I would like to enable the back browser button to go back in this gallery that I have in flash

the users are requesting that when they view pictures in the gallery, if they want to go back to the list of galleries in the slideshow pro component their tendency is to hit the back button. This takes them to the previous html page rather than to the gallery as they expect.

i realize this is a common flash problem, but I know there are fixes for this.

What you're looking for is deeplinking. The process is well-documented. I've provided some links below.

I highly recommend looking at swfObject to help you out with this one, it's tried tested and true and is very easy to implement.

Even Adobe has a good tutorial on it:

Hope this helps!

Thanks. I got way confused, looking at these links, but I'm going in for another try, as my client is insisting.
