    Changing the default page for the index to a flash file Link to this post

    I've been working on a silver stripe rebuilding of an existing website and have almost completed the process.

    Client's really happy with silver stripe functionality - however the client's requested that we have the www.sitedomain.com redirect to a flash file.

    However, I'm concerned because I know that if there isn't a page labelled as home in the navigation, it will recreate the home page.

    (Which technically they don't want, they just wanted a about-us [but I have that working with the display set to about us and navigation setting for home])

    Any ideas on how best to get this to work with silverstripe? Preferably in a way that works better than their current site -where it only works with ie 6, not ie 8, chrome, firefox or safari.

    (The flash file is set up to mimic the appearance of the current site and have the names of the members of that site float around over the top - and users can click into the main site. It's not important, but the client likes it.)

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    ETA: I fixed this by creating a home page for holding the flash document on www.sitedomain.com, and then selecting the option to not display in site menu's - my bad for not realising that was an option before posting this here.
