Re: Drop down menu disappears behind ad

Guess it is NOT fixed.

The ad that I had a problem with a minute ago was the visitcalgary.com one. When I refreshed the browser, I was able to access the dropdown menu, however, no ad appeared at all.

I'll keep an eye out to see if there is and report back. I have not had it happen today, so perhaps you fixed the problem.

Darn ad servers... they seem to throw kinks into the system don't they with out warning.

Sorry. Forgot. Firefox 13. I can't switch to IE because the chat doesn't work in it.

The ads seem to have disappeared from that space and jumped up entirely outside of the forum space (above the "Sailnet Sailing Community" logo) since I posted so I'm OK with it way up there.

Also on such issues these posts will be 'noticed' more quickly if you report them too. (which I've done just now)

Re: Drop down menu disappears behind ad

Thanks Denise. I don't mind the ads (when they don't prevent me from getting where I want to go). I figure if everyone blocks the ads, the site won't be able to sell advertising and continue.

Anyway, I just wanted the admins to check their code.

Re: Drop down menu disappears behind ad

That's not a problem, that's a FEATURE designed to ensure the ads are read without interruption. After all, the ads pay for the site.

Re: Drop down menu disappears behind ad

I don't see any ads much any more Donna. On Firefox that I use it has Adblock and I down loaded a bunch of filters to stop Google . site I used is called fanboy it works!
