Flash and WordPress, is it marriage made in heaven, or one like my parent's had? (8 posts)

    I have seen several posts detailing the use of flash as a front end and wordpress as a cms/backend. Flash is of course an amazing media and I plan on taking advantage of it's powers of persuasion with my currently wordpress powered site. I know it can be done, and I'm pretty sure I can figure out the details, but I thought I'd post and see if anyone had any groundbreaking examples or advice before I get to far along.

    Thanks.

    (yeah, me too podz... i'm in a funny mood.. humor is what that is.)

    MM - That link provided me with the one missing piece of the puzzle to make this work. Use the Rss File to output to flash! It's brilliant! That lets me have my neat wordpress themed page outputed for those who detest flash, and then the uber awesome - kinda pointless - flash work at the same time. Thanks.

    the one thing that I disslike about that page, after careful thought. Is that there don't seem to be any permalinks to his entries... at least not from within the blog structure itself...

    I would be happy to help out. I like the idea of simply pulling the XML rather then remoting into the DB.

    Dear all...

    It's time to get moving on this...

    I've set up a Basecamp account so that anyone who is interested in putting together a WordPress-meets-Flash CMS can get involved, and start talking about the best way to make it happen!

    If you would like to get onboard, email me (3stripeATgmailDOTcom), and I'll set you up with a login.

    Look forward to hearing from ya!

    (Although the specifics of how it would work aren't defined yet, I'd basically love to see a WordPress extension that let you manage the text content of a Flash website. It would support static pages, and also posts to allow for blog-style or news sections which were archived, searchable, and maybe even had an rss feed into the bargain)
