    Yesterday someone recommended I use a flash intro on my new site, so I searched around the web for a bit and found a "template" that I like. I just need the text changed in it but unfortunately I don't have the flash program to edit it on this computer. Can anyone help me out with editing it a little?

    Also does anyone know how I would put it on my site?

    Thanks

    I personally wouldnt put a flash intro on your site. Search engines are all about content and they may have a hard time breaching your flash page.

    I know they look nice, but people dont want that anymore. People want their information in a split second... waiting for a flash intro doesnt appeal to the masses. Flash is dying, or dead in my eyes.

    That flash intro is going to hurt you more than help you for sure. It is one of the worst things you can do SEO wise for your site.

    I suppose that didnt answer your question though. You can get almost any flash editing software on a trial offer for 30 days or whatever.. then you just make a simple html page and embed the flash movie file... call the html page index.htm and thats really it
