Solved How do I add a flash intro to my forum?

Post by ejacobus on June 17th 2011, 4:31 am

I have made an intro that I want to be seen when they go to my site.

This is the intro: www.wix.com/platinumville/platinumville

How do I fix the site so that's what they will see first when going to my forum site address?

(I'm blonde and technically challenge so pls go slow ty)

Code:
<iframe height="410" width="100%" frameBorder="0" src="http://www.wix.com/platinumville/platinumville">Your browser does not support IFRAMEs</iframe>

Add this code to a html page.
http://help.forumotion.com/frequently-asked-questions-f5/creating-an-html-page-t13528.htm
Make it your homepage. Don't use the footer & header.

Also, change the height from 410 to something that suits your requirement correctly.

When I change the height I have a scroll bar - any way for it to show in the screen without the scroll bar?

This is what I mean

Also WIX wants me to do this:

Wix Name Servers (DNS) Recommended
Manage your domain using Wix name servers
(domain records, email)

How to:
Go to your domain registrar - where you bought your domain from
Update your domain to the following name servers:

How do I do that?

May I remind you that double/triple posting isn't tolerated unless separated by 24 hours (Use the edit button) Wink
It requires a login for your homepage.

Right I can't get it in the homepage - totally lost.

I created the html page and put the code in there

It tells me:
This page cannot be set as the homepage until you insert a link to the website forumotion.com.

We propose you 2 way :
- either a standard link :

- or a banner available at this address

Then, you will only have to insert the code in the field below to set this page as forum homepage.

I think my problem is I'm not linked correctly from wix to my forum, but I don't know how to get linked right.

It means that your html page needs a link to Forumotion.

I totally dont understand that.

One of that tabs I set up has a button that says forum and is linked to the forum. I'm assuming that doesn't quite do the job since that hasn't worked.

I just don't get where in the wix I'm supposed to put the Forumotion link

Ok by some massive miracle - it's linked now but there's this weird scroll bar I don't know why that's there and it's not sized right.

www.platinumville.net and you should see it now (the flash part)

I do not see a scroll bar at all. I see the menu to the left and the image and text in the middle.

I see the scroll bar... He must be using a 15'' screen xD
If the screen is 15'' the browser will add automatically the scroll bars, I think, because the user has to be able to scroll so as to see all the content...

I finally did get it - ugh this was grueling to understand.

I had a friend help me and I think he took the embedded wix code and used that instead of another I was given to use and the scroll bar went away.

I didn't understand that the link that shows in red on the admin panel I needed to post below this code in the HTML page window.

Finally this over lol
