I have a jQuery vertical menu plugin. I changed .sidebar and .widget overflow to visible to allow the slide-out submenu to show. This worked.
My issue now is that if the menu is at the bottom of the sidebar, on slideout, the menu is hidden behind the footer. The same happened with accordians in the sidebar. They slide down and fall behind the footer. When extending the static height of the sidebar, it too becomes hidden and even extends down the page below the footer, but still behind it.
Is there a style I can add to the footer that will make it slide down/adjust to the slideout footer and to the sidebar height itself?
