Left Admin Bar overlap problem  (#2948)

This bug was listed as a secondary bug in this post. 

The original bug was closed, but the secondary issue still exists where if someone needs to scroll through the new content bar, at the top of the admin bar it covers up other tabs, such as "admin console".

This was retested in IE 7 version 7.3.8 and is still an issue.  Not an issue in Firefox.

It would appear this cannot be fixed without replacing the slide panel. Everything I've tried has failed.

Would it be acceptable to change the admin bar into a scrollable  (with a scroll bar) div?

This requires a big change to the AdminBar, which we'll have to wait to do in 7.4. 

In 7.4 we'll be switching the admin bar to work in frames, and to use YUI instead of the javascript it uses now. This will resolve your problem, as well as some RFE's that have been submitted for the admin bar. However, it's too big of a change to make in a bug fix release.

Just came across this bug myself - however I might have a fix for it that is simple and could be rolled out easily in the current release.

This is actually a bug in AdminBar's css where the Z-Index of the admin bar is set in the wrong css tag (.slidePanel instead of #slidePanel). This causes the z-index to be set incorrectly and on sites with css that use z-index (like the zenlike one I submitted to contribs) causes all sorts of dramas.

To fix this, you need to edit the following file:


and insert the following line in the first css block (after line 7)

z-index: 100;

You'll need to do a hard refresh, but the admin bar will now appear on top like it should!

That doesn't fix the problem for me.  I fooled around with z-order in a few places, but wasn't able to get it to fix this issue.
