I represent a site builder company. For all of you who don’t know a site builder company is, in plain English is a hosted software that lets you build and edit a site extremely easy. It is WYSWYG that works directly on the server. So the general procedure is to start with a template and customize to your needs. While it so easy to modify HTML template, we have no way to customize flash templates. Unfortunately our programmers don’t have much Flash experience. So what we will need is an actual Flash programmer that will do some consulting for us or even help us with some of the programming of this feature. In terms of qualifications if you are familiar with any online tools that let you build your own flash banners and such you already ahead of the game. Experience with actionscript is clearly another key component
I also pasted my programmers description for more technical knowledge
WHAT do we DO?
* We have a php-based website builder product. It builds and manages websites.
* One of its features is the management of web design templates
* These template designs are customizable in many ways by the user (e.g. heading text, menu navigation, etc) through our system. For example, we have a feature called "Menu Navigation" where the user builds their site's navigation structure (i.e. Choosing which pages should display as main menu items, which pages are sub pages of those main pages, etc). Then we automatically apply this navigation structure to their design template without them having to edit the template's html file at all.
HOW DO YOU ALLOW FOR CUSTOMIZATION OF TEMPLATE ELEMENTS IN A NORMAL HTML TEMPLATE?
* The way we allow customization of these elements (e.g. menu navigation, logo images, slogan text, etc) in normal html templates is we make those elements varables in the template html. So if you view the html for one of our design templates it will have the text "#slogan#" where the slogan text is meant to appear.
HOW ARE THESE VARIABLES REPLACED WITH THE USERS SETTINGS?
* When a page is loaded through our system, we simply scan the template's html file for the variable text (e.g., "#slogan#", replace it with the user's set text (e.g., "The best widgets in the world."), and then display the modified template html.
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
* The problem is that we can't do this as easily with a Flash elements. That's the question we're trying to answer. That's the solution we're trying to find/invent: What's the easiest way to make elements inside a flash movie "variable" so that they can be replaced at runtime from data outside themselves?
It would probably be easier to make a hours bid
