Z-index not working on home page

Go to solution Solved by EFIC,

Hello everyone,

I have a button on the bottom left that's fixed in position to follow the page scrolling. The thing is that some of the text and the images overlap over the button, which I don't want.

I've tried fixing it with the z-index but nothing seems to work. How can I make it be on top of everything?

Hi @EFIC - it looks like it's the fluid engine block's z-index, a parent element, that is set to 1 which is getting in the way of your custom z-index of the child. I'm wondering if maybe in the edit panel, SS gives you the option to change it's native order ("send to front"?)

If not, you can target the direct block: 

.fe-block-yui_3_17_2_1_1689711613120_11603 {
z-index: 999;

Lmk if that works!

Hi @MayaViolet,

While trying your solution I got another idea which worked!

I was trying to input your code in the page's CSS, which didn't work sadly, then I had the idea of putting the button's code in the pages CSS, which worked! I think the page's CSS has a higher z-index than what goes straight on the page.

Thank you for giving me the idea!
