    Positioning Problem with Push Menu

    EDIT: I ended up figuring it out, for details read last reply. If a mod could close this that would be great, thanks!

    I'm trying to design a push menu using HTML, CSS and Javascript/jQuery.

    To help you understand my problem I'll give you a little background info:
    I have a menu button at the top of the page that when clicked will push the body of the page over and reveal the hidden menu (which is to the left of the viewing area).

    So far I have most of that part working. The body pushes over and the menu shows up on click. Though, I haven't coded the exit button on the menu yet because I ran into this problem.

    After clicking the menu button, the body pushes but the menu button doesn't go with it. I have checked everything in my html and css, and still can't figure out why it isn't moving. It's probably some simple oversight. I thought about just 'animating' the menu to move over at the same time but that feels like a cheap workaround to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    -TL;DR- See the 'MENU' at the top? That shouldn't be there. That element should be on the main body, to the right of the actual menu but it isn't pushing over with the body as the actual menu element comes out.
    BTW, sorry it took out my tabs =/

    <!DOCTYPE html>

    <link rel='stylesheet' href='css/Open_Sans'/>
    <link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='css/styles.css'/>

    <script type='text/javascript' src='js/main.js'></script>
    <title>Push Menu Test</title>

    <div class='menu'>
    <div class="menuclosebtn">

    <!-- Menu -->

    .menu a {

    .active {

    I actually just thought of this. Could the 'MENU' actually be stuck on the body like it's supposed to, but the push menu is just going over the top of it? Instead of the body moving over as the push menu comes out and the 'MENU' not moving with the body?

    So I figured out what was wrong. It was something as small and trivial as accidentally adding a " . " into my jQuery selector for body where there shouldn't have been one. Sorry for wasting whoever read this' time. Syntax errors are a b*#$#.

    So, if a mod could please close this that would be great. Sorry again.
