View Full Version : Problem with flyout menu and slide show

12-01-2008, 01:33 PM
1) Ultimate Fade-in slide show (v1.51)

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm

3) Describe problem: It appears here: http://www.stjohns-dc.org/article.php?id=69

The problem is that the photo gallery appears on top of the flyout menu on the left. I tried changing the z-index of the menu, but it didn't work.

Any help will be much appreciated!

There is quite a bit of code to go through and I'm sure it's easier for you so I recommend that you check the z-index of the menu and the slide show, but also of all the containers they are in. What is important is the parent containers (i.e. the outermost containers).

The slideshow uses z-index for all of the images, so I changed the z-index of the menu container to 100000. That didn't work either.

Have you done that for the sub-menus as well? For example this one:

<div style="overflow: hidden; position: absolute; visibility: inherit; cursor: pointer; color: rgb(0, 28, 74); font-family: arial,helvetica; font-size: 9pt; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; background-color: rgb(206, 211, 231); text-align: left; width: 153px; height: 20px; padding-left: 12px; padding-top: 0px; left: 1px; top: 22px; z-index: 100;">Sacraments</div>

The menus are generated--see the snippet of javascript at the bottom of this message. There is a variable, MenuPos, that controls the positioning of the menu. I put the z-index value in the MenuPos class in the <style> tag in the header. I've also tried putting it in the div tag around the menu, but that didn't work either.

For some reason, it works fairly well in IE6--it's Firefox and Safari that cut off the menus.

var TargetLoc="MenuPos"; // span id for relative positioning
