Theme preventing me from editing page content

Hi all,

I have a really strange problem.
For some reason my theme prevents me from editing the main and sidebar content.
I can though edit the footer content.
I also get the edit boxes, and the change color when hovering.
I can though not click them to edit.

No problems with other themes.

Anyone has any idea how this can happen?

hey is your HTML valid? e.g. no div-tags there that shouldn't be there and so on? As this can cause the inline-editing to mess up.

Thanks you for the quick response.

Other then a </span> withoud a <span> generated for the breadcrump (by the cms), and on another page (that does not have the lone </span> as it's not the homepage) an empty ul. No.

At least, not according to the html validator plugin for firefox.
And not as far as i've seen.

Is this a theme you got from the marketplace or one that you are developing?

One way I know a theme can possibly interfere with the CMS controls is if there are some z-axis properties in some of your page elements that prevents block edit dialogs from showing.

Yes, that's it.
I used a z-index of 10 on an element.
And that blocked the editing.
Thank you very much :D.

What is the maximum z-index i can use though?
Because it can be quite handy sometimes.

Doh - I meant to say "z-index" - LOL!

I read somewhere that C5's editing objects are at a z-index of 5, but I haven't found anything official to confirm that.
