Slideshow

On the Index.php page, I've changed the graphic of the girl. I want to put a slideshow where her face is.

My question is in the code, where would I place my mouse, in order to put a div tag there so I can put the slideshow inside the tag?

Would it be relative as well?

Thanks

I see no one answer this question. I just purchased PowerStore and have spent over an hour searching code to figure this out. Does anyone have the answer? Thanks

The #topNavigation div is what contains the background image of the graphic of the girl. I think the most flexible way to handle this would be to adjust the height of the #topNavigation div in the CSS so that it doesn't show the girl anymore. Then you can add another div, called #slideshow for instance, on the same level and after #topNavigation. This will you give you a new div area where you can put your slideshow.

The other approach would be just adding a new div inside the #topNavigation div and positioning that where you need it to go. This way would preserve the graphic of the girl, but allow you to put stuff on tope of it.

Hi Justin,

I did get this working last night. Now the only other issue is the sub-menu goes behind the flash slideshow. The slideshow size is the same size as the topnav_bg.jpg with the girl(1000x296).

Any ideas on how to fix this?

I think you need to set the wmode to transparent for the flash object. That is usually the problem that prevents things from overlapping flash.

Hi Ray,

I tried that but it did not work.

Here is the code.

<div id="flashxmedia">
<script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','1000','height','265','src','Images/home','quality','high','pluginspage','http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','Images/home', 'name="wmode"','value="transparent' ); //end AC code
</script><noscript><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0" width="1000" height="265">
<param name="movie" value="Images/home.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" name="vmode" value="transparent" />
<embed src="Images/home.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="1000" height="265"></embed>
</object>
</noscript></div>

Maybe z-index of the menu or style attributes of the associated layer... do you have a url where I can view the problem.
