Hi,

I am using this code to open a new window:

on(release){
      getURL('http://www.domain.co.uk/',_blank);
}

In the new window/ site I also have a flash movie which has:

on(release){
      getURL('http://www.domain_two.co.uk/',_blank);
}

but this opens in the same window, and NOT another new window (_blank)

How can I make the buttons ALWAYS open in a new window.

Many many thanks,

Ben.
