I was doing some extra job for one of the clients, some changes on the web site full of blinking flash banners. Idea was to get users’ attention even more by displaying some floating windows… lovely … Obvious choice would be jQuery modal dialog… So I made it … Unfortunately it has shown up that some of the flash banners remain ‘over’ the dialog, and some of them don’t. After digging into that I figured out that the reason behind that is one of flash parameters: “wmode” (thanks God this is not another inner flash issue).
Because I currently work with a couple of projects where I extensively use jQuery framework, together with it’s plugins I decided to write a post in which I can gather all of my ideas, tips that i have arrived during my work with this library. I am a kind of guy that has a huge mess not only on his computer’s desktop but even within project files. It happens that when I arrive a problem, and I am sure I have figured it out in some other project but it usually takes me ages to dig through all of them to find even simplest solution.
I am currently working on a small project for my own. My favourite (and the only one tester) was complaining on some of “ajax” features. Tests were done with use of Firefox 3.0 - I was developing on Firefox 3.5 and had absolutely no problems with those problematic features. Anyway I decided to check this out an downloaded 3.0 version ( most recent is 3.0.11). You can have multiple instances of Firefox on Your machine - just make sure You install them in separate directories.
