I'm having problems linking flash buttons in a Frames page I'm building.
This is the main page.
http://www.simantixonline.com/main.html

I'm not sure how to get the flash buttons to link to pages. Please help.

when giving the URL for the button put [target="] without the []s, notice only one " mark cuz flash will automatically add the other

and inside target=" you have to put the name of the frame
for example you would put:
[http://www.yoursite.com/yourpage.html target="frame2]
without the []s in the link box for the button

i've done this before and it workt so any other questions or problems feel free to ask

I tried what you said but it seems to link the page to the menu frame, not the main frame.

Is there a way I can just make the object a link?

Give your frames names using the name atttribute; the name of the desired frame is your link target.

I don't know if you can put the entire flash object in a link; it is defined as inline content, so it's okay according to the DTD.
I would strongly advice anyway to only feature the animation on mouseover or something; those constantly flashing buttons are an annoyance at best after the first 3 seconds of admiration, and could be hazardous to those susceptible to flashing effects.

if you are using the getURL for your actionscript on your buttons, then just do as ronald said give your frame a name and set the target of the actionscript to the frame name
