    Need help with placing stuff (java/html)

    Ok, I got these really cool banner for my website. It is a flash banner. But the only bad thing is it has a bunch of add crap below it. I was wondering if theres any way to like make a black picture show above it so you would only see like half the banner. Is this possible? Thanks.

    Well thanks for the help, lol If I shouldn't be posting these types of questions here then were might I seek help on this matter. Its rather a easy question for someone who knows. I have tried to line up an image but the flash banner always is on top. Might there be a way to make the image be ontop? Thanks.

    I guess it depends on what you're doing. What is this "cool banner" you got, and where did you get it from?

    I assume if they have advertisements below it, then they are perhaps required to use the banner on your site

    I know I wouldn't voluntarily put a banner on any site I was making unless the client requested it (let alone a flash banner, since that also introduces other potential problems, such as people that don't have the shockwave plugin installed yet), or it was for some good money! I'm confused anyway - isn't a banner usually an advertisement in and of itself?

    sometimes it's worth it to get a job just so you don't have to deal with such frustrating ad things!

    as for the flash always being on top, you may want to use zindex so you can say layer positions.

    I have seen a number of threads dedicated to zindex on this site alone... just search it.

    z-index can define layers, if something was overlapping, this would control what showed on top, what showed second, ect.
    <div style="z-index:100"></div>

    Well I tryed to figure it out but I still can't get it to work. Perhaps because its a flash banner and its always moving it makes itself always on top? Mabe you could explain a little bit more about how to get it to work. Thanks alot.

    not even z-index can get layers over flash, there was a thread in the general web building section about this... but it sounds to me like you are trying to get rid of an advertisment right? the url you provided seems to be dead....

    Ok, well the banner was just an example. What I really need most of all is a ad buttom removed from a menu. I got a cool Free navigation menu from: http://www.flashbuttons.com/ sorry about the last link. I don't know why its dead. As you were saying, there is no way to cover a flash? So am I pretty much screwed? Thanks for all your help and fast replys.

    advice

    My best advice would be to download macromedia's 30 day free trial of Flash and then read a tutorial or two quickly, I haven't tried this one but most other tutorials on this page are very decent:
    http://www.w3schools.com/flash/

    Before I learned flash I thought they were like giant animated gifs and the people that made them had their masters degree in multimedia design and stuff LOL... but trust me, flash is very very easy....

    Thanks but I could still use some help, lol. You have provided me with some information on how it works. Thats helpful and I will read it all but what I most need help on is once I get the flash how do I put an image over it. Anyone care to explain how z-index might work? Thanks again.

    um, no you arent, the flash is supposed to have the advert

    and not even z-index will cover flash.
    and like i said before, we should not be discussing how to cover up a banner that is supposed to be there.
