    Basic Flash Question.

    I've got a button that I want, when pushed, to go to another webpage. I've made the text into a Button and then used the getURL action when the button is pressed.

    Only thing is when the button is pressed the page doesn't load. I get http://www26.brinkster.com/jrf2k/Int....homestead.com and a big ol' 404 not found error.

    The getURL is: On(press) {getURL ("http://www.buggyness.homestead.com");
    }

    This is probably something simple I am over looking. Any help is appreciated!

    Well it should work. I have no idea why it is stitching the required URL onto the original url.

    What do you have the "target" set up as?

    are you absolutely sure that you have your url written as http://www.buggyness.homestead.com instead of just www.buggyness.homestead.com?

    When you create a button make sure to do this

    Up, Over, Down....Stay with text
    HIT (IMPORTANT) put a square around the text so it knows where to hit.

    Then drag the button onto your main stage and do this
    (Object Actions)

    on (press)
    getURL ("blah.com")
