I have a CMS-generated main-nav menu with one sub-menu. Both menus are standard ul tags with a class of “navCMSListMenuUL” which is then styled in my CSS accordingly. The issue is that on a:hover, the container expands to accommodate the newly displayed sub-nav ul.
I would like for the sub-nav to go outside of the container and flow at a higher z-index than any elements beneath the container. There are a couple of other things that I would like to clean up in this nav, but those are ancillary to the sub-nav flow. I have created a reduced test-case in Codepen @ http://codepen.io/patrickTheWizard/pen/ZGWKYX .
