Flash 8, OS Vista.
I have made a Flash file of thumbnails leading to larger images. I would like to use movie clip buttons to go either forwards or backwards from each of the larger images without returning to the page of thumbnails.
I have  tried using the same method of a button/movie clip that I used on the thumbnails, on one of the  larger images, but the button doesn't cause movement to another frame.  I would be grateful for advice.
The Flash movie file can be downloaded from js291057@hotmail.com for which  the password is newdapper.
Thanks,
jsrw.

the simple fix is to put code directly on the movie clips.
on the frames with the stop on..select the movie and put..

on(release){
      _root.play();
}

on the last clip on frame 23..

on(release){
      _root.gotoAndPlay(2);
}

Thanks for your reply.
Would you be able to be more explicit (sorry to be slow to understand).
Do you mean that the buttons for controlling the movement between larger images should go somewhere other than where I have put the first one I tried (on vw1agoodL)?
Could you tell me which frames with stops on you mean?
Would you be able to give meexamples of a relative paths rather than absolute ones?
If you have time for this, thanks in advance.
