View Full Version : Slight problem with Multi Level Menu

01-29-2010, 09:41 PM
1) Script Title: jQuery Multi Level CSS Menu #2

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/jquery_multi_level_css_menu_2/

3) Describe problem: The sub menus keep showing up behind the flash movie I have installed on a template I'm working on. I can't figure out how to fix this problem.

You can see it at http://www.designbyily.com/api/index.html

Hope someone can help me out.

Thanks. :)

Search through the forums - many people have asked this question.

You can either take a look here. "How to give flash a transparent bg. (http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14201&sliceId=2)."

If not, try adding this to your object tag:

<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

And add this to your embed tag:


As explained in this post here (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14022).

Good luck.

Ok I added the code, but I'm thinking I didn't insert it in the appropriate place. Would you mind just checking to see whether or not I messed up? Thanks.

I'm not sure if I did it correctly, because the sub menu's are still showing up behind the movie (which is a swish, not flash). Would someone be so kind just to look at my code to see if I inserted it correctly?

Thank you.

You must also give the divs containing the listmenus a z-index (i.e. z-index:1) and a position (try 'relative'; if that doesn't work, try 'absolute'; if it still doesn't work, give also a background to the divs).

I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand. I've just started using CSS and not very familiar as I am learning this on my own.

If someone can be a little more specific for someone just learning CSS like myself, I would be so grateful.
