I would think that should work, but I’m not sure.
First, I just want to add my vote to an FAQ tab. I would like to add one suggestion that each FAQ have an anchor that can be linked to. That way, you can link users directly to the answer.
I realize this was posted in the General Discussion forum, but isn’t the “Site Suggestions & Feedback” meant for these types of comments?
For my own knowledge, how much does the FlashDen staff monitor the ideas brought up in the forum. Are we wasting our time posting in the “Site Suggestions & Feedback” section of the forum? Should we just send everything to Support?
It would be nice if FlashDen had a upload progress bar (it could easily be built with flash).
I like the idea. What about on a separate tab?
My suggestion isn’t for product pages. I want something like that for the forums. A single feed that tracks the forum threads I want to stay updated on.
The product comments rss works great. The forum experience is lacking.
Most forums have a subscription option that allows you to turn on and off whether you receive email for a thread – it is a very valuable feature. It’s a major pain to manually track each thread.
I’m assuming FlashDen doesn’t want to set up an email notification system for various reasons. One suggestion that I have been wanting to make for a while would be to have a forum subscription RSS feed for each user.
Each thread would have a checkbox you could select. All the threads you have selected would get added to the RSS feed. Each new post to any of the threads you have subscribed to will show up in that single RSS feed.
If you want to stop tracking a thread, unsubscribe from it and it will no longer appear in your RSS feed.
The benefits of this system is that it gets around all of the issues with email and it allows users to only have to subscribe to one RSS feed to keep track of all the threads they want to subscribe to.
I don’t think this would be difficult for FlashDen to setup and it would bring a lot of value to the forums. Thoughts?
One thing to keep in mind (as David mentions in the comments of the first link) is that if you completely remove the context menu, users no longer have access to Flash’s privacy settings. It is possible to alter the context menu with actionscript and only leave the “About Flash Player” and “Settings…”. If you need some ActionScript examples, just let us know.
Edit: Sorry, I see that you already knew this. I don’t think it is possible to remove it from a standalone player.
I thought I would throw in one more way to do it (slightly altering phantasmagoria’s version using an array):
photos = ['photos/photo1.png', 'photos/photo2.png', 'photos/photo3.png']; this.myRandomPhoto.loadMovie(photos[random(photos.length)]);
