Home Forums CSS box-shadow ‘problem’ – any ideas? Re: box-shadow ‘problem’ – any ideas?


Oh geez, I actually ran into this issue several months ago. In my case the header has some box shadow and the drop down nav did as well so the shadows would blend together pretty much exactly how you’re trying to get yours now.

Unfortunately I couldn’t come up with an answer. I had to use a repeating image for the header for a fake box shadow and then used real box shadow on the drop down menu.

I wish there was a property that would cancel out the box shadow if 2 elements with box shadow touched.

I don’t know of any other solutions, sorry. But if someone else does I would love to hear it
