  • Is there any massive problems with using a flash navigation inside modx that i would need to be aware of? i know i shouldn’t really be using flash as a navigation but the client is insisting and as they will not be adding pages to the site- they will just be editing existing pages and not the flash, so that makes it less trouble. Whats the best way of embedding the flash. Can i just do it like i normally would
    <div id="divFlashNav2">
    <script type="text/javascript">

    • Probably best to put the object tags for the flash in a chunk, then put the chunk tags in your template. Otherwise, just put it in the way you would a static HTML document. MODx doesn’t care.

      I’m not a Flash programmer, but I know one or two, and it is possible to make a dynamic Flash menu using the MODx document database.

      • cheers for the info sotwell. i will look into dynamic flash menus in a couple of months i think...
        • a really cool thing (i think ^^) is to output your documents with ditto or wayfinder in text/XML format.. and then you load the XML with flash...
