    So, i was fucking stumped.
    I have a quick website to build for the weekend. Plan was to grab a wordpress theme, do some small quick mods and add the content, xxx, profit.

    So, one of the major issues was to replace the header image with a flash embeded swf. So, easily done.
    Grab the header.php file, remove the image or the call to the image and replace with your embed script.

    Issue...
    I loved the fact that any new pages added with wp showed new tabs across the top of the navigation. When I replaced the flash, the flash was overtop the navi menu. This sucked.

    Quick google to find out how to layer flash in html and i was soon off on a 500 lines of code horrific adventure...
    Meanwhile, if I just exported the html in flash as transparent and grabbed the embed code from it and pasted it into the header, omg, my menus appeared as intended.

    Doesnt seem like much, but i love when shit comes together.

    Cliffs..
    - was stuck on customizing wp theme.
    - google returned gay ass code
    - figured it out in like 4 minutes and saved myself a night of bullshit.
    - now can probably post how to use a flash header on a wp theme too.

    :coold: .. wp is pretty easy to customize and when the "client" doesnt know about it, it makes your job 11ty billion times easier and makes you seem like an awesome designer n whatnot

    Did you get approval from Perez? I don't think this may fly with him.

    Subversion is on my to-do list. But I really gotta put all my programming assignments first.
