    OK, I am only able to use relative URLS if I have the .swf and the page it is linked to in the exact same folder in the directory of my website. This is unrealistic since I have dozens of web pages and images, I need to keep them grouped in different folders and sub-directories. Will adding the BASE tag to my html help? how does the BASE tag affect GET URL functions on my .swf's? I don't understand this... http://www.macromedia.com/support/fl...ts/tn4157.html

    Question

    Um, doesn't it work if you specify the drive path of the file? ie: if u had a file in a directory lower than the SWF one called folder and in it a file called file, the link might work like:

    GetURL ("folder/file", window="_blank")

    I think it should work.

    I've tried that. I tried going all the way back to first folder ex. mainfolder/secondfolder/thirdfolder/file.htm
    nothing seems to work for me other than dropping the files in the same exact folder.
    Is this a Dreamweaver issue?
