Flash Banner linking
how do i make a whole banner a link?

 9:02 pm on Aug 7, 2002 (gmt 0)

I'm trying to a do a small banner in flash,
and I don't know flash well AT ALL. I am using a copy
of flash 4 and I managed to make the banner, and make it a small file size, but I want to make the whole banner (ie: scene) a link
to a coupon that we are offering. Any easy way to do this??

I am not sure off hand what the best way to do this but I know a way that will work. When you create flash buttons out of text people need to add a shape behind the text with the color either transparent or blending into the background. This lets your users not have to click on a letter but there is a large link area to hover and click.

You can do the same for the movie. Create a new layer on top of the stack. Create a new symbol button on that layer that is the size of the stage or movie area. Then make the alpha effect = 0. Then create an up action go to url. This should get you going. I would not use any other states of the button like down. Just use the default state.

If it is a flash site, then making an object out of the image will, allow a hyperlink to be associated to its structural location. If it is in an wysiwyg, its just the same as any pic.

I think what I used to do (can't be bothered much with flash these days) is similar to Korkus2000. Simply add a new layer without content and make that link to whatever. Can't remember too well how, but if I did it, it must be easy. LOL
Good luck!
