Popups Display In Front of Screen Content
Popup Maker displays it’s content in front of the content on the screen. The plugin renders 2 layers within the browser, an ‘overlay’ and a ‘popup' layer. The overlay layer covers the entire screen and appears to surround the popup container. The popup layer appears to the viewer in front of the overlay layer.
The CSS ‘z-index’ property
controls the placement of the overlay and popup layers. Plugin users can manage the z-index values for each popup in the Popup Editor. Go to:
‘Popup Settings’(box) >>
'Display' (tab) >>
'Advanced' (category) >>
‘Popup Z-Index’ (field).

Popup Maker sets the z-index values for the overlay and popup layers very high relative to the content layers located behind them.
By default, the z-index value for the popup layer is 1999999999. Users do not have control over the z-index value for the overlay layer. The high z-index value for the popup places it well in front of the browser content.

Popups and popup themes can also be exported between sites. See the related article below for guidance.
