All pop-ups, popping "behind" ....

Admin toolbox, attached images, etc., all pop behind the forum, if that makes sense.  Not like a pop-behind ad in a new window ... but behind other elements on the actual page.  I'll attach a screenie, but it's kind of hard to see it, in this case, the admin tools as well as the image pop-up are back there.

Thoughts?

Hey Bob,

Your WP theme most likely has a very greedy z-index. You should be able to fix this by adding a higher z-index rule to your forum popups, although it will require you to add a child theme to preserve the fix. The default z-index of the popup is 10, but if your WP theme's page z-index is say 100 for example, you will need to give the SP popup a z-index of 101 or greater.

First off, download the relevant child theme framework here (free of charge).

Next open the child theme stylesheet (if default theme for example - sp-resources > forum-themes > default-child > styles > default-child.css) and add the rule:

.ui-dialog {
    z-index: 10;
}

So the value of 10 will need to be changed. If you are capable, inspect the popup and increase the z-index until it pops in to view then use the working value in place of the '10' in your child themes stylesheet.

For more info on the child theme process if you need it, read up on Creating a Child Theme.

Hope that helps!

Good stuff.. The child theme is worth having in place anyway, this way if you ever need to add any quick CSS changes it's right there waiting!
