DHTML Menu Won't Show over Web Flash...

My website www.gottalovewood.com has a DHTML menu I created out of CoffeeCup's HTML editor. I've added several more options to the menu and now the menu's dropdown is long enough that it gets covered up by the text.

I guess ultimately, I added a nice script text using the Flash Website Font program...and have that as my text at the top, just under the menu. When the menu drops down, it hides behind this font...what can I change. My site sucks right now. I have a ticket, but hoping someone can update and let me know if I can use BOTH the Flash Font and this DHTML menu.

Some of my code (note I have the Font Flash AND the DHTML menu in a server-side include):

<link rel="stylesheet" href="all.css" type="text/css" media="all" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="sIFR-screen.css" type="text/css" media="screen" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="sIFR-print.css" type="text/css" media="print" />
<script src="sifr.js/+sfgRmluamFuX1R5cGU9amF2YV9zY3JpcHQmRmluamFuX0xhbmc9dGV4dC9qYXZhc2NyaXB0+" type="text/javascript"></script>

</head><body bgcolor="#000000" link="#33cc80" vlink="#000000">

<script type='text/javascript'>

function Go(){return}

Mmmm... usualy, with normal flash, this could have been easily fixed with the following lines/attributes inserted inside the flash tag:

<object [...] />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
<embed ... wmode="transparent"></embed>

But with Flash Font you should edit somewhere in sifr.js. You should make a backup of this file and replace "',T,'" with "transparent". Maybe it works.

Yes, if you open the font program and open your file, check the transparency option on the right panel and your font file should work.

I recreated your page as much as I could and this is an example for you:

I did use the z-index for the < div >'s but try just checking the transparency option before you change any thing else.

I read the first post, tried that, and IT WORKED!!! Not sure if just clicking the transparent checkbox would work or not. Thanks luciansarbu! I changed the "T" values to "transparent" and I was golden. The site looks great now. Thanks to everyone involved!

The changes you made to your site work in Internet Explorer, but I see no change in Firefox. The sample page that Darce Jean made for you works in both...


Good News! By selecting the Transparent option in Flash Font Builder, the drop down part of the menu appears over the flash font. This topic will be closed. Darce Jean

Stupid me. I am an user of the Font, but only to preview different styles and fonts. Usually I'm working serious stuff directly in the code so... I never noticed that small check box :)
