    Lightbox Pops up behind Youtube video embedd. Help

    Asked by justinalasley on June 21, 2012 at 11:59 PM

    Here is the test page in question:


    BLUE Sign Up!  button below the Video brings up the jotform lightbox.  In Firefox it almost comes in front (the border actually goes behind) but in Chrome it pops up totally behind. 

    Don't scroll too far down so the button appears maybe lower half of your page so you can see the affect that's happening.


    I also had to add that doctype line to make it appear for people (it was fine when I was tsesting it) but that's made my menu bar's dark blue buttons not show up dark blue *until you move your mouse oer htem'   i know maybe a separate issue, but do I have to have that doc type in there???  or is there another one I can use?


    <!doctype html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    I have provided a solution to this in a similar thread opened a long time ago.


    Basically, you will just have to append the string &wmode=transparent to the end of the video's URL in the Youtube codes.

    For example:


    Hope this helps.
