ADX Menu Problems

 2:50 pm on May 20, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hello everyone,

I've got an issue with a drop down menu appearing behind a flash movie on the homepage (every browser) and the same menu appearing behind the content on every page (IE only).

The menu usually responds to the z-index property but i can't seem to influence this behavior at all on this website.

Can anyone have a look at the page for me? I can send you a link to the site under development.

Thank you advance for your help!

I have fixed the menu from appearing behind all content in IE by removing 'position:relative' from the container holding the menu.

I have also fixed the menu from appearing behind the flash in every browser except IE by adding wmode="transparent" to the <embed> tag for the flash.

The only remaining problem is with IE not listening to transparent property of the embed tag... Any ideas?

Final Update:

The script that was placing the flash into my page had a separate case for IE browsers using the newer <object> and <param> tags - i added a <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> and IE now responds like the other browsers letting the menu overlap the flash.
