Z-index / can't edit block9 users found helpful
This is more a remark rather a question, but it took me some time to figure it out so I thought that it is worth making a note for future reference.
I have built a template with various div and some of them had a z-index greater than 5. Don't do this as it is then impossible to edit the blocks which are "hidden" by these. Choosing z-index inferior to 5 solves this issue.
I haven't reported it as a bug since I am not sure if this is a "feature" or not. From my perspective, it would be good to have the edit links with a z-index of 99.
the width of the WYSIWYG editor has nothing to do with the actual theme. You can adjust the width by going to Dashboard> SiteWide Settings> and then look for the WYSIWYG dialogue box. you can set a custom width for the box.
hope that helps.
I do not understand why the ccm-highlighter div has been given such a low z-index. Surely it should be much, much higher - if not as high as possible. To make an assumption that a z-index of 5 is high enough seems either misguided or presumptious. However, perhaps there is a good reason for this value, I am willing to stand corrected.
Thanks so much for the solution - AWESOME!
I used a workaround using the Developer Tools in Chrome. Once you've got the Developer Tools open you can click on the css that has the z-index reference above 5 in it and change it to something lower. This then makes whatever you are trying to edit editable! This method means that the original theme css z-index is unaffected and can be whatever you want as the Developer Tools z-index change is only temporary.
It worked for me anyway.
