    guestbook problem

    Im using the flash db guestbook that works great if loaded by itself, but if I load it into another MC it doesnt work......

    You can see it working here..
    http://www.iamaugust.com/guestbook/guest.html

    Here it is loaded into another MC:
    http://www.iamaugust.com/index2.html --->guestbook


    Im calling the movie clip like this.....
    The Guestbook button is calling an empty movie clip on the root with this:
    on (release) {
    _ _ tellTarget ("_root.guestbook") {
    _ _ _ _ gotoAndPlay("start");
    _ _ }
    }

    The empty MC is then calling the actual swf..
    loadMovieNum("merch.swf", 1);

    I tried to change all the references of _root in the guestbook to _parent but still nada.

    Any ideas....does this make sense??

    Why a empty mc, when you are loading into a _level?

    External files loaded into a _level usually works just fine, its when loading into movieclip targets you get problems with _root.

    _parent means one timeline up.

    thanks

    that does make sense...I'll tweak it now and see if it solves it.


    Cheers!

    nada

    Changed all the buttons to directly call the movie with a level but it still doesn't work....Anyone have any ideas? Could I send you the source files to take a peek.

    THANKS!
