So, I made a redstone ladder with slabs. You know typical things. I put an upside down slab, and then put another upside slab down next to it with one y level lower. Yet it doesn't work?
this is a normal behavior. Redstone dust placed on a top slab receives signals from redstone dust one block lower and adjacent, but cannot transmit signals down to that block.

You can use full blocks and spiral them down so there is a continuous signal path. Create a 2x2 free-standing spiral.
