I have just downloaded the SIFR module as I want to test it out for background colour on headlines.

In the README doc that comes with download it says...

For use with SilverStripe
   * Create a 'fonts' folder in your theme. Eg themes/blackcandy/fonts/
   * Drop your sifr flash file in this file.
I did not see a SIFR flash file. Do I need to download this from somewhere else before I start this process??

You have to generate your font swf file using the sifr.fla file which you can download from or by using the which works pretty well.

Sorry didn't see your 2nd post. Have a read of for using it with a transparent bg. You might have to edit the code in sifr/code/Sifr.php.

Thanks for response.

Do you know what I mean about wrapping bgcolor around text? so text does have color behind it - but this bgcolor wraps with text. Is this possible? reason being with html you can not padd it out at end of line.

I know this is not specifically silverstripe but if not possible with SIFR I do not want to waste time trying to do it.

Thanks for help dude!
