Position an element outside its container

Recommended Posts


I've got three columns in a canvas area. The two on the sides have text boxes in them and the center one has a media box section.

The canvas area sits between another canvas area on the top and the footer on the bottom.

With nothing in the media box, the canvas area in question is about 75px high. Adding the image bumps it up to 150px.


I want to have an image in the centered media box which overlaps the top canvas area and the footer area. 

I've done this on a test, static page (outside of WordPress and DMS), but cannot figure it out within WP/DMS.


This link helped (in my html/css testing page), but I think it's a rabbit trail for my DMS site:



Does anyone have an idea or direction in which I might look?

I solved this by putting the centered image in a canvas area (with Media Box) above another canvas area (with two columns).

Then added this:

/* Media Box in Canvas Area above the other */
#mediaboxu620zir {
	position: relative;
	z-index: 2;

/* Canvas Area with two columns */
.pop {
	position: relative;
	z-index: 1;
	margin-top: -175px;

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
