Navigation Bar Problem with CSS

Posted on 2014-04-25

I have a simple navigation bar with a basic dropdown menu. My issue is when the drop down menu pops down it moves all of the text on the page.  How do I get this text to stay and the drop down menu to overlap my data.  Also if I added more drop down menus to the other links I would need those to do the same. You can see the site here: http://doeringdesign.com/MrBid2/ and have the files attached. The PNG files (fire, water, wind) go into a folder called images, if needed.

Thanks in advance!

Add position absolute to line 93 of styles.css
#menu ul ul {
  overflow: hidden;
  padding: 0 45px;
  position:  absolute;
}

Open in new window

It looks fine to me in Chrome and IE 9.

To ensure everything is OK you can do as julianH suggests, and also add a z-index value. If you use a high number such as 100 you have plenty of space beneath that for all other elements. This only works on positioned elements so to have the correct layout you will need to add positioning to any element that the menu overlaps.

I apologize for the time it took me to respond. I have been out of the office for a few weeks and just getting caught up on a number of issues. This solution worked perfectly and I was able to use the code you posted almost verbatim.
