[Cartoweb-users] exportLinkIt css

Hi Christoph
you need to set the positon absolut (and top/left/z-index) to the container, 
not the content,
in this case #linkItBox is the container


Hi Oliver

2) works fine. Thanks

1) I still got problems. Even if i specify a absolute position for the 
linkItUrl container i get the linkItBox either on the top left of the page 
or in the bottom left. Following my last try in linkIt.css
#linkItBox {
  width: 820px;
  border: 1px solid #FF9900;
  background-color: #FFCF63;
  padding: 5px;
  z-index: 1000;

#linkItUrl {
  position: absolute;
  top: 50;
  left: 250;
  z-index: 1100;
  width: 800px;
  background-color: #FFFF00;

#linkItBox a {
A side effect ist, that the linkItBox a (Link to close) is not displayed any 

Any more hints for a solution?

Hi Christoph

1) A quick solution is to set an absolut position to the url container (and
specfy a some greater than 10 z-index)
2) specify a fixed width for the url container
