Main mc loads external swf, then main swf buttons stop working

I have a portfolio site that I am building. The main site swf has a navigation
menu, and a empty movieclip. Each of the buttons on the menu calls up an
external swf to load into the main empty mc. When you click on 'home', the
'home' swf loads.. when you click on 'about', the 'about swf loads, I can
switch between them, no problem.

This is where my problem comes in... I just created another external swf that
has a gallery in it. The gallery consists of thumbnails and a larger image that
are calling from an XML file. When this swf loads into the main mc, everything
is fine. But then, the buttons on the main swf menu stop working! The buttons
all work going between one another, except when you load the gallery and then
you can't go anywhere else. Help!

let me know what code you need, if any. MUCH APPRECIATED in advance :)

Hmm, it seems everything is working as it should be. The portfolio link opens a new popup window, and the main buttons are still working.

Oh, I know I am sorry about that! I have been fiddling around and updating that
version... I changed it to be a pop-up after I posted the question because in
the forum for where I purchased the main layout template, a lot of people had
written in saying that they could not get any gallery features to work with the
buttons... so its something in the main page code, I don't know what.. but I am
a bit eager to get the site up so I reverted to a pop-up for now...
