Help me get my Slideshow interface synching together...Please

I am making an XML slideshow for school with thumbnails and forward/backward buttons.

SO FAR, I HAVE THIS GOING GOOD :: when you click on the thumnbnails a photo loads in a a MovieClip. When you press the forward button it advances in a linear fashion.

The problem is that the forward/backward buttons don’t keep in time with the thumbnails buttons (i.e. If I clicked on thumbnail #14 and then I click the forward button, it doesn’t go to thumbnail #15 but to #2).

Here is what I got so far :

Also the loop function doesn’t work yet, but i guess that’ll be anther day…:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
