Do it all in flash :)

Seriously though, it depends entirely on what you want to display, flash tends to look better but html is going to be a lot easier to build and update. What sort of things were you looking to show on your site?

Your site appears at the moment to be similar to mine in effect, kinda news, links and movies/resource. Mine as you'll see is HTML with flash movies stuck in there for the time being (I'm rebuilding as well :)) until I make a library for the movies, I'm going to rebuild entirely in flash.:)

build it in flash, flash is fun, it looks good, and the only downside is that it's not easy to update, which is kindof a really bad downside, but hey, it's a challenge :)

actually nighthawk, using variables and such u can make it easy to update by just updating a text file. im not sure how 2 do this but it can be done, thats why i started learning today.

Hello,

My personal preference would be for an HTML site with bits of Flash here and there where the content best suits it.

Whilst Flash can be done well , in my experience 99% of Flash only sites are a pain to use and I tend to steer clear of them.

Flash takes control away from the end user - which is normally a bad thing. Best used for small parts that are better suited to it than for the whole site.

My 2 cents.

Goynang.

Well, really if you want to make a site easy to update with lots of content, you should do a Flash/PHP or ASP/MySql site. Put all your content in to the database, then access it with the PHP or ASP.  There are a few tutorials on how to do this stuff on Flashkit. Just search for PHP or ASP or whatever. Peace,
