i need help to hyperlink a flash intro, the "enter the site" should be hyperlinked, but i converted to button, and added this code:

on (release) {
getURL("www.hpctoronto.com", "_self");
}

but it doesn't work, i tried the code on the rectangle which the words was written, nothing works, but it has the cursor where you were about to click a link, but nothing happens when you click it, detailed help would be appreciated, thanks.

my website is hpctoronto.com, it has the flash intro.

Flash has a great help about this.

M.. Make sure that you chose action script 2.
The destination should has a 'http://' prefix. Though most of us ignore it, remember that it has a weight on web sites.

Add http:// prefix to your destination link. That should solve the problem.

Hi smithy,
that quote code tags should not be used in flash action script.
That tags prevent executing code in this forum.

Your link should be www.hpctoronto.com/home.php
The www.hpctoronto.com is the Flash Intro itself so the link appears to be not working but it actually is.
