I am using Joomla 2.5 with mx_joofree7 template. I created a drop down menu and the menu items don't show on the home page where a flash header is right below the menu. They do show on the other pages where that flash header is not present. I found an article that showed how to add code <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> and wmode="transparent" in the embed tag but the flash code doesn't have an embed tag and <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> was already in the code. I went ahead and added <embed wmode="transparent"></embed> before the </object> tag but that still didn't help. Any help to get my menu items showing would be greatly appreciated.

Drop down menu items don't show on top of flash on mx_joofree7 template 1 year 1 week ago #45891
The solution may be in a different area however. I don't know how much you know about Joomla and css, so if anything I say is not clear or you already tried it just let me know.
First thing to check is that you have the menu levels set to show. Look in the Module manager and find the menu module and on the parameter at the right side of the page make sure you have it set to show all the levels.
Second I would check the css and see what the z-index is on the menu module and the header. Make sure the menu is in "front" of the header. Here's a reference on the z-index property www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_pos_z-index.asp
