I just go the finalized version of the flash intro to the PCG site.  


I have never built a site that has a flash intro before the home page.  What do i need to do to get that flash intro to appear before the homepage shows up when they go to www.pcg-advisors.com.

are you planning on having the whole of the first page flash (IE an intro that then moves on to your full site?

Yes.  With a "skip intro" link.

You have several options. I noticed you tagged this with Firefox 2.0, but this should be done on your server, independent of X/HTML or JavaScript or anything else that the browser interprets.

You have several options:

1. Change the DirectoryIndex directive in the .htaccess file in the root of your site:

- Put your Flash intro into its own page, called intro.html

- If you have a .htaccess file in your site's root directory (the same folder than "pcg-advisors.com/index.html" is in), you need to add the following line to it:

DirectoryIndex intro.html

Open in new window

Sorry, I accidentally submitted that before I was done.

Another option you have is this:

2. Rename your current "index.html" file to "home.html" and then upload your Flash intro page as "index.html" and make sure it links to "home.html" when the animation finishes.
