I am building a website with a flash home page and the rest is html. My problem is that with the following script, I can't get it to open the new page...is there something I am doing wrong? The script is associated to the button, I don't get any syntax errors, so I am a bit confusED. Anythoughts?

on (press) {
getURL("http://www.blahmurray.com.au/faq.html", "_self");

you need to change the "_self" to "_blank"

That should do it.

changing _self to _blank just determines what page it will open up in, it shouldn't matter which one. The problem is that it is not communicating with my browser....any thoughts on that?

And I did try _blank and it didn't work out.....no communcation for some reason between the two.,

I'm not sure why it's not working, but there's nothing wrong with that code.

You don't even need the _self and it'll work.

Sorry, I missunderstood the question!

The flash works fine as you have it. I just set it up on a test button and off it goes.

Have you tried a different action to see if the button is working at all?

make sure the actions are being applied to a button not a movie clip, that should work defenitly if not try this code:

"button_name.onRelease = function() {

with out the quotes "", put it in the button. If it still doesn't work then your server probably doesnt support flash.

Flash is client side, not server side.
