Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I did it with a SWF file and I got the code by searcing the forums. Below is the code I used in the General Information section of my home page. There is one issue I’m working to clear up and I’ll post the solution here when I get it. This works great on Firefox but I need to add something to make it work with Internet Explorer. I’m new to programming so forgive the partial solution; If you use this and get it to work with I.E. as well post the solution here If I haven’t already.
I hope this helps and gets you started, sorry I don’t have the entire thing figured out yet.
