Support » Plugin: WOW Slider » WOW Slider Desktop Software vs WP Plugin

  • Resolved robertmohr


    The plugin has z-index of 1,5,6,7,10 but the desktop software creates a z-index of -1,50,60,70,100. Why the huge difference? Your desktop software creates a file where your container z-index is 100 thus I had to raise my Theme’s nav z-index number to 101 so that the drop down menu will slide over the WOW Slider.

    Can there be an update to the desktop software to fix this problem and also this huge number difference?

    1) z-index value of slideshows generated with WOWSlider is 100. I don’t understand where you found values “1, 5, 6, 7, 10”. Actually, plugin itself has not any z-index value. ZIP file contains WOWSlider files (images, .css, .js) and couldn’t have z-index parameter.
    Also, maximal value of z-index (for modern browsers) is 2147483647:
    So, “100” isn’t so “large” value.
    Also, there is no standard/universal/default value of z-index parameter for different elements. Each developer can set any value that he wants. Of course, we couldn’t guess what “z-index” value has each element on the page of any user and which element should be overlapped and which shouldn’t. So, it’s impossible to set “universal” value of “z-index” parameter that will be suitable for any user in any case.
    If you use elements that was created by different developers, of course these elements can have a conflict.
    So, it’s not a big problem to change the value of one parameter.

    I added wow slider code to Twenty Twelve: Header (header.php)It looks great but it covers the drop-down menu.
    I didn’t change anything in css. Does anybody know how to fix it?

    Just fixed the problem by changing css in the Twenty Twelve to z-index:500; Worked!

    If Twenty Twelve is updated you will need to change again.
    If you don’t change your slideshows I would recommend changing the style.css attached to the slideshow ID. Lowering the z-index in the slider worked best for me. Glad to found an option for your case. This issue cost me days in search and trial and test.
