So I have an account on Tokio Hotel Fiction.
Long story short, I have a bunch of fics and I want to be able to organize them.
There's a way to do this with Flash that's already been done on the main admins' profiles.
They said that a friend made it for them and they don't know how it's done.
It looks like this (http://fiction.tokiohotelfiction.com/viewuser.php?uid=59).
Just go down to the middle of the page and you'll see this big blue box which loads up the stories.
Does anyone know how to make something similar to that, but not quite the same?

If you do, that would be awesome.
Because I have no clue how to work Flash/HTML.
:3

Oh, and also it's not just the titles.
If you move your mouse over each title, it shows the summary, picture, etc.
So yeah, don't forget about that :O

That's completely Flash-based (no HTML involved except to tell the webpage where to grab it from)... but I don't know anything about programming in Flash, unfortunately.

I don't know any Flash stuff, either D:
Does that mean I'll just have to get someone to do it for me?
Or should I try and learn it on my own?
Will it take a long time to learn?
And it says I have Flash but I can't find it on my computer -.-;

You can get someone to make it for you if they're experienced with flash. But you can learn it yourself, but it will take sometime to learn.

You actually would need Flash CS4 or a program like it to actually create stuff in Flash. :\ The Flash you have is just the player.

Okay, so say I used the 30-day free trial thing that they offer.
If I made something with it during that period, then would it stay after the trial was done?
Of course, that's assuming I made it myself, right? If someone else made it, then it wouldn't matter if I had it.

It would stay... as long as you finished it. But Flash takes a good while to learn, probably more than 30 days.

Actually, what I meant by "as long as you finished it" was that it wouldn't function properly if it wasn't finished, though you could get someone to finish it for you.

But still, I don't know how much Flash learning you can cram into 30 days.

Of course I could always learn Flash before I signed up for the free trial...
And then when I got it, I could start right away xD
But I'm thinking I'd probably need more hands-on experience than that d:
Oh well. I guess that means I'm off to find someone to do it for me -.-;
