Fix for drop-down menus: Window Mode for QuickTime, Flash (1 post)

    Having a problem with menu drop-down appearing behind Flash and QuickTime movies. This can be remedied by using the param wmode.

    <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> & wmode="transparent"

    Example of post without the param wmode (click on Sports drop-down)

    Example with param wmode inserted in code (click on Sports drop-down)

    I could manually code it into each video block but can't this either be added to the WP core on automatic default or perhaps a checkbox in the add multimedia dialogue box?

    See here for a fuller example of how to use the commands.

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/81JVZjGrwfA&hl=en&fs=1&"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/81JVZjGrwfA&hl=en&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344" wmode="transparent"></embed></object>
