  • I’m in the process of building a custom theme on top of Automattic’s great Toolbox theme.

    One conundrum I’ve run into is styling the nav section. Either part or all of the menu seems to be floating above all content… I suspected the CSS z-index property, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, as the unordered list items are not absolutely positioned.

    Here is my WordPress site in progress:

    As you can see when scrolling down, the menu in the left column is appearing on top of the fixed DIV containing the site’s graphical logo. I’d like the logo to remain on top of everything. The following CSS does correct the stacking problem, but somehow renders the links inactive:

    #access li {
    float: none;
    position: relative;
    z-index: -1;

    Has anyone run into a problem like this? Perhaps it’s a WordPress thing, and not really caused by the Toolbox theme?

    Many thanks!
