Thanks Jean!

I got a really great surprise from Jean, a nice new flash logo!

I am playing with it right now and really enjoying doing some learning, I have never worked with flash before.

I am also doing some HTML5 learning. I have discovered that with the HTML5 embed tag I can insert it into my header with one simple line of code and I can resize it with no loss of quality.

Thanks Jean!

It is not just the software that makes me love ocPortal, it is also the people in this great community. :)

If that new logo is the one with the letters dropping in from the top, it looks really nice! I kept replaying it just to watch it.  :thumbs:

I'm hoping to find some time in the near future to go through Jean's site and see what I can learn.

Hey Brian!

Thanks for the POINTS! WOW!:$
I guess that you really liked the Logo.:lol:

I'm glad you like it and that you are able to use it on your site. It really looks great!

Yes indeed, the HTML5 embed tag is much simpler than the object tab.

One last bit of adjustment I suggest you add to the embed code:

Code

bgcolor="#000000"

Because this is missing, the flash movie gets a default white background and produces a white flash every time it is refreshed.

I also appreciated the Facebook review!:cool:

Thanks buddy!

Thanks Jean!

I just added that and it made a big difference how it looks loading.

You earned the points for sure. I don't know what it would cost to buy a logo that nice but not cheap. And what a big difference it made on the look of my site.

I really had some fun working with it and learned a lot..a little frustrating at times though lol When I was trying to do it with the object tag I could not seem to get it working good in both firefox and Chrome.

I had the most trouble with Chrome. The quality was low no matter what I did, even displaying it full size. The only way it would display proper in Chrome was if it was the only thing on the page.

I am adding a new section on my site for what's new, I am going to mention it there too. :)

On a side note does anyone know of a flash editor for Linux? I want to explore a little deeper but having a hard time finding one. I had fun testing out lots of different operating systems but the last time I went to restore Windows my recovery disks wouldn't work any more. So I am dedicated to just Linux (Ubutu) for a while now lol
