CSS CSS Layout Basics Positioning Page Content How Z-index Works

Top of the page is still covered by the (fixed-position) header

When i launch the workspace of this video, the web page is different than that of the video. the fixed position header still covers the top of the page and when i give a top padding to the body, this padding also applies to the header. why is this? https://s32.postimg.org/8ymj1pcut/Screen_Shot_2016_06_27_at_4_04_29_PM.png

adding top: 0 ; solved the issue, is this the ideal way?

Hi Naram,

Congrats for figuring out the answer, yep - you need to provide some co-ordinates to tell the browser where to render the fixed position item, this for instance could be top or bottom coordinates.
