Quick question: Where can I find a iPage web hosting that let me use my own domain? Hoping for any answer. Another question on my mind: I have a drop down menu which appears in front of a popup (dropin?) window and in front of my iPage site menu items. I have tried increasing the z-index but it has no effect. As far as I know this only happens in IE6 on windows and not in NN or Mozilla. I don't know about the other browsers or platforms yet. For a view of what is happening go here:.

Thanks in advance for your help...

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

Comment #1

So are you talking about the iPage site menu going behind the "editfindfast menu?.

Maybe I am not understanding. which menu and what exaclty is it doing?..

Comment #2

Yes that is what I meant. So you do understand the problem. Sorry. How can I fix this? I haver tried everything...

Comment #3

That is what I meant you can't. IE is so tighly intergrated into the OS that it is the OS that is controlling the select box. the other browsers are not as hooked into the OS and it doesn't happen..

I have a really good link that explains it but I can't seem to find it. I will post it if I do..

Edit: and yes the only way to fix it is to hide the select box..

Use.

Visibility: hidden;.

On it when the menu is over it.

Edit II: here it is Bob,.

Tht explains it the best I think...

Comment #4

Aha! so there is a solution. I knew you had it somewhere in your library. Thanks Scoutt. That at least points me in the right direction and gives me something to play with...

Comment #5

Well I wouldn't call it a solution, but a work-around if you may. the solution would be to control it by z-index but you can't..

You are welcome Bob, glad to help..

Comment #6

I could hide the select box.

Using "visibility: hidden;" I tried it and it works but I can't figure out how to get it to hide.

Only.

When the menu or the dropin layer is over it. Any ideas how to do this?..

Comment #7

Well I have never done it but this is the way I believe..

In the menu that gets dropped down you have to detect if it drops down over the selct box. if it does then you hae to hide the select box and then put it back after the menu leaves..

Maybe somebody can help further, sorry Bob, but javascript is not my fortay...

Comment #8

I have to give up on the Javascript idea. It is far too complicated and messy. What about simply placing those drop down menus in a layer positioned at that spot and then assigning a z-index to the layer?.

This should work no?..

Comment #9

You don't have a choice. the select box doesn't go by z-index so what every you use it will be above everything. and no you can't make the layer have a z-index higher, hence the seclt box doesn't go by z-index..

That is what that iPage site I showed you said, did you not read it?..

Comment #10

Yes I did read it but I was just hoping this might work. I am not that proficient with layers so my understanding of them is minimal. Also, I have never run into this problem before or read anything about it before so I am having trouble accepting the fact that it can't be fixed. I guess I will have to move the page items around after all. Thanks for your help Scoutt...
