    Flash Menu Help

    Anubis208 Level 1
      Hi! I'm new to working with Dreamweaver 8 and I'm having a bit of a problem. I have a flash menu that I need to put on a website...I designed the front page/graphics in Photoshop and made slices, now I'm editing in Dreamweaver. What I need to do is put my flash menu on the right side of the page...There is also an image on that side. How can I simply insert the menu on top of the image? Is that possible? Every time I try to insert it places the menu on the top, bottom, or side of the image and everything gets messed up. And why can't I just move the menu to where I need it to go?? I'm still teaching myself and learning about this whole web thing, so this may sound like a stupid question. I'd really appreciate any help though! Thanks in advance :)

          I guess the first thing you need to learn is that a flash menu is not really
          the way to go :-)
          Accessibility issues and problems with getting indexed with the SEs should
          be taken into account.
          As for your menu, it will always stay on top of everything else on your page
          because it is 'active content'. If you really want it to sit onto of an
          image, then that image needs to be used as a background to you container.
          Seriously though, I'd definitely reconsider the use of flash as your
          navigation system.
