    This is wonderful! Can somebody tell me how to create links for local pages? I'm stuck and I'm not sure what to do.

    Thanks!

    Your button can also be of the movie clip type, but whichever you choose after converting to symbol (in this case mc) give it an instance name and assign the getURL something like this in actions layer, maintimeline:
    Code:
    home_btn.onRelease = function(){
    	getURL("index.html");
    }
    or using frame labels:
    Code:
    jump_3.onRelease = function()
    	{
    	stopAllSounds();
    	gotoAndStop("page 3");
    	}
    Good luck,
    EfV
