Building new design for website and wanted to utilize flash animation. I thought that by switching to the newer designs there were more options. The options look the same as the what the site offered six years ago. Maybe I need to get to Sitebuilder Plus. I thought that was where I was directed to.

Hi Gwendolyn, sadly if you are looking to create a new website it has to be with websitebuilder but you can still edit older websites in the original builder

Gwendolyn0309, you do not want to use Flash. The new builder has some animation effects available, but you want to first be careful about making the site too busy with moving things. It might look great the first time people visit, but over time it can become tiresome to the visitor. Some is ok if you feel it contributes, but Flash is seemingly on the way out. Support is dwindling for Flash and Google actually reduces your ranking a bit for using it.What is the purpose of the Flash you wanted to use? There may be a better way to do it.
