jQuery superfish plugin menu appearing below element

Hi,

I am using the jQuery superfish plugin http://users.tpg.com.au/j_birch/plugins/superfish/ and below that have an image cycle based on the cycle plugin http://malsup.com/jquery/cycle/

All is ok, but in IE6 and 7, the drop down menu steadfastly refuses to appear above the image fade effect which is directly below. I have tried to set the imagegallery to position relative and a z-index of 1, and placing the elements in the menu to a higher z-index but all to no avail. It works in Firefox of course and IE8.

I was wondering if the plugin mentioned on the superfish page (bgi frame) would work, but have tried that, and alas no!

Any help here very much appreciated!

Hi,

Sorry, the site concerned is now live, and I have had to make adjustments for IE in other ways - like, for example, not showign a drop down menu at all to users of IE6/7. It works in IE8. If you have a look at www.garlandgroup.co.uk you will see the drop down menu in action over the top of the image cycle - hope this helps.

The XHTML seems to be different in IE than in Firefox. The submenus are omitted in the IE version.

Why don't you create a copy of the page for testing then?

Hi Kravimir,

Gave everything else a high z-index - apart from the masthead! Thanks for this - works for me.
