    i just tried following the steps, but I am stuck on step number 5. I do not see the Reading Settings as described in the above image. Is it possible I am using a newer version of wordpress and the options are located elsewhere?

    I cant figure out how to get my flash file to show up. Where is it actually linking to the video? I put the code and did everything that was asked and get only a white screen now? Im thinking the file needs to be saved somewhere? Cna you help me?

    I’ve tried this, but the Flash intro shows as a post, not as the main/landing page. What am I doing wrong?
