Bring RevSlider navigation to the front

Recommended Posts

andersen3

Hi,
 
I am trying to figure out the new DMS before I activate it on my real website, but have run into a small problem.

I am in other words currently running DMS on a local server.
 
Anyhow, I have made some small changes to my local site using custom CSS-coding. One of the things I have done is that I have placed my branding section, navigation and a text box on top of the revslider to give that part of my site a nice transparent effect. Please see this photo for reference:

Now, I had to use custom CSS-coding to place the revslider underneath all the other elements in the header section, which worked. However, the slider controls/navigation still seem to be placed behind or underneath the actual slider, making it impossible to actually use the controls since they are invisible.
 
I suspect my custom CSS coding to be the problem:

.revslider-container {
width: 100% !important;
position: relative;
padding: 0;
max-height: 724px !important;
min-height: 724px !important;
overflow: visible;
margin-top: -161px;
z-index: -2;
}

Any idea how I get the slider controls to appear on top of the revslider again, yet the revslider is layered underneath the rest of my header elements?

 

Thanks!

Hi Christian,

 

As you doubtlessly know, each element has its own CSS code.  If you're using tools like Chrome Inspection or Firebug for Firefox, you should be able to find the right element, and likely will need to set a different z-index for the controls.

 

I hope this helps.

Thanks a lot Rob. I tried setting a different z-index for the controls on the slider, but with no success. I can't seem to place the revslider underneath my textbox, branding and navigation without the slider controls disappearing. 

 

Any idea how I should proceed to get this issue fixed?

 

Thanks!

When you say "underneath" do you mean as a background?  It is not a background slider. It is a full-width slider.

No, not as a background. The slider is functioning the way I want it - as a fullwidth slider. I can however not get the controls/slider arrows to appear on top of the actual slider images. It seems like they are layered below the Revslider images. For better understanding, please have a look at my website here: www.creativefuturemag.com

 

Thanks

HI,

 

z-index only works on positioned elements.

 

http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_pos_z-index.asp

Therefore, if you have't used this, then using z-index is pointless.

Please bear in mind that we do not provide support to user created custom code. I would do as Rob suggested and use Chromes web dev tools.

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.
