    Dropdown Menus Hiding Behind Content

    Hi! I'm having an issue with my new drop down bars. Here is my website: www.wifemotherteacher.com

    The code for the drop down menu can be found here: http://mybloggertopic.blogspot.com/2...ss3-multi.html

    Thank you in advance for your advice!
    Tiffany

    Hi Tiffany. Welcome to the forums.

    The first problem here is the overflow: hidden set on the UL:

    Code:
    .tabs .widget ul, .tabs .widget ul {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    list-style: none;
    }
    Remove that, and the drop menus won't be cut off.

    However, there are further problems to fix, as the sub menus still can't be hovered properly. But one thing at a time ...

    Hi Ralph,
    Thanks for your response!
    Please pardon my elementary level knowledge of HTML. Can you please tell me what you mean by "hidden set on teh UL"?
    I'm sorry!

    In the HTML code of your pages, your menu is contained inside a UL, or unordered list (<ul>):

    Code:
    <ul id="nav">
     - links here
    </ul>
    Then there are styles set for your UL, such as the green background etc. In your styles, there is the "overflow: hidden" rule I highlighted above, but that sholdn't be there.

    Are you familiar with HTML and CSS? If not, we'll have to talk you through this a little more carefully. It would be helpful to know how the site was set up, and what you know about the code at this stage.

    Hi Ralph,

    Thanks again for your patience with me. I've created my blog using blogger. I don't know the difference between HTML and CSS. My knowledge is limited to what I've added to my page in the last two months through online tutorials. Today's problem arose when I decided I wanted a drop down menu instead of a normal menu to better organize my site for my readers.

    I copied the code over to a word document - that's what I'm looking at it in. That way I always have the option of the undo button if I screw up! haha!

    I don't see the word overflow anywhere... Will I actually see that word somewhere in the code I linked to in my original post?

    Thank you again!!!!

    OK, that's fine. Unfortunately, I don't know Blogger at all, but I think I get a sense of how it works.

    CSS is a styling language for web pages. A lot of the code you pasted in for the menu is CSS code. In Blogger, the CSS code is stored in various places—some on the HTML page itself, near the top, inside <style> </style> tags, other styles stores in separate files that end in .css. The styles that I was referencing above are in this lovely little file here, to which you may not have access:

    http://www.blogger.com/static/v1/wid...s_2_bundle.css

    So, a different approach might be needed.

    You could try adding this to the styles in your HTML:

    Code:
    .tabs .widget ul, .tabs .widget ul {
    overflow: auto !important;
    }
    So, look at your site's HTML code, and try to find the section that starts with this, near the top:

    Code:
    <style id='page-skin-1' type='text/css'>
    Paste the code above somewhere under there, perhaps just before the </style> tag further down.

    Off Topic:

    As an aside, don't use Word for code like you described above, because it has a terrible habit of inserting extra code that will mess things up for you. Instead, get a proper code editor for doing this kind of thing. there are lots of good ones for free. Here is a list I made up recently: http://pageaffairs.com/notebook/a-ro...f-code-editors

    I don't see anywhere that has <style id='page-skin-1' type='text/css'> but I DO see overflow: hidden near the top. I tried removing that an previewing the page - not only did it not work but it also caused my drop down menus to not show at all. I'll keep looking while I wait for your reply. And again, thank you!

    Ah, that helps. All this code gets run through the Blogger "back end" and spits out to the browser looking different, so it's handy to see this.

    OK, look for this line in your code above:

    Code:
    z-index:-30]]></b:skin>
    and change it to this:

    Code:
    .tabs .widget ul, .tabs .widget ul {
    overflow: auto !important;
    }
    ]]></b:skin>
    As I say, this will not fix the drop down completely, but should allow the sub menu to appear. There will be more work needed.

    Ok - I found that spot and changed it. You can view the changes on my site: http://www.wifemotherteacher.com/

    BUT - it moved my "About" tab down to the second line and instead of my drop down tabs all showing you have to use the scrolling bar on the right - which isn't what I'm looking for. Does that make sense?

    Addition to above: Since it has added the scrolling box, it's now impossible to click on a drop down tab (although they're visible) because its not possible to hover over the tab AND scroll down the bar on the right hand side at the same time. What a tease!

    Oops, I should have made it

    overflow: visible;

    rather than

    overflow: auto;

    Hallelujah!!!! I have drop down bars!!!! THANK YOU!
    It looks like you're right though... now that I have that resolved I have two new "problems"....
    1) My main tab (titled Series) is hiding behind my side bar when I pull down the drop down bars
    2) Although I can see my drop down bars as soon as I try to scroll to them they disappear

    Any ideas on either of those issues?

    Thanks again, I really appreciate your help!!!!!!!!

    Yes, I said more would be needed, and I meant it!

    this was tricky, but in the end, I realized it was easy. Just add this code into the same place as the other code you added—underneath it or above ... but just make sure it's before the ]]></b:skin> bit:

    Code:
    .tabs-outer {z-index: 100;}
    That should fix everything.
