[solved] Rotate plugin - overlaps and hides the 2nd level navigation/menu

Post by Darwin Web Design »

Hello

I am using CMSMS 1.6.7 and Rotate Plugin 0.2.2.

Trouble is that my 2nd level navigation displays UNDERNEATH the Rotate Slideshow and you are unable to view the hovered 2nd level page links.

I have tried applying high z-index css value to the second level menu style sheet - and this works but for firefox only, not IE.

I have tried applying a lower z-index value to the css that holds the slideshow - to bring it behind, but still doesn't help IE.

I have had a similar problem with flash slideshow and found a solution in forums - this was overcome by adding: to the plugin php file, but I believe this would be suitable for flash only?

Is there a similar solution I can apply for the rotate plugin to get the layering correct so it doesn't overlap important areas of the website?

Thanks...

Hello

My site is now live so I finally have a link available:

http://www.absolution.com.au/index.php?page=home

The second nav item has 2 hover/2nd level menu links. In Firefox, they appear correctly above the slideshow. In IE however they hide underneath.

Any help would be greatly appreciated if possible.  Thanks  :)

Hello and thanks for your help...
I have applied these changes to the css, hoping I've done it correctly but the problem is still there.
Do you have any other suggestions I could try? Thanks.
