Lightbox close button under the sticky menu


I browsed through similar posts, but I’m not sure if they completely apply to my case.

Our website has a sticky menu, but it only shows when you scroll up.

The Problem:

In our portfolio page, we have included lightboxes for different projects. When the menu is not visible, everything works fine. However, if you scroll up, and click on an image while the menu is visible, you can’t exit the lightbox. You can only click on the menu items.

I assume this has something to do with the z-index, however, I’m not a developer myself, and don’t want to risk messing something up.

I appreciate any advice that you could provide.


Yes, the z-index of your nav is 99999.
Lightboxes seem to be about 2000.



Try changing this to 999 and see if it solves your problem.
