Menun covers site (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I hope this question hasn't already been asked, but I did a search and didn't find anything.

    My site is here.

    I took the challenge of messing with the theme with next to no knowledge of PHP and CSS... so please bear with me!

    My menu is currently written as such on the style sheet (I'm using WordPress Classic).

    #menu {
    	background: #bcc4c8;
    	border-left: 1px dotted #000;
            border-bottom: 1px dotted #000;
    	position: absolute;
    	right: 26%;
    	top: 55%;
    	width: 11em;
    	color: #717c82;

    So if you look at my site (and have the same resolution as I do on your computer) you see that beneath the menu is a table I inserted on the index page (with html), so that the menu wouldn't cover over the content of the page. However, if you don't have the same resolution on your computer as I do, the menu is not aligned, and hovers other portions of the page. Is there a way to fix this?

    Thank you for any help.

    The "menu" is your sidebar.

    The absolute positioning is what places it in the middle of your column.

    I can't tell what you're trying to do with the table, but I don't think it will get you the layout you want.

    You've got at least two head and two body tags that I could see.

    I think your theme is seriously borked, and I'd recommend starting over with a brand new theme. Find one that has a layout you like and make small modifications in color and such, rather than trying to rebuild the format.

    W3Schools have free tutorials and references on HTML and CSS. The Codex has tons of info on building themes. You could download several themes and look to see how they're put together.

    Good luck.
