Fix for PixoPoint or Suckerfish Menu Expanding Behind Objects

If you are using PixoPoint Menu for WordPress or Suckerfish menu for Joomla or any similar such menu which happens to expand or hide behind embedded objects in your page, like flash objects, image gallery / rotators, other embedded objects (google adsense advertisments), then here is the solution.

The solution is very simple, you just need to add a container div that wraps your menu.

Open your template’s header.php file or index.php file depending on where you are calling the menu script. For PixoPoint menu it would look like this:

<?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?>

Replace it with this

<div id="menu-container"><?php if (function_exists('pixopoint_menu')) {pixopoint_menu();} ?></div>

Save the file and then in your template’s CSS file (style.css or the corresponding css file), add the following line at the end

#menu-container {position:relative;z-index:99;

That should be all, now your menu should appear on top of all embedded content. More information about this issue is available here.
