    Flash needs activaiting before you can follow the links

    Got my flash items to appear behind my menus thanxs all.

    my next questions is .....

    As you can see in the attached picture you need to click the flash item before the links become active, i.e. click a link twice, is there a way around this?

    Thank you Gavin

    It's the result of the lawsuit by Eolas and MS over a patent about plugins in web browsers running automatically. AS far as I can tell they seem to run anyway it is just annoying when you try and interact with it.

    Don't think you can though as it is to do with the browser not the web site coding so beyond your control.

    There's a javascript trick you can use.

    If the user has disabled javascript, I'm afraid your out of luck.
