    Okay I am a complete flash noob. I am having trouble getting my swf to link to forum sections on my page i am building.

    http://www.thegreatalaskanguide.com/fun/ the map on the main page will have those four sections.

    Tthen i am going to make it zoom in or fade into a new map of each of those towns.

    The town maps will be broken down into districts and linked to forums for each section of town.

    SO i have been looking at tutorials all night on button linking in Flash cs3, but i am not doing something right.

    If you have a quality tutorial or can help me out my aim is: Alaskanfootprints

    So wait, you're asking how to link to the forums or how to make it zoom in?

    gracias amigo! I think i will just use an image fade for the rest of the map, with backlinks to the main map.

    Nevermind... that tutorial doesn;t work with flash CS3, the actions is completely different... back to the tutorial hunting for me.

    scratch that.. it works if i downgrade the action script to 2.0 instead of 3.0

    Alright, i have a new problem.. I made the buttons and the external links work.. but now when my file loads you should be able to click on Homer on the map and it takes you to scene 2 of the swf. the code for my action script on the homer button is:

    But, the problem is the movie loops between both scenes without clicking the button and it doesn't stop looping... I know it has to be something small i missed. anyone know?

    Flash movie can be viewed at http://thegreatalaskanguide.com/fun/
