This post had some easy to follow instructions to make a flash banner clickable, but it's not quite working for me. Here is where my flash banner is. Under the google earth thing is a small flash ad. When I mouse over, the cursor turns to pointer like it knows it's a link, but clicking does nothing. I've been fooling with this for hours and I'm about to go crazy. My actionscript is this: on(press){getURL("http://realgreenlawn.com","_blank");}

You need to place the code:
on(press){getURL("http://realgreenlawn.com","_blank");}
on the instance and not on timeline.

Kindly check with this.

Select the button, press F9 and then place the code.

Warm Regards

Kindly share your fla.

Also suggesting to try this instead:

on(press){
    getURL("http://www.realgreenlawn.com","_blank");
}

I do. We all know how crazy Flash can be. Of course, anyone of us would prefer to have the fla and take a quick look.
