  1. I keep getting a syntax error when I try to add a link to my button. The error says:

    ERROR: Scene 1, Layer1, Frame 1, Instance of ‘Symbol 2’, Line 3: Syntax error.
    getURL(

    Symbol 2 is the actual button itself. I did exactly what you said to do…any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

  2. Dear Cyndi,

    Did you copy the following ActionScript to your project from this blog?

    on(release)
    {
    getURL(“http://www.sothink.com”);
    }

    I suggest you not to do so. Please new a Quicker project, and repeat to do the above step1 and 2 again, and in the step3, please write down the above ActionScript manually in the Action panel.

    Just try again, you will find this time is OK 🙂

  3. I did exactly as you said, only not on a rectangle but on an image I imported and converted to a button, and it doesn’t work.

    When I preview the file, nothing happens when I press it (though it does show the “hand” icon as if it’s linkable).

    What could be the problem?

  4. I definitely love reading your insight and learning from your blogsite. Thank you for the interesting and informative article. – Diego
