    I'm stumped. I have a vertical radmenu that expands out to the right. All works fine in most browsers, but when I try to view in ie7, the slide doesn't seem to have any colour applied to it. I've tried adding background-color:#fff !important to just about any where I can think but it still stays transparent.

    The site in question is www.researchtopolicy.org.
     
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi KMac,

    The problem is not related to transparency - IE6/7 have a rather broken stacking order and the slide out menu falls behind the main content. To fix it, add z-index: 1 to your #left_container. Let me know if this helps.

    I'm a bit behind the curve on this.  I know this post was 2 years ago, but I've just stumbled across an archaic user who is still using IE7 and the sub menus are not visible for them.  How do I implement the suggestion here.  My RadMenu already has a high z-index.  How do I set the z-index of the sub menus.  My CSS doesn't currently have a #left_container item Do I need to add it?

    CSS isn't my strong suit.

    Thanks.

    Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree.  I have a standard horizontal menu with drop down sub menus.  In IE8 and IE9, the menus work fine, but in IE7, it appears as though the drop downs don't work at all.  I thought maybe this was the cause and the sub menus were somehow dropping behind the page content.  Maybe they really aren't working at all.  I just need to find a solution to this quickly.

    Hi Dave,

    It seems that it is a z-index issue, but when it comes to IE7, the solution for the issue might not be so  straightforward. Please take a look at this post and try out the suggested approach - http://therealcrisp.xs4all.nl/meuk/IE-zindexbug.html

    In case it does not work, however, I would like to ask you for a live url where I can inspect the issue and come back to you with a suitable solution?

    Kind regards,

    I read the link you provided, but don't see a work around or solution.  Just a statement that absolute positioning is the problem.  I have a site you can visit to see the issue, but it requires logging in and I don't want to post credentials in a public forum, how can I get them to you?

    Thanks.
