Opacity Interfering with Flex Navbar

Hi, Guys.

I’m doing the Product Landing Page project and I’ve stumbled upon a situation that I can not understand.

My flex nav bar somehow messes up with img elements in an article container.
I’m gonna try to explain as best as I can.

When I’m scrolling down all the page elements are being hidden behind the nav bar. That’s good, that’s how it supposed to be. Except for a couple of Img elements that stay above the nav bar. These img elements are hyperlinked have opacity(0.8) and hover effect (opacity 1, larger image). When I hover above the img elements, they hide behind the nav bar, but in normal state they stay above it. As you can see in the picture I hover over the balloons image and it hid itself behind the nav, while other elements stay above it. Once I removed the opacity from images of normal state things seemed to be fixed. What is happening here?

I’ll add nav’s and containers html & css here

Hey @learn.code.jp,

It looks like you have a problem of an element being in front another element. This can be easily solved using the CSS attribute z-index. It lets you put an element infornt of others. Check out the docs for it:

Anyways, your problem can be easily fixed by giving your navbar a z-index of 9999 (so it will ALWAYS be on top). Here’s an example:

.navbar-element {
     z-index: 9999;

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much. It did help indeed :slight_smile:
