Describe your issue in detail here.

Hi, I’m trying to do a background overlay on top of my body but when i set the position to fixed, my page stops scrolling and i can’t move below. When i remove the fixed positioning, the overlay is only on some part of my page that is if i set the height to 100vh. When i scroll, the overlay stops.

Your code so far

Link to the challenge:

you can do what you are doing, but if you give fixed positioning to a div that contains the rest of your page, it will not scroll. Maybe you are trying to do something too complex for this, but you could use the overflow property with fixed, or you could make your body purple and use some padding to have white on the borders
