    We can't help by just looking at your page. We need to see the source files for the menu.

    how do i post the files on this website???

    leonardo34_main.swf
    leonardo34_1.swf
    leonardo34_2.swf
    leonardo34_3.swf
    leonardo34_4.swf
    leonardo34_5.swf

    and of course the "menu.txt" file it needs because when i preview the main file in flash, it says error opening 3 urls on bottom, (one of them i fixed but here are the other two)

    /leonardo34_1.swf
    /menu.txt

    so obviously it needs the menu.txt file so it can load the 5 smaller .swfs, and the text buttons on the menu are also 5 buttons which i made:

    1) homepage
    2) charities
    3) churches
    4) sponsors
    5) about+ contact

    did you mean to actually post the actual flash files on here or just the names? I'm very new at web design

    Post the .fla files here. Meaning load them on your server somewhere and post the url to the .fla file.

    Good luck getting help. The fla file most likely contains the actionscript that parses the text file. Without seeing that we don't know how the menu.txt file is supposed to be setup. I didn't tell you to give me ftp access. I told you to upload your files to your server on your own and just give us the url to the files. How much harm can that do?
