Flash Topic Icon

Is there a way to make the topic icon a flash file?

Currently, it wont let you write much for the location of the image file...and it doesnt seem to allow html of any kind.

Any ideas? is there an 'allow html' switch in the config?

i'm trying to get more flash integrated with the site...for aesthetic appeal.

I have no idea how to hack the topic image to be flash but here is a way to add your own, I haven't tried it but you can just add flash code to your storytext.thtml and name the flash files the same as the {story_topic_id} variable. For example if you have a topic called "General" then you could have {story_topic_id}.swf as the name for your flash, then it would look for General.swf.

I just woke up so if it doesn't make sense I can explain it better after some coffee.
Yes I am mental.
