The bad thing about Flash is that some people do not have viewers/plugins. The good thing is that you can do subtle things like this with only a few minutes available...

I hate having a crappy old comp. Can't download much or the speed goes downhill.



To prove how fast computers get outdated:

I got my comp 2-4 years ago (can't remember). It was pretty good back then and it has only 333mhz, 6 GB HD, and 32 megs of ram. In modern terms, a piece of junk that you probably couldn't even buy.

Nah... just toying around. I wouldn't recommend changing the current logo to a flash version. Some people do not have the supported the plugin.

It is much more important to have something that everyone can see.

There are ssi that allow you to check for the flash plugin and if it is not available, place an image in its place.

But that gets pretty advanced sometimes. Do you check on every page... do you pass values between pages after checking one time, etc.

To save the headache... he should keep what he has, and perhaps decorate in other ways.... (DHTML... etc)

Use javascript


something like
<script Language='javascript'>

If(fplugin !=false){
//whatever displays flash images here
}else{
<img "logo.gif"> //I think
}

</script>

I believe that it is a bit more difficult to detect the flash plugin than that ;), but yeah essentially something along those lines would be what you have to do.


<embed height= width= src="flash.swf">

You can also do it will an actual flash movie...

You make a movie that is the smallest it can be and make it load a url. Then you put a timeout on the html document with a different url. If they have flash, the flash movie runs and redirects them to the flash site. If they do not, the html redirect sends them to the non flash site.
