  • 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.

                Why is your logo dependent on the meaning of the restaurant's name? A logo should represent not only the restaurant, but it's intended clientele, mood, atmosphere, emotion, maybe cuisine, etc. There are...
