Controlling the position of a popup (help)


Well-known member
Here's the CSS for a fade in popup (in a layer). My problem is that flash banners are showing up through the popup and affecting the readability of the graphic on that popup. Basically the popup is coming in right in the center of the page. If I can get the popup to come up on the left of the browser window, it will avoid the flash banner.

Or is there a code I can add to the window to not allow flash content to show through?

#fa {
    background: #000;
    text-align: center;
    font-family: Arial,sans-serif;
    padding: 10px;
    width: 800px;
    border: 2px solid #666;
    position: absolute;
    margin: 0 auto;
    top: 50px;
    display: none;
    opacity: 0;
    KHTMLOpacity: 0;
    filter: alpha(opacity=0);
    -moz-opacity: 0;
    z-index: 1000;

#fa a {
    text-decoration: none;
    border: none;
    font-size: 9px;
    color: #333;

#fa img {
    border: none;

#fa .fa_close {
    position: absolute;
    top: 5px;
    right: 5px;
} {
    display: block;

Is this something I can add into the ad delivery system, or is this something the creator of the flash banners have to do before they send me the ready made flash banner?

that only works if Im adding a static flash movie in the page via html. But what about if Im using an ad delivery script to deliver the flash ads? There is no way to add that.

If you have control over the script then you should be able to modify the output. Otherwise I don't know how you would implement this.
