[Bug] - Footer ad wmode missing

Post by illza » Tue Apr 21, 2009 4:13 pm

One of the flash ads just above the footer is missing wmode="transparent" or whatever z-index is necessary to allow proper overlap. As such, the onhover ability inspector (or any hovering mouse-attached div) is being overlapped by this ad. I'm trying to find the ad again, but force-refresh isn't very reliable for getting the desired random ad. 8P

Annoying... There isn't much we can do about it, as the ad is just a little piece of javascript on our side; it can be text, image, flash sitting in an iframe.

Rather, we can see about experimenting with z-index and, if necessary, IFRAME shielding. TODO.

Uhh :P

I don't think those tags like to sit on their own empty iframe page. Damn advertisers - too bad you need them to pay the bills - electricity, space and bandwidth isn't free -.-
