  • the z-index has to be increased to float the pop-up over the rest of the info

    you could put this in your custom.css file under your theme to override the 5000 in the style.css

    div.Popup {
      z-index: 10000;

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    I agree with @peregrine. Increasing the z-index of the popup should fix the issue. But I'll add that to the default stylesheet of the plugin as well. Let me know if you can't figure out what file to edit in the plugin.

  • Actually, I would recommend lowering the z-index of that div that's over the popup, as the popup should already have a z-index of 5000. That will be the change I will make to the plugin.

    In custom.css in the plugin design folder, change

    z-index: 9999;


    z-index: 1000;

  • Thank you both my friends. It worked as expected, just needed to clean up my browser cache to see the changes.

    Take care!
