NOTE: I’ve been doing a lot of linking to other people’s site blogs. This is partly to help me remember where to find the information as well as to share with my clients (and anyone else) searching for similar solutions. The NextGen Gallery plug-in is so comprehensive, I’ve set my husband’s photography site up with … Continue reading Excellent Gallery Plug-in for WordPress – NextGen
This article impressed me enough to share it. If you are creating a website with a css drop-down menu that happens to rest directly north of a placed swf animation, you will find Internet Explorer ignores any z-index settings you may have placed.
