CSS Navigation - The first anchor / button list in the list does not work when all others do?

advertisements

I have created a horizontal navigation bar similar to many I have done before. Inexplicably, the first link does not function properly but all others do. When I roll over the link with the mouse, two things are different in the first button: the cursor does not change to a hand as with all other links/clickable items on the page and the rollover effect does not function.

HTML

<div id="nav">
    <ul>
        <li id="bt1"><a href="#">Menus</a></li>
        <li id="bt2"><a href="#">Events</a></li>
        <li id="bt3"><a href="#">Farmer's Page</a></li>
        <li id="bt4"><a href="#">Hours and Location</a></li>
        <li id="bt5"><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
        <li id="bt6"><a href="#">About</a></li>
    </ul>
</div>

The logo is hovering over the menu, so you effectively can't use the first menu item even though it is visible. (the logo has a transparent background over the link)

This is an easy fix, add some z-index to the menu:

#nav{
    background: blue;
    position:absolute;
    top:0px;
    left:410px;
    width:520px;
    height:120px;
    z-index: 20;
}

That should fix it.

Good thing you posted the website because this had nothing to do with the menu tbh :p
