  • Drop downs go behind slideshow in IE8?

    I have a client that says the dropdown menus go behind the slideshow on his IE8 browser running XP. I have a machine with that set up and cannot see it. Anyone have any idea what is going on?

    I don't have IE8 to test on, but I can imagine that the positioning used on the slider *might* be to blame. If so, it ought to be an easy fix. Try adding this to the CSS and have your client (clear his cache first and then) view the page again to see if the issue remains:

    With that done I can't imagine a way that the slider should overlay the menu.

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}

      Z-Index is definitely a good thing to research

      The MDN Web Docs site provides information about Open Web technologies including HTML, CSS, and APIs for both Web sites and progressive web apps.

        Totally worked! I had to make sure I had that position:relative; in there.
