  • Hello everyone,

    I’m trying to edit my WordPress theme on this website in the following way:

    In the top menu (CSS: art-menu) this image should be displayed above the ‘hover’ item (so the item where the mouse is on).

    Can somebody help me out?
    The problem is that this image will have to be displayed abóve the item (so outside the art-menu div).

    Thanks in advance.

    It’s all about this site.
    There’s not very much to post on Pastebin; it’s all about the CSS code.

    Do you get my problem?
    The image that is now being displayed when your mouse is on an item, should appear above the ‘hover ‘item.

    Can you help me?
