    Hey, guys I'm new to this forum. I just finished making my site for my little metal work business. Just to let you know this is only my third website ever made. But let me know what you think of the layout and design.

    That's most likely that your opera browser doesn't have new newest flash player installed.

    okay

    but doesn't that limit your browsing experience when you can't view something because you don't have the newest updates.

    Thats not the point. There is no option to skip that page to go directly to your website, if someone can't download an update for whatever reason or just doesn't want to at that time then they will leave your website.
    Just my opinion

    but

    But the site won't work properly if the newest version of flash is installed on the computer. Certain functions at least. And I think that a person would find that more annoying than anything.

    You really didnt have to design this site using only flash. The only thing that you used flash for was the links. and its not even that great.

    Do you propose having an HTML site aswell? Remember, your entire audience dont all have flash...

    I don't know how to make html sites that is the problem. When I first wanted to make my site, I bought a book on flash. Therfore all I really know is how to create a site within the flash contexts.

    I suppose if you really want to keep that then, at least give the user the option to download it and let them know that if they don't have the latest version certain functions may not work.

    Some people don't have administrator access on their computers and won't be able to download the newest flash plug-in. Give your user a choice otherwise you will lose them.
