Changing a site from php/html to Flash
Meet the New Boss, Not the Same as the Old Boss

Hi all,

I'm looking to put together a quote for a client. The site in question was set up to run from a mysql database, displaying pages containing images and text. The database was essential as the client can add their own content, and as such there are hundreds of pages of content.

The client has asked that I make a few little additions to the site's functionality, and while I'm doing that I should convert it to flash.

Thankfully the format for each page is similar, a number of pictures with a text description beneath. I can imagine pulling the data from the database via a "text" file type import.

Another consideration is that the client would like the addition of several new sections of the site, also fed from the database (so that they can regularly add content). This would mean that my solution should be easy to extend.

With little experience of flash I want to make sure I don't approach it from the wrong angle. Thankfully also, there's a visual designer on board to do the graphics (photoshop comps).

Would you have any suggestions for the way to handle this. One of the things I find difficult to work out is whether to have the site work through one url, so that transitions between the "sections" of the site are smoother, or to try to retain the current SEO-friendly url format.

Once I work out how to approach this, I'll be able to work out how long it might take and offer an estimate. So any suggestions much appreciated.
