Flash Widget Covering up Live Search results (4 posts)

    I'm using WP-Cumulus and Dave's WordPress Live Search on my website. When I do a test search, the results are covered up by my Tag Cloud. Otherwise, each plugin does exactly what I need it to do.

    I know the problem is with the Flash animation of the tag cloud, but I have no idea how to go about fixing it. I've already tried changing the parameters in the plugin's php file from 'transparent' to 'opaque' with no success. The script file yielded no results either; and the Flash file is protected so I can't even get a look inside. And yes, I already tried using Firebug, with no conclusive results.

    I've already Google searched, and visited the developer's site for answers, and it led me here to the WP Forums, so please, if you're the developer, give an answer. This is surely a common problem, yet you offer no solution on your site or the plugin's FAQ.

    Any help is appreciated, Thank You.

    I made a temporary solution by editing the search plugin's default css
    max-height: 140px;

    Still need a more permanent solution though...

    Setting "wmode" to transparent (which can be done in the widget's settings) should allow for things to be visible over the flash movie. The cloud has not z-index setting, so most thing should go over it by default.

    My apologies for the late response. Thank you for the help, it worked just like it should!
