    Remove Flash Comment Box From on Top of Pictures

    Hey guys! I'm new to this site. I'm also very new to programming. I'm not a programmer by any means, but pretty profficient with a computer, so I can find my way around what I'm told. I also have access to my domain control panel, so I can edit the website.

    Here's my story -
    I bought a WordPress theme template. I currently need help with 2 things.

    1 - When the website opens, I have 5 images that basically slide from right to left. Starts at image one, next image two, etc. I know where those images are located, and have been able to edit them. The problem is that there is also a flash text field on TOP of each image. I don't want it there at all. I only want the pictures. I have found where the text file is, within the flash directory, but if I delete it, the website won't load. I assume there is another file telling this "tfile_main.xml" to load as well.

    Simply put, how do I make it so that I ONLY see the pictures sliding by, and eliminate the text box?

    2 - The website loads very slow initially, until cached. The problem is that the majority of viewers will most likely be first time viewers, so how can I increase the load time?

    Speed of the website can be conquered later. For now, my main priority is eliminating the text box.

    Here is the website:


    Thanks in advance for any help!

    hi there,

    do you have access to the flash file itself? (the .fla source file). Getting in there would be the best way to eliminate the text field. That or get a decompiler like SoThink and decompile the .swf, it's not really that hard. You have to get into the .swf file and remove the text field. I don't think there is any other way around it if you want to be able to use the flash component
