After a long hiatus from Drupal work, I now need to meet a request to modify a Drupal 7 site. In the existing theme I need one more full-width theme region than what's available. (At one point I had made a custom theme to do just that, but now having too many problems getting the same previously working one to work again.)
The item to be inserted is a slideshow view block. Lacking the ideal extra region, I tried inserting into the Menu Region, below the actual menu block. It displays fully. But, the height of this new block does not expand the total height of the region, thus the regions below it do not get pushed down as needed. The slideshow view block just overlaps and obscures some of what's below it.
I can't find a CSS selector and property to make this work. Can you suggest a path for solving this? Or, is the attempt to make this work in a Menu Region just not going to be workable?
