I am currently studying Total Training for Flash 8 pro. Something that I am not grasping - Does one publish from flash straight to one's web host (Lunar Pages)or does one take the published flash web page to Golive then to ones website host?
I know this a stupid question but one starts off stupid and gets smarter as one gets all the kind help found on COW.
I always publish to my hard drive first. Mainly because I usually need to do more to the html file than Flash allows in its publishing settings so I'll open the page in GoLiveCS2, make necessary changes and then upload to the server.
Of course, you'll have to switch the local/network access setting in the Publish Settings if you're loading external content once you're ready for the net, but it's a two second change.
