Support » Plugin: Meteor Slides » Menu drop downs over slider

  • Hi again,

    On our site we would like to place our menu bar back above the slider. It contains a couple of drop down menus (“About” and “Video Blog”), these were disappearing behind the slider. Is there anyway for the drop down menus to take priority?

    Thank you again for your help. Dan

    Hi Dan, try changing the z-index of the submenus like this so that they are layered above the slideshow:

    .main-navigation li ul {
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
        position: absolute;
        top: 100%;
        z-index: 9999;
        height: 1px;
        width: 1px;
        overflow: hidden;
        clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);

    Thank you for posting this. So which bit would I adapt if this is my current header.php?

     * The Header template for our theme
     * Displays all of the <head> section and everything up till <div id="main">
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Twenty_Twelve
     * @since Twenty Twelve 1.0

    Sorry Dan, I missed your reply. The code I shared is CSS, which goes in your theme’s style.css file. There should already be code like that in there, you just need to edit it.

    No worries. Thanks for the reply. I couldn’t see which bit to replace. I’ve posted my current code above. Sorry to be a pain.

    Dan, are you trying to move the menu, or style the menu dropdowns to display above the slideshow?
