I am creating a flash menu with this tutorial:

I really like it, but when I get to the second button, it doesn't work as you can see in my fla:

I need 5 buttons on the horizontal menu.

Thanks!

both instances on the main timeline are named "button" when they need to have different instance names.

leave the home one as is.

change the bio button instance name to "button1"
and in the code for the bio button, change that to:

on (rollOver){
_root.button1.gotoAndPlay(2);
}
on (rollOut){
_root.button1.gotoAndPlay(11);
}

on (release) {
getURL("");
}

that will do it.

then name subsequent button instance names "button2", "button3", etc... or whatever naming pattern suites you.

FYI:
in the code i gave you above, put your url back in, i removed it when i was testing.
