Flash presentation
I have a flash intro that I would like people to see when entering my site, but I don't know how to put it there (I'm using the basic editor). Would apreciate your help on this one =)

I'd rethink a flash intro as they are not search engine friendly. They can also be slow to load if you aren't careful and watch file size. That may mean less visitors. Your index page is the most important page. It needs good text content and Search Engine readable links so your site will be well indexed and well listed. JMHO.

If you still want to add flash check out macromedia.com for the code needed to embed flash.

I have to second what CW wrote. Today I've been doing a ton of research, and have run into so many pages with Flash intros that it drove me nuts. I stopped my search at most of them. If you're committed to running flash, be sure that you put in the "skip intro" link, or no one without DSL will ever come to your page.

Here's an article (link above) that anyone considering flash and/or spalsh (intro) pages should read. Your site should be fast and it's content as easy to reach as possible because that's what people expect from the net. The simpler you keep it the better. If you're going to use flash, at least use it well. There are a few tips about doing that in the article above.
