Default Linking code

I have made a very simple banner ad for a site. I think I have made it clickable, ie i have put a transparent button over the entire scene and inserted the action "go to web page" on it. this seems to work on my flash player on my pc.

However the site admin want me to include this code to it,

getURL(_root.clickTAG, "_blank");

Is this a code to link to a web page or is this for tracking the link (should this be used in place of the go to web page action I used?). I dont know how or where to put this code either.

I know this is probably a very basic question but I have more of a print and video background and I am trying to help someone out with this one.

Any help would be great.

_root.clickTAG is a variable that is defined in the 'root' of the flash movie. If your flash movie is loaded into another flash movie, the other movie will be the root.

A variable can be used to store a URL, for example:


So, yes, it seems that the code your admin gave you is a link to a website.
