CSS CSS Foundations The Box Model Positioning Properties


This is what it says Let's change the stack order of our boxes. In the .top rule, add a z-index of 30. I don't know what to do.

do you have css that reads something like .top { something }

If yes then all you need to do is add that z-index property like .top { z-index:30; }

  • What Parag Nair said....
  • The z index is needed for the 3D axis. You know like x, y, and z.
  • X - Horizontal. (Left and right)
  • Y - Vertical. (Up and down)
  • Z - is forward and backward (Not sure what's the correct term)

Thank you to both of you!
