[resolved] Floating Images in gallery (5 posts)

    Hi there

    I use the RPS Gallery plugin and it works very well. Could you please tell me how I can force the image being viewed to stay on top?

    The image opens up great but if I have a youtube embedded link on my page the image always goes behind it. You can see what I mean here:
    http://alittlebitsideways.co.nz/nz-hill-climb-championship-golden-cross-rd-manawahe-rd-19th-and-20th-january-2013/ Scroll down and have the youtube links roughly center of the screen and then click on the last image in the first gallery which should be near the top of the page.

    Is there a way around this?

    Many thanks

    Hi Jason,

    Thank you for using the RPS Image Gallery plugin – we're glad that you like it.

    We tested your page as you described using the latest versions of Safari, Chrome and Firefox (for Mac) and cannot duplicate the problem you are seeing. The image opens over the youtube embed each time.

    Perhaps you can let us know about your OS and browser and we'll go from there.

    I'm using Internet Explorer 9 and Windows 7

    It appears that this is a common issue and affects IE 8 and 9 based on our testing. The solution is to add "wmode=opaque" to the query string of the youtube iframe like so:

    <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/3wnM1jc-D-w?wmode=opaque" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Unfortunately you cannot pass the wmode parameter using the oembed method whereby you simply place the video link in your post. This solution requires that you use the iframe provided by YouTube's Share > Embed option.

    Let us know if you need anything else.
