You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

                I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

                Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

                No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...
