This is an update to a previous post where I explained how to “tweak” an Artisteer theme to add a Flash header.
Two things have happened since I wrote that post. First, the plugin used to create the Flash header – Flash Fader Revived – has been removed from WordPress, nowhere to be found. Second, starting with release 2.4, Artisteer has incorporated the Flash header capability into the software. What this means is that now you don’t have to “tweak” any files to add a Flash header to your theme. On the other hand, now you have to provide a Flash “movie” to be displayed in the header area.
To take care of the Flash movie, I have found a great simple program called Amara Slide Show Builder. With this program you only add the pictures you want, set the size, the transitions and let it create the Flash movie for you. You don’t have to know any Flash whatsoever.
To your WordPress success,
