[resolved] Drop down, title overlap, z index or something issue.... (3 posts)

    OK, I'll admit, I'm no css guru..... I'm usually able to figure things out...but not this time.

    After upgrading to 3.0, I swapped out my old menu for the one that comes with 2010. Took a couple minutes, and all is great...except the darn dropdown. Now, I think this is only happening on IE, but I don't have FF handy atm, so I can't be sure.

    Anyway, the dropdown has a z-index of 99999 (which is how it's set in the 2010 theme, I literally copy/pasted til I get it right)

    But the dropdown won't come up in front of the title area of the content (widget) element below it.

    www . rvoodoo . com is the link (without the spaces obviously)

    I've tried adding low z-index (1, 10, etc) to the title area, and the widget area as a whole.

    I added a negative (-1) z-index to the title area, it disappears behind the widget area BG. I try making that widget bg a lower negative, and everything starts to disappear behind the wrapper

    So.... negative z index won't work on the widget area as it goes away, but a low positive z index on the widget area, with a super high z index on the dropdown doesn't work....the dropdown is still behind the widget title. Anyone got any ideas?

    OK, well....I messed around for an hour, then did the simple thing (in my mind)

    I had the menu wrapped in a div.... that div had a high z-index..... but that didn't matter

    I wrapped the menu wrap...in a wrap!

    Gave the wrap's wrap a high z-index, and that did it! Makes no sense to me, but I'll take it!

    Thank you for this post helped a lot.

    It may also be worth adding that the new "wrap" must set as position:relative;
