Where would I go and what would I "slash/burn"...I mean "edit"...;)
to have Auto Manager 2.25 accept the image format .png

One thing i did manage was to embed flash from the "edit" homepage page by creating a textfield called "ADD FLASH CONTENT" the user is able to paste the flash tag, in this case it was:
<!-- URL's used in the movie-->
<!-- text used in the movie-->
<!--GOOD VEHICLES DUTCH FORK AUTO SALES GREAT DEALS Lexington, SC SEE US TODAY!!! --><OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="smallbanner.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=scale VALUE=exactfit> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF> <EMBED src="smallbanner.swf" quality=high scale=exactfit bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH=100 HEIGHT=100 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></EMBED>

then on the homepage_index page I added $hfield9$ to a table cell and centered it...now when someone adds the flash tag in the homepage editor ADD FLASH CONTENT box auto manager parses that code and outputs the flash!!!
here is an example the DUTCHFORK AUTO SALES has flash


Maybe we can work flash by letting the IMAGE DESCRIPTION that you have to enter while uploading, parse HTML then upload a 1x1 invisible pixel and enter the flash tag there?

Re: [Joey] Add To Image Formats Accepted

Hi Joey,

Your flash solution sounds pretty good. I'm not sure if adding HTML into the image description field would work. The html would need to be entered one line at a time.

We haven't had many request for flash with Auto Manager so I am really interested to know how that turns out.
