Folks,
The slideshow is great and easy to set up. However, the drop down menu I built in DW drops down behind the image. I changed the menu position to go up, but my client doesn't like that. How can I get the menu to drop down in front of the slideshow? http://cedarcreekfences.com
Thanks for any help.

I think you can use CSS tips to do that.

When you say CSS tips, do you mean the forum or is there a specific list of tips that would address this issue?

It seems the only issue is with Firefox. It works fine in IE.
Any help would be appreciated.

i have something similar set up on http://www.dynamicinteractions.com/
i used these two scripts (found here)
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/anylinkcss.htm
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/swissarmy/index.htm

both scripts have been modified a bit

most of the changed i did to anylink were just to make it display how i wanted
the changed i made to swissarmy were to remove the buttons that allow users to control it

it's pretty easy, and i have used anylink on MANY web sites without swiss army, but i had the same problem when i tried to do a flash slideshow which is why i used swissarmy
swissarmy is JUST like the one you currently use, but it's a bit more customizable and requires less javascript to be in the actual page (everything i do is through .js files so i dont have to have the javascript in the actual pages)




i strongly recommend you use these two scripts (they are the best)
the reason your scripts are not displaying correctly is because of a css attribute called z-index (or layering) which does not seem to be configurable with the menu script you use

Your use of tables does not allow using z-Index to meet your requirement

change your layout so the menu is in a separate table from the cslide show and give the menu a higher z-Index than the slide show.

Better still, use css for thje layout not tables
