Drop down menu

I've created a drop down menu on hover, positioned in header. But, on hover when it displays menu options, it spreads the header height to dispay them, and I want header height to stay the same, and those options to be displayed below, over the picture that comes streight after the header. Any advice?

Chris is right, you should put your code using 'Markdown Cheatsheet' or I think the best option is codepen.io or jsfiddle. I wrote very simple solution to your problem. Maybe this will help you: http://codepen.io/anon/pen/eJKgx/

I would recommend posting some of the code you are using for your drop down menu. Or upload a few screenshots to an image sharing place and link the URLs showing us what is happening.

if you are going to post code, be sure to use the Markdown Cheatsheet that is at the bottom (below the reply box). It will tell you how to make your code appear in a styled box to make it easy for everyone to read.
