Bottom line: I don't do Flash. Client has a website with both a newer Flash version (on the site root) and the original html version (in its own directory off the root). Currently, the default home page is Flash, with a link on it to "Click here ... for html version." Clicking that takes you to the html version of the site. The client wants the html version to be the default with a "click here ... for Flash version" to get to the Flash site.
What is the best way to do this? It's a windows server so htaccess redirecting won't work. I do not have control panel access to specify the site's default directory.
My thought is to simply replace the Flash homepage with the html index page (after making sure all paths to other html pages from that index.html page are using absolute paths) and leaving all the other html pages in the html directory and the Flash pages on the root, but since many of the pages have the same filenames I can tell that this could be a disaster in intra-site navigation brewing somewhere. Yeah, like, where do I then place the Flash index.html page since I don't do Flash and therefore can't change navigation on the Flash pages?
I would post a link to the site except I don't want this WPW page showing up in Google when he goes in to search for his company (did that before and it was kind of embarrassing when the site owner called me to ask why my technical question was showing up in the #2 position when he searched for his website. Why do people insist on typing the address into Google even when they know the URL instead of just typing it in the browser address bar and going directly to the site?).
