    [RESOLVED] Loading web links from txt file

    I am making a sort of flash news post that posts 5 news posts and goes through them automatically. I would like it so when you clicked on one of the buttons (1,2,3,4,5) it would go to the full article that is posted on the site.

    So on the main actions layer, I did:

    this.createEmptyMovieClip("loader", 0);
    loadVariables("links.txt",loader);

    On button 1 I did:

    on(release)
    {
    getURL(loader.url1, _blank);
    }

    and in the text file I have:

    links.txt
    url1="www.google.com"&url2="www.paypal.com"

    However #1 when I view it on my computer, it tries to go to file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/...........
    When i put it up on a site, it doesn't do anything at all.

    Please help me out here!
    All of the files are here - http://csulb.edu/~adurgavi/Flash/
    thanks

    Code:
    var loader_lv:LoadVars = new LoadVars()
    loader_lv.onLoad = function(){
    button1.onRelease = function(){
    getURL(loader_lv.url1, _blank);
    }
    }
    loader_lv.load("links.txt");
