    OK so my problem is this. I can't make a simple button symbol linked. I make the button, just a simple rectangle for example, i convert it to a button symbol, i add the
    getURL("www.whereveriwannago.com") to the actions. But when I test it, it tells me that the error is that it needs to be on the "on handler" or something of that nature. What I want is a simple step by step method to making a button link to a site. I use Flash MX 7.2. I tried w3schools tutorial but it gave me nothing but an error. Someone please help.

    A button isn't anything until you let it know what YOU want it to do. There are several on(buttonEvent) handlers that all have their own special functions. Some examples are on(down); on(release); on(MouseOver); on(MouseOut); on(RollOver); on(RollOut), etc, etc. For a typical button, you can use release. Your button actions will look like:
    on(release) {
    getURL("www.whatever.com")
    }
