How can I make this an Intro to our site, that would then send the webuser to the actual home page? I tried the GETURL() function within swish, but it opens the homepage in a new window instead of using the one that the intro has finished running in.
I am using FrontPage 2002 if you have specific instructions for this editor.
Thanks in advance,
a) encourage a large proportion of visitors to leave your site immediately
b) waste the most important URL on your site: the homepage
c) make your site look dated and unprofessional
d) annoy the heck out of return visitors
An alternative would be to provide a link like "See Flash Intro here". Then after a week or two, when you check your stats and realise that hardly anyone views it, you can remove it and get back to concentrating on your content... ;)
>> getURL("http://yoururl.com", "_self")
getURL("http://yoururl.com", "_top")will get you out of any frames
>> A Flash intro will harm your traffic. It gives potential visitors an additional chance to say "good-bye" before getting to your content.
But it does depend upon your TM, for some markets the opposite is true.
>>b) waste the most important URL on your site: the homepage
Yeap, would agree wastes a lot of good ops, don't use it as a splash page, incorporate into the site design, if See TM comments
>>c) make your site look dated and unprofessional
? Well done it can improve it. See TM comments
>>d) annoy the heck out of return visitors
