Overlapping images & sidebar alignment


URL: http://goo.gl/7yk4zm

I am having trouble with the social icons in the sidebar. They are supposed to overlap Karin’s photo so they are half on the photo and half in the white space. I’ve added position: relative to the photo and a z-index to the icons, but it’s not working. What am I missing?

Also, I have a split sidebar further down the page where you see the 125x125 ads and a 160x600 ad. I cannot figure out why the right split sidebar is pushed all the way to the edge of the sidebar container. Do you see what’s causing it?

Thanks for any ideas!

You need to add position: relative to the element with the z-index:

.menu-sidebar-social-container .menu {
clear: both;
height: 45px;
margin: -48px auto 0;
padding: 0;
text-align: center;
width: 272px;
z-index: 999;
[COLOR="#FF0000"]position: relative;[/COLOR]

Regarding the sidebar issue, the element is floated right, and there’s nothing to stop it going to the right edge:

.split-sidebar-right {
float: right;

You could add a right margin if you wish.
