After update gradient overlay not working


After the recent update gradient overlays don’t work anymore. The regular overlay works fine though.

Step-by-step reproduction instructions:

  1. Create a section with a background image
  2. Select an overlay color and check that it works as expected
  3. now select a gradient overlay – the overlay should not appear

For me, overlays are working on the backend but not on the front end. It seems to be taking a higher z index inside the section.

Workaround: Applying the z index of 1 to child elements inside the section is working for me.

Hello @yogi,

Can you try setting the position to relative on the block that contains the overlay?


Hi @Louis

Thanks for the revert.

I tried with the position relative but it does not work.

Not an urgent thing as I am able to get the desired result via the workaround.
