Making An Entry

In the frame actions on the first frame of the flashjournal.fla you will see some variables for the months like in the picture below.

You catalog a new entry into the journal by entering the "day, name you want to call it, and the url of the swf" in the right month variable.


Lets say you made a new flash file called "gopackers.swf" that you want to enter into your journal and today is April 3rd. You also want people to see the entry as "PACKERS ROCK".

The Apr variable above currently looks like this:

Apr = "APRIL";

After you enter your data it will look like this:

Apr = "APRIL,3,PACKERS ROCK,gopackers.swf";

Making more entries follows the same pattern. Just enter another day, name, and the swf's url separated by commas. If your "gopackers.swf" file is located inside a folder called "nfl" rather than in the same folder as your flashjournal, you would put "nfl/gopackers.swf" in the last entry.

Now you know how to add entries, but nothing will load yet. You will end up with something like you seen on the first page of this tutorial. The journal will have the links in it for your files but won't be showing anything when they are clicked. On to the next part.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
