Hi all,

I have a bootstrap header as follows;

<header>
            <div class="container">
                <div class="row">
                    <div class="col-sm-3 ">
                        <hgroup class="logo-circle">
                            <h1>
                                <a href="@Url.Action("Index", "Home")"><img src="~/Content/images/bridge-direct-logo-circle.png" /></a>
                            </h1>
                        </hgroup>
                    </div>
                    <div class="col-sm-9">
                        <div class="row">
                            <nav class="col-sm-12 text-right">
                                <a class="largeLink" href="mailto:contact@bridge-direct.uk">
                                    <i class="fa fa-envelope color"></i>   <span class="hidden-xs">contact@bridge-direct.uk</span>
                                </a>
                                  
                                <a class="largeLink" href="tel:02031264969">
                                    <i class="fa fa-phone color"></i>   020 3126 4969
                                </a>
                            </nav>
                            <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle" data-toggle="collapse" data-target=".navbar-collapse">
                                <span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span>
                                <span class="icon-bar"></span>
                                <span class="icon-bar"></span>
                                <span class="icon-bar"></span>
                            </button>
                        </div>

                                <nav class="navy collapse navbar-collapse navbar-right">
                                    <ul>
                                        <li>
                                            <a href="@Url.Action("Contact", "Home")" class="@Html.ActiveClass("Contact", "Home")">Contact Us</a>
                                        </li>
                                        <li>
                                            <a href="@Url.Action("Broker", "Home")" class="@Html.ActiveClass("Broker", "Home")">Broker Zone</a>
                                        </li>
                                        <li>
                                            <a href="@Url.Action("Index", "Home")#about-section" class="@Html.ActiveClass("About", "Home")">About Us</a>
                                        </li>
                                        <li>
                                            <a href="@Url.Action("Index", "Home")" class="@Html.ActiveClass("Index", "Home")">Home</a>
                                        </li>
                                    </ul>
                                </nav>

                    </div>

                </div>
            </div>
        </header>

Open in new window


the site is running here dev.mfitonline.co.uk.

Now on screen sizes where the nav bar collapse button appears (i.e. on mobiles) I want to have the logo image appear above the callapsable menu, as it overhangs slightly.

Now if I adjust the z-index on the col-sm-3 this does bring it above, but it then cannot click the nav button. However if I apply it to the acutal image because its contained in the row its sitting behind it?

Any ideas on how I can get around this please?

There is no solution without re-locating or re-sizing the logo or the nav.  When the logo is on top of nav the container covers nav and even though you can see it the mouse Cannot see it as the click is absorbed by the logo container.

One of the problems with bootstrap is that predefined common layout is not very smart. So you will need to play with dimension and positioning.
