Flash Movie Problems Flash is Interfering with drop down menu Llana1976 msg:3485461 8:42 pm on Oct 23, 2007 (gmt 0) I am working on a new front page for my website. At the top of my page I have a Nava bar with 5 links across it. When you hover over the Nava bar on one of the links a drop down menu will appear. Well here's the problem, I have inserted a flash movie clip in a table below the Nava bar. Now the Nava bar drop down menu works but it is showing up behind the flash movie clip. How do I get it to show up in front of the movie clip. Know one will be able to see the drop down menu because of the flash movie clip.
Does anyone have any advice?

welcome to WebmasterWorld, Llana1976! (thanks for delurking)
this is probably the wmode transparency bug.

Not sure if this will work but....if you are using CSS you can set the z-index: value to have one appear over the other.

if you do a search on "wmode transparency bug" i'm sure you will find plenty of references to the fact that this does not work properly.

Verify the syntax of the <embed> tag. <embed ...> is for mozilla and <param ...> are for IE.
