Z-Index of #sidebar

Hey gang, I'm trying to adjust the z-index of the campaign's sidebar. You can see an example of my issue, by mousing over the scrap of parchment on the front page (desktop screen only).

TIA,

    Hey Bort,

    Wow, I don't know what to tell you about that! I tried setting the z-index of the sidebar div to 9999 and the z-index of the parchment blockquote to 1, but that didn't work. Though the following thought just occured to me, would you be able to either change the tag containing the parchment to a div and then set it's z-index attribute? That or wrap it in a div? Don't remember if z-index works on blockquotes.

    Well the problem actually isn't on the blockquote side, its on the sidebar side.

    It can't be controlled by the z-index tag, and I can't figure out why. There are several things that can "grow", that still end up under the sidebar, regardless of the z-index I apply to both the grown object and the sidebar.

    Wonder if OP has some code that is disabling the z-index for the sidebar?

    I'm sure they don't, my understanding of how to make z-index work correctly is essentially non-existant.

    Besides, I've seen it done on other campaigns, I just can't remember which or I would go look at the code again!

    Sorry about that Bort,

    I'll keep an eye out and if I see anything I'll be sure to let you know.

    I am assuming that you want this

    followed by this when you hover?

    If that is the case I simply changed the z index of .sidebar-party-members .game-master:hover to 5

    No sir, that's deliberate (trying hard to make the site not look blocky and square).

    Rather here so that expansion boxes I'm working on are above the sidebar.

    The issue is you are trying to change the z-index of the blockquote. But that only changes it's position in respect to other elements on the main-content-container, but the main content containers z index is not changed with respect the the sidebar. So what you really want to do is modify the z-index of the main-content-container.

     

    .campaign-public-layout .main-content-container {

        opacity: 0;

        transform: scale(0);

        transform-origin: top;

        filter: blur(7px) sepia(100%);

        animation: flyin .7s ease forwards;

            animation-delay: 0s;

        animation-delay: .25s;

        z-index: 3;

    }

    Oh you beautiful bastard! I'd been in and out of the bq and sidebar, and not gotten anywhere. Like John said, I'd never have thought to mess with z-index on main-content.

    THANK YOU!
