CSS MenuWriter & Nivo Slider

Hi.

I'm trying to add the Nivo Slider jQuery image slider to a website that uses CSS MenuWriter for its navigation.

I thought I'd cracked it, upon initial loading of the page, but when the Nivo slider effect occurs, the menu disappears. Any ideas what I'd need to change in the CSS to make sure the menu stays on top, as it were?

Here's an example:
nivo-test.asp

Thanks.

I'm not seeing a problem in Fire Fox or Safari. I'm not seeing the menu dissapear.

Most problems like that, though are solved by editing the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css file.
change:

ul#cssmw {
cursor: default;
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0 0 0 0;
padding: 0 0 0 0;
}



to:

ul#cssmw {
cursor: default;
list-style-type: none;
margin: 0 0 0 0;
padding: 0 0 0 0;
position: relative;
z-index: 999;
}

odd

Weird one.

Locally, it's wiping out the CSS menu when the slider effect occurs but on the web server it looks ok (apart from the home button). The file are identical, in fact I even downloaded them from the web server, overwriting my original files, to test the theory.

Also, I have a grey background on the page that doesn't display until you click on the slider arrows?

Something weird going on anyhoo.

Thanks for the advice.

cant really say why it is acting differently on your local testing server. but it seams to work correctly on the remote server.
