Hey everyone!

I have this idea, and I think there are only a very few things like this. I can’t do it (yet), it’s already been made, but not left and right. Correct me if I’m wrong, but afaik there is no such template around here.

The base problem is that there are all kinds of CMS around the net, but personally I haven’t seen one for a flash site. I guess there is, however, and those are custom made for a specific template which is very nice.

What if you think about this in reverse? The CMS already exists, you “just” need to create a big flash template to handle the content. From menus to blog posts, tag clouds, pages, comments, all kind of things, with the power of flash of course. Animations, preloaders for posts, nice transitions, text effects, music without interruption, transparency on every browser, compatibility. Think about it. Like all those top notch news reader components you saw on activeden. Could be used for wordpress blog entries. Which are not stored in some XML , but in the database of wordpress, and edited with the standard and well known admin interface. Sounds good eh?

So, I hope I opened the eyes of someone who can do stuff like this. Anyway, please post flash wordpress themes if you know any, as I’m interested in them. Thank you.

Most of that can be achieved with jQuery, without sacrificing the flexibility of being able to change the look and feel of the site with HTML /PHP/CSS/Javascript. There is also the SEO advantage if you avoid Flash.

That said, since a Flash template can read an XML file, and Wordpress can output XML via PHP , what’s to stop you from connecting the two?

This is the closest thing I have found so far: http://activeden.net/item/rocfolio-2-flash-wordpress-template/101207 Although, HTML5 , jQuery, and other technologies are better there are still a lot of things very difficult to accomplish without FLASH .
