Position fixed related to parent?

Hello all!

I’m having an issue to show a lightbox for dynamic content. As you can see in the image bellow, the overlay has position fixed but it’s still related to the parent.

Actually it’s even worse, it’s really buggy. Try clicking on the images to open the lightbox yourself:

Here is my public share link:

Try recreating the custom lightbox from scratch again. In fact, I would suggest following this tutorial:

Hope this helps


That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen happen in Webflow. It’s absolutely a bug, and it doesn’t have anything to do with your interaction at all.

Fixed positioning is fixed positioning, period. Webflow is doing something to stop it from displaying correctly and that’s the problem.

There is no reason at all that the lightbox should be constrained to the bounds of its parent, given how you have it setup. There is also no reason the page should be freaking out and flashing like that as you move your mouse. It’s almost as if there is some unseen element with a hover interaction on it that’s breaking everything. I spent all this time looking for anything like that and there’s nothing.
