On March 22 (PST) we will be performing site maintenance on the database to improve performance, which requires taking down the website for a short period of time. The work is being done between 9pm-12am PST (3 hours), but we will only have a maximum of 1 hour of down time. We do not know exactly when within the 3 hours window we will be down. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Q: I followed all the steps and suggestions in the "Adding a progress bar" video, but when I add the progress bar to my web site, I can’t remove it once the index.swf file loads up. The progress bar remains on the homepage and the rest of the pages. How do I make it disappear once the site loads?

A: To make it disappear, just make sure the progress bar is only in frame 1. If it’s on its own layer, then right-click on the 2nd frame in that same layer and select "Insert Blank Keyframe." That will make it disappear.

Q: Despite following the steps in the "Adding a progress bar" video, I cannot figure out how to keep the progress bar from appearing on a movie that has finished loading. How can I make the progress bar disappear?

A: Just add the red line below to the preloader.fla file. This will make the progress bar invisible: 

"function contentLoaded(evt:Event):void { //Optionally change to a clip holder and set progressbar visibility. addChild(contentLoader); progressbar.visible = false; }"
