Setting up the Journal
To get the journal to work you need to have the swf files load into your movie.
Make a new flash file and use "Insert, Movieclip" to create a blank movieclip. Now drag two instances of the blank movieclip on to the stage. Call one movieclip "journal" using the Instance Tab and use the Info Tab to line it up at "0,0" on the stage. Call the other movieclip "loadhere" and use the Info Tab to put it at "0,110". In the frame actions of the first frame of the root movie put this code:
loadMovie ("flashjournal.swf", "_root.journal");
Now export a swf of this file and put it in the same folder as your flashjournal.swf.
Whats going on?
The swf from the file you created will load the flashjournal into the top and all the files for your flash journal will load into the movieclip below it as they are clicked.
If you don't quite get it, an example fla is included that has the above steps already done.
Just make your entries into the variables and include the swf files for your entries.
