Absolute position image over slider or other content

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I haven't seen this covered in the DMS forums yet, but I am wondering how I would go about positioning an image over a slider or other content on a fixed-width page. I imagine it would be a container positioned absolutely. For example, it seems to be done will on this page with the edges of surrounding boxes overlapping a slider: http://www.mcintyreforcongress.com/  I've found some basic info about doing it with other themes, but as Pagelines itself is a theme I'm a little hesitant to get into the code and mess things up. Is there an easy way to do this?

 

Thanks very much!

Thanks Rob. I ended up inserting this html in a textbox and got the slider to be overlaid with a clear image that had a few graphics in it that would stay static while the slider changed. Worked like a charm!
 
[slider shortcode]
<div style = "position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; z-index:9999;">
<img src="Insert image link here"/>
</div>
