Hi all,

I downloaded a fantastic menu script from here. I must say its fantastic. Thank you Dynamic guys.

I have a problem though.

The menu works great and all the submenu's have appeared on top of all that I have placed under them, ie: text or images.

BUT i have just placed a flash slideshow I made and the submenus are now not visible, they are hiding under the flash file.

I have tried the Z-index but not worked so far.

Can anyone help please.

Geoffb:)

Depends on which script, how you have embeded Flash, and a few other factors.

Post links to your problem pages, and to the scripts you have used, etc, so we can better help you out.

Congrats. I always tend to over look the simple things myself and spend hours wondering why something wont work. Usually a break from the computer and a good nap helps, :D

Just downloaded the smoothmenu- great script. However, I have several pages where there is a flash item below the drop down ddsmoothmenu, such as here: http://www.rescott.com/vbooks.php .Please Help!

When you use the drop down, the flash hides the submenu. I changed wmode in the flash to transparent, but the problem still occurs.

Here's the flash script I used which pulls an XML file for data:
