Avoiding Flash? (3 posts)

    Hi guys,
    I'm new to actually installing themes myself. I plan to buy a theme, rather than use a free wordpress theme. I'm wondering how I can know if the theme contains flash (which, I want to avoid). I know the theme sites always list what files are being used, but I have no idea what flash files are.

    For example, in a theme like this, how would I know for sure, that no flash is used?

    I know this must be extremely basic, but I figure the way to learn, is to ask. Thank you!

    Yes, but you'd best ask the theme vendor. No way for anyone here to look at commercial themes without paying for them.

    You can tell if Flash being used a couple of ways.

    • Right-click on anything that looks "Flashy". If the Flash utility menu appears, you've got Flash. If it doesn't then no flash is used.
    • You can also view the code source in your browser. Search for Flash stuff like "object", "embed", "swf", "flv", and "f4v". If you can't find any of these words, probably isn't any flash

    I looked at the demo you provided and was not able to find any flash elements being used. However, I suppose the safest and most sure way to know is by asking the author.
