How do I add a div ( so that I may add a static menu) over this Javascript rotating images script?

Hello Experts,

I found this nifty little code for a Javascript rotating images.
The idea was to have the background images change images ( using the script above ) while a static div holding text and links remain over the changing images.

The thing is whatever div I try to place over the rotating images, the div with text disappears and then reappears while the images change.

I don't mind using another approach at all for reaching the same result where the background images rotate whether on a div or a cell and static links remain over them.

I attached the css, js and images files if needed,

Thank you in advance.

That code is 4 years old and uses a very old version of jquery (1.4.2)  It is probably incompatible with virtually everything modern.  I would suggest you contact Tren Media to see if there is a more current version or at least try it with a current jquery library.  If you put it in a page as is, you will end up with all kinds of compatibility and conflict issues.

As Cd& said, old
So many nice slider plugins you can use these days, a popular one is
http://wowslider.com/
And you can add in any fancy text animations.

But to fix your code add this to the .rotating-item {} class

z-index: -1;

Then you can add your div into the rotating-item-wrapper div
