View Full Version : "AnyLink Drop Down Menu" script's submenus blocked by flash applet

1) Script Title: AnyLink Drop Down Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm

3) Describe problem: We are using this script for drop down menus. We use server side includes as follows:

<html>
<body>
<table>
<tr>
<td <!--#include file="youth_header2.shtml"-->
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><!--#include file="youth_nav2.html"-->
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
<!--#include file="youth_mission_flash.html"-->
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

The problem is that the third include file's flash applet is overlaying/blocking the submenus in the second include--the youth_nav2.html--where the "Anylink Dropdown Menu" code is.

Can anyone suggest a different approach? We would like to keep this structure if at all possible.

thanks

Try modifying the code that embeds the flash file to include:
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
