Drop down menus drop BELOW YouTube video

Recommended Posts

davidzatzcom

If you use drop-down menus on the screen that shows the YouTube video, the menus drop below the video, making the whole thing look pretty cheesy. Is there a fix for this? Is there another sub-menu structure, like arranging them across the field instead of down? This might avoid show up under the video.

Hi Dave, Can you upload a live link or screenshot? Also which browser/OS?

Tested on IE8, Firefox 3.5 and Firefox 3.0.15. On two different Windows XP Pro, SP3 machines (at least one of which is updated on everything, not sure about the other box): pagelines-underlay.jpg

Sure I think we have it taken care of in the recent theme versions. Which version of the theme are you on?

I'm using WP2.9 and WHP 2.0.1 and I have this same problem. Also occurs with any flash object in the feature. Also, anyone have any issue with IE? In IE7 there are several display issues that are not present in Firefox or Chrome.

If you add the following to the embed tag for your video: wmode="transparent". Worked for me with a VIMEO video.

`wmode="transparent"` is the only solution on IE unfortunately. (not a theme issue)

Here's what I eventually did: Force embedded YouTube videos to appear below drop-down menus By adding two fixes to the YouTube embed code, this can be fixed. Add a param line setting wmode to opaque:

	<param name="wmode" value="opaque">
	
Then add the following line to the embed tag:
	wmode="opaque"
	
Here's an example in context:
	<object width="610px" height="340px">
	<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/4oAB83Z1ydE&hl=en&fs=1&showinfo=0">
	</param>
	<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
	<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
	<param name="wmode" value="opaque">
	<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/4oAB83Z1ydE&hl=en&fs=1&showinfo=0"
	 type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="opaque"
	 allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="610px" height="340px">
	</embed></object>

@BJ station the only effect not working is the fade? That's strange, can you provide a live link?
