CSS - Elevate image over div area (z-index?)

Hi I'm trying to render an image in my footer to look like this:

Need right image to sit above the footer div and into page's content.
I've tried setting different z-index values for the various divs and decreasing margin-top for the image with no success. Any help appreciated.

I wonder if your problem is that you placed the image inside the div that contains the footer.  You should try positioning placing it so that it's not inside the footer container.  Trying to see if I can get more time to play with it myself, but about to leave the office.

Trenton is right that you would avoid a lot of headaches if you put it outside of the footer div, but I'd like to find a way to do it without reorganizing your HTML. I'll take a closer look after work.

I'm assuming you want the footer to be full width, correct?

Thanks everyone. Yes that's my next issue I'm having trouble figuring out -  how to make my footer and menu full browser width while keeping the page content boxed at 1200px wide.

I'll consider that in my answer. I can see right off the bat that you need to set the max-width on divs inside of the wrapper, instead of the other way around.

If you inspect the #wrapper div and turn off the max-width property you will see that everything (except pieces of the header and menu) gets 100% width. You would then set the internal divs like #main to have the max-width and give it a margin: 0 auto; to center it.

To start, I've got the page full width with the following code:

#wrapper {
  max-width: none !important;
  width: 100%;
}
.header-wrapper {
  width: 100%;
}
#header {
  padding-left: 0;
  padding-right: 0;
  /* Background image needs to extend to where the edge converges with the nav */
  background: transparent url(http://7pwc.moshpitdigital.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/header-bg-3.jpg) top center no-repeat;
}
.header-v5 #small-nav {
  padding: 0 0;
}
#small-nav .avada-row {
  /* max-width: 1100px; */
  max-width: none;
}

Open in new window


It's not quite there yet, but that at least formats your header and wrapper to be full width, and your footer inherits the full width too. However, I couldn't get your tile pattern to show through the header background. Try applying the background image to different containers, or perhaps a container in the header is displaying with a white background and inheriting some padding/margin.

I left a note about the header background image in there for you too. Working on the position of the Doc's image now. Would you like it positioned to the absolute bottom of the window, or limit it to a maximum width?

Thanks a ton Morgan, can't thank you enough!! For now I think positioned absolute to the bottom is what my designer is looking for.

Thanks Doug! However, I feel I must answer the original question, so here goes:

.footer-area {
  padding-top: 0;
  padding-bottom: 0;
  overflow: visible;
}
.footer-4 > img {
  position: absolute;
  bottom: -200px;
  right: 0;
  z-index: 9999;
}

Open in new window


You might have to adjust some of the numbers, but I've got it working with the stylish plugin.


Cheers from Pismo Beach!
