    Default Updating A Flash Website

    I have been building more and more websites using Flash, am wondering is there a way to build them so that the client can easily update text used in the Flash Website? And even images too is this possible? I guess like a simple CMS or something...

    hmmmmmm i think the number of free flash CMS packages are very less though you can find some of them claiming that flash cms but in nature they are not.

    Anyway let wait for some others replies too.

    Ok great thanks for that! I was thinking of an easy way would be just to load text files ecternally? And the user would update them... Would that work?

    The easiest way would be to build your Flash site using XML pages to read to/from the Flash files. You can then update the XML with new text or photo links, and send that XML file to your clients. They can upload the new files, overwriting the old and pretty much be done with it.

    echo 
    $result

    Yup. There are many. Googling "XML in Flash" will bring a ton of results.
