    Hi Everyone. I'm not too too good with coding and while working on my new website I am encountering some problems. I'd just like to get the worst part out first.. It is image based. :eek: I really can't fight about this now, I'm just trying to get the site done.

    Anyway, here is my photography page...

    [​IMG]

    See the navigation bar at the bottom? Those are going to be setup using image maps.

    Okay, here is where it gets hard. (or for me at least) I'm using SlideShowPro to show off my photos and I customized the slideshow (it is a .swf) so it matches the dimensions of the big blank area in the middle of the photography page.. I need a way to overlay this .swf onto the rest of the page so it rests on top of everything, making it look like one element.

    Here is a link to the .swf I need to embed.

    Sorry for the long post, any ideas?:(

    Thank You!

    That slide show looks pretty slick.

    How is your page setup currently? Is it sitting in a table, or are do you have everything sitting in divs?

    If it's in a table you can just embed the .swf object into the proper cell of the table. Pretty much the same goes if you were using divs.

    I gather you don't actually have Adobe Flash.
    (I foyu were producing the site in Flash, you could just place the entire interface on layers beneath the swf slideshow.)

    For now, I think you could just nest a table in the area where you want the swf. It's a bit klunky, but it should work.

    Very nice. I'm glad lilstewart was able to help.

    Did I mention I love that flash slide show? :)
