Please refer to the sidebar menu at

If you look closely, the menu is hiding behind the content pane on the right. I am using Joomla here.

I have tried the z-index and a lot of quirks from the web but I am unable to get the CSS on top of all the elements on the page (i.e. the right content pane actually)

If you could please help me get the menu out from beneath 'those' layers, I shall be grateful and shall learn a new quirk in the process!

Thanks in advance!

Your problem is the overflow:hidden on .sidebar1 which is preventing your hover menus from being displayed. Removing that seems to make the clipping go away.
