Dropdown menu hiding behind content

Msg#: 4567661 posted 7:32 pm on Apr 24, 2013 (gmt 0)

Hi all, I'm having a problem with my new dropdown menu bar, i tried hard to figure out the problem but cannot seem to find a solution.

Here is the code for the dropdown menu bar

[HTML]#nav,#nav ul {
list-style: none outside none;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
#nav {
background: url('menu_bg.png') no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
clear: both;
font-size: 12px;
height: 58px;
padding: 0 0 0 9px;
position: relative;
width: 957px;
#nav ul {
background-color: #222;
border:1px solid #222;
border-radius: 0 5px 5px 5px;
border-width: 0 1px 1px;
box-shadow: 0 5px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);
left: -9999px;
overflow: hidden;
position: absolute;
top: -9999px;
z-index: 2;

I copied your code into a new HTML document, added the HTML:

<ul id="nav">
<li><a href="http://www.script-tutorials.com/">Home</a></li>
<li><a class="hsubs" href="#">Menu 1</a>
<ul class="subs">
<li><a href="#">Submenu 1</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Submenu 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Submenu 3</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Submenu 4</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Submenu 5</a></li>

... and it works for me. It displays over the top of a bunch of dummy lipsum.

I'm not seeing any issue with the code, but maybe there's code that you haven't shown us.

Short of your content that the submenu is supposed to pop over being at
z-index: 1;, I imagine it's something like a Flash video directly underneath your menu ... or can you give more information?
