Editing hidden (display:none) content block

I have 2 blocks:
1) large image area
2) smaller content block on top of it that is hidden (by display:none) until the user clicks on it.

When I click "edit page" on the C5 header I cannot edit the content, is there anyway of forcing the display:none block to be seen when in edit mode?

If you only need the block visible during edit mode you can add this to the header part of your theme:

<?php //setup css classes for body tag
$bodyClass = '';
if( $c->isEditMode() )
  $bodyClass .= ' edit-mode';
$uinfo = new User();
if( $uinfo->IsLoggedIn() )
  $bodyClass .= ' active-member';
<body class="<?php print $bodyClass; ?>">

then you will have a class on the body tag you can reference.

hope this helps

Perfect. Thanks jelthure.
One small issue I do have is because the image block underneath is large it is very hard to "edit" (rollover when grey) the smaller area. Is there any way to make the smaller block "selected" so I can edit it when I roll over?

See attached images to help explain.
Thank you

you could try defining an hover state in your css that on hover the image changes the z-index.

I do not appear to be getting a page class with this code. I have copied and pasted this in my header. IS this correct?

Ok I have managed to make this work. I am unsure now how to reference it in my css. Could you please help?

Using jelthure's code example above it would be adding a class to the body tag so in your css you would chain together something like:

.my-hidden-div {
        display: none;
.edit-mode .my-hidden-div {
       display: block;
