_root.link Help

I have the following _root.link assigned to the home button

on (rollOver) {
      if (_root.link<>1) {
            this.gotoAndPlay("s1");
      }
}
on (releaseOutside, rollOut) {
      if (_root.link<>1) {
            this.gotoAndPlay("s2");
      }
}
on (release) {
      if (_root.link<>1) {
            _root["item"+_root.link].gotoAndPlay("s2");
            _root.link = 1;
      }
}
on (release) {
      getURL("index.html");
}

When it loads index.html the home button doesn't slide out to let the user know that he's on the home button page.

History: I got this website from templatemonster.com and I needed to change the links around inside the aforementioned code. The home button used to be index-1.html, and it worked correctly.

I used the movie explorer to find another reference in the main timeline - it says the following.

_root["item"+_root.button].gotoAndPlay("s1");
_root.link=_root.button;

The answer I'm looking for will tell me how to be able to change the links correctly so that when that page loads the correct button slides out.
Here is a live example of the problem

This issue is urgent to me.

I can provide the FLA.

If no one answers for this I have a "workaround". index.html will just redirect to index-1.html... I'd rather not be cheezy though.

Ok, I resolved this myself and I hope it helps others that read this post.
when you insert the flash into a page it gives the following code in the flash parameters.

 <param name="movie" value="flash/header.swf?button=2">

Change the button number in the html  to correspond with the flash button/page... Works perfectly now.

click on support up the top.. and post a request..although closing it like that will lose the question and your solution to others in EE.. so maybe request closing and saving it as though asked and answered..

you could maybe also request that there is option like I am suggesting available.. for people to retrieve their points if they solve it themselves.. yet the question goes into the EE database.. thus available to others.

This actually happens quite frequently as people are not just sitting there expecting a magic solution.. but working on the problem themselves.
