Hey folks

I am currently working on a project which involves a flash video gallery that I am going to purchase.

Been working for hours now for the past two days trying to figure out how to add a new button on the home page and make it link to my video gallery. This is an existing flash website.

Actually I am having two problems but the first one involves the above.

I added a new frame on frame 120 next to the contact which is on frame 110 and changed the instance name to videos, the name of my new button. I check the as and it seem to be formatted correctly as

on (release) {

//Movieclip GotoAndStop Behavior
this.gotoAndStop("videos");
//End Behavior

}

whereas the contact button is showing

on (release) {

//Movieclip GotoAndStop Behavior
this.gotoAndStop("contact");
//End Behavior

}

Videos is linking to the contact page instead of the video page. I checked everywhere I know to check but cannot find where the problem is. I am using Flash CS4 if that matters.

I do have an existing videos.swf movie btw in the same folder where the main .swf is located but when I click on videos button it keeps showing the contact page.

Any help appreciated folks.

This can be any number of places, even in an external file is it's set up that way. Search the project for "getURL(".

Actually I had copied all the files to a new folder and since then it stopped working so I see what you mean. Clumsy me.

Everything is working now and I was able to add the new button and new page with lots of headaches.

I have yet to finish this project since I will be purchasing a video gallery but I think I have a pretty good or should I say ok concept of how this works.

Any problems I will post back.

Thanks so very much for help. I really do appreciate it.
