This is probably a really simple question but i seem to be having a problem!..

Im trying to create a full flash site with a navigation bar. I am putting each page in a new scene and then getting the buttons to go to each scene. When I put an action on a button:

on (release) {
gotoAndPlay(“about”, 1);

it should go to the about scene but instead refreshes the current scene…any ideas??

Im unsure what ‘type’ does i.e. expression, frame number etc etc. mine is set to expression.

First of all, use external swf’s instead of scenes. They are way better to handle. When you’ve done that, feel free to ask more :slight_smile:

right ok thanks,

you mean by linking them with html?

I am trying to get a smooth running site that doesnt change the html page. one of the reasons for this is that i want to put music throughout the site.


Using external SWF doesn’t reload the page, it just loads another SWF into the host. Use loadMovie to load them into an empty movieclip on the host swf.
