Editing of Template Monster's 21471

I am trying to edit this template but I am having trouble in Flash.

The template uses 3 "buttons" in the last flash element that I just cannot find anywhere in the timeline or the actions. So I cannot add links (as it is supposed) to these buttons.

Here is the template: http://www.templatemonster.com/website-templates/21471.html

And I am reffering to the last 3 "Click for more buttons".

Does anyone own this template and has edited it successfully? Or does anyone has any idea where these are supposed to be?

Thanks

PS. I do not know if it is legal to upload the source file for this. Maybe it is ok to upload just this part? It is only the part under the rotating image, not the whole website, not even the whole Flash source code.

EDIT: Ok, I found it in the library but it is only one, not three. I can put a link to that but it is the same for all three buttons in the flash movie. How do I make this 3 separate links?

Duplicate that Button symbol in Library two times, so you'll have 3 buttons of that kind.

Now, in you FLA, where these buttons are placed, Replace the 2nd and third button with the ones newly created.

So, now you can apply separate actions for all three.

The problem is that I cannot find the button (actually its not a button, its a movie clip) in the scene.....

I tried attaching the fla in a zip file but it is rejected. Maybe you could give me an email to send it?

Thanks

I'm not sure if sharing our personal email address is allowed.

We should ask EE to allow FLA as well, because yesterday, I had to send in FLA to someone and it was a problem that time.

Please change the .fla extension to .txt and then upload it here.

Ok, didn't know about the email issue...

I uploaded it as a txt file, change it to .fla and it should be ok.

Thanks again...

Eureka!!!
I've found it.

From the Library, open your MC titled "item".

There's a layer "Layer 1" [hidden]. That contains the invisible button.
Un-hide it.

Click that greenish button symbol to see the actions for it in "Actions" panels.
I know you have already gone to this stage.

You'll see the following code in your Actions pane:

on (rollOver) {
      gotoAndPlay("s1");
}
on (rollOut, releaseOutside) {;
       gotoAndPlay("s2");
}

Now, you have to add some more code, as follows in the end of this post.
[Simply paste it all and replace the existing one, and then change the URLs]

I have used 3 different URLs for these three buttons to make it clear.

:-)
on (rollOver) {
	gotoAndPlay("s1");
}
on (rollOut, releaseOutside) {;
        gotoAndPlay("s2");
}
on (release) {
if (nm == 1) {
	getURL("http://www.google.com");
}
if (nm == 2) {
	getURL("http://www.yahoo.com");
}
if (nm == 3) {
	getURL("http://www.msn.com");
}
}

Open in new window

In case you want to edit any of the Heading text or image icon of any of these 3 buttons, you have to follow these steps, as I'm listing down for changing Image icon.

Open "item" MC.
From your canvas, click the image icon symbol to open it.
You'll see that it contains 3 frames, each having a different image.
Frame 1 for First button and so on, so simply change the specific item from specific frame.

Follow the similar procedure for changing text in these buttons.

knonie thank you VERY MUCH, this worked perfectly!!!

I created the links and tested that they work, all is ok. I will also try the second thing you suggest (about the images and text) tomorrow.

Thank you very much! :)
