  • Z-Index Not Working Position Absolute

    Z-Index Not Working Position Absolute

    Today I learned about the importance of the natural stacking order. I spent probably an hour scratching my head trying to figure out why my element with the z-index of 500 wasn’t appearing on top of another element with a z-index of -500.

Perhaps the mysterious nature of “cool” is the very thing that makes “cool” so desirable. In other words, “cool’s” state of being is what perpetuates […]

    BluePoint Living

    The Project This project was particularly interested because it tapped into 3 different disciplines.
