    The problem I am experiencing is the flash content stays above the content gateway window. I have tried the z-index method in the divs and the wmode=transparent in the flash but that only got it to work in firefox and not in google chrome or internet explorer. How do I make this locker work in IE?

    You need to make it so the flash frame does not start until the gateway window has expired. Use your standard if/else coding in AS4.

    Add wmode="opaque" to your flash embed code. This should do the trick.

    I'm having this exact same issue but still can't seem to fix it, i've tried all the different variations... Could someone perhaps tell me exactly what needs to be changed in this embed code to get my content locker to appear over a youtube video that's embedded into my theme on WP?

    Thank you so much!

    You basically put a placeholder image. You can screenshot a deleted youtube video if you like (because it will have a black background and a big play icon).

    HTML:
    <div><img src='placeholder.jpg' onclick='this.parentNode.innerHTML=document.getElementById("hidden_movie").innerHTML; ' /></div><div id="hidden_movie" style="display:none;">EMBED CODE HERE</div>
    And you're set.

    Thanks, very helpful! Do you mind telling me what the difference between that and just adding in wmode=transparent , which is suggested in many places is?

    Thanks :)

    i'm not sure if wmode transparent works in linux. Last time I remember, it didn't. Besides that, flash content doesn't render inside hidden elements, so it's faster and safer.

    You can go with wmode transparent but you need to add it in two places:
    Code:
    <embed [...] wmode="transparent"></embed>
    <!-- and as a parameter -->
    <object [...]>
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
    </object>
