  • website problem.. js dropdown displays under embedded swf?

    Hi guys,
    I'm building a website for a local tattoo studio (it's currently in my testing space online, take a look, and have discovered this issue:

    The website has a js dropdown menu for the artists' individual pages. this works fine in all the other pages (so I'm assuming the menu itself is not at fault), but in the artists' pages-and only on a pc!!- it seems to hide behind the .swf clip of the artists' work... the interesting part is that it works perfectly on my mac in the same browsers (firefox, safari)...

    By the way, the z-index for this div is set to 3, while the nav div's z-index is 500...

    If anyone has encountered this issue before or can help figure out how to fix this, I'll be forever thankful!

    PS- please ignore any other issues you may encounter... the website is not even nearly ready yet!

    Show me something interesting. I won't steal it, just learn from it and draw my own conclusions.

    I have tested on Mac and like you say, No problem! (Naturally...) I'm sure there is a fix for this as I have encountered the same problem before but am unable to find out how I resolved this issue, If I remember I will get back to you!

      i think you can fix it by adding wmode="opaque" or something.

        I've been trying it but it doesn't seem to work for me....

        how should I be doing this?

        I figured it out! actually, there was a stupid script generated by DW which stopped the wmode from working. as soon as I went back to basics with the code (removing any js I couldn't understand) and added <param name="wmode"value="opaque"> and wmode="opaque" inside the object tag, it started working

        Thanks for steering me in the right direction!!

        BTW, there's a resource online for this issue:
        This is an explanation-
        This is an example-

            Hi there! I've been attending OCAD for two years now after attending another college. I'm told it's a much different atmosphere than colleges because it's less focused on "application" and more...

            Adobe InDesign and a JPG Size
            Hi again,
            For some reason, the jpg that is 1920 px by 680 px does not fit into the Adobe InDesign 1920px by 680px document. When I place the jpg into INDesign it shows up much smaller. I know this...

            Absolutely. There is nothing worse than explaining the color gamut to clients who have fallen in love with the vibrant RGB colors that turn to mud in CMYK. Nothing.

            There are many wacom tablet owners right now that are not working with upgrades. Google and see if yours is one that doesn't have an update. I'm on mac, and I have heard that the Bamboo will not work...

            I thought Adobe bought out the forum to silence all the badmouthing of their brand I've been doing lately.
