Nav Bar Element Not Active? (links arent working)

I'm trying to create a sidebar with links on a wordpress page.


HTML for sidebar:

    <div class="right">
    <ul style="list-style-type:none;">
    <li><a href="#">About Us</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Our Products</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">FAQs</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Login</a></li>


.right{ position: absolute; top: 400px; right:980px; bottom: 80px;}

Basically it just doesn't treat the links as links. It's like the element is disabled. All I can do is see the element. I think it's behind something...not sure. I've played around with th eposition and I can get it to work if I make it relative but then it messes up the location of the sidebar.

Also: I know there are more effective ways of doing this, but I am a student with restricted access to the admin panel of this wordpress site so I'm just trying to do what I can with what I can.

Thank you for any advice/wisdom!

UPDATE: Works in IE just not


"I think it's behind something...not sure"

Try to add z-index: 1000; (or higher) and width: 400px;.
z-index will move the absolute element on top of other elements. Sort of like layers.


.right {
    z-index: 1000;
    width: 400px;
