Flash Header Creator/Editor
Looking to recreate the flash banner creator/editor based on the .swf file found below with the following changes.
[url removed, login to view]
1. Creates a 671 X 70 pixel flash banner with rounded corners. (will show exact shape of banner)
2. Remove the “URL” section.
3. Rename the “TEXT” section to “TITLE”
4. Remove the “Enter Text” box as this info is pulled from DB.
5. Remove the “round” checkbox option. (as the corners will always be round).
6. Rename the “THEMES” section to “ELEMENTS”
7. Remove the code section at bottom of page.
8. Change text of “Get BANNER code” to read “Save Changes”. On click, changes are saved to a MySQL database…the user is then sent to an admin specified URL.
1. This will be used for the headers on my blog network. It will allow my blog users to customize the look and feel of their blog header.
2. When the flash editor is called by a user (from their DB file), it should pull in a code (similar to what is displayed in the current code section) from the users db file. User need not see this, but something like this would be stored in a database field:
<embed src="[url removed, login to view] is the title&bg=http://myURL.com/headertool/backgrounds/3.jpg&tc=0&sc=65331&font=http://myURL.com/headertool/fonts/plainn_lib5.swf&tr=0&ts=60&tx=15&ty=3&glitter=1&rounded=1&bevel=0&sepia=0&theme=http://myURL.com/headertool/elements/boom3.swf&theme_al=100" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="671" height="70" name="show" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="always" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"/>
3. After changes are made by the user, changes are saved to the MySQL database…the user is then sent to an admin specified URL. (This will probably be their main user area page).
1. Fonts, backgrounds, and elements should be easily added/removed by admin by placing and removing them from their respective directories, or via a general config script.
2. Flash editor should be approximately 700 pixels in width.
3. If needed, supplemental scripting files such as PHP or Perl may be used to get and/or post data from MySQL DB.
4. Project should include at lease 10 backgrounds, fonts, and elements. (ones from above demo are OK).
5. Programmer has the discretion to suggest a better way to edit and implement the flash editor (and header file) to accommodate what we are looking to have done (perhaps XML). Remember, this will be used for many users.
6. Would like to have this done as soon as possible.
