Make a link clickable in a container that is positioned absolute

Forums jQueryMake a link clickable in a container that is positioned absolute

I’m creating a gallery with a magnific popup, but I have a hover event on the images that shows an indicator indicating it can be viewed, therefore I had to make it an absolute position. However, it prevents the image from being clickable, thus I can’t access the gallery carousel. To remedy this, I tried z-index: 1, but it didn’t work. This is my code:

 

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('.seller-gallery').magnificPopup({
    delegate: 'a',
    type: 'image',
    tLoading: 'Loading image #%curr%...',
    mainClass: 'mfp-img-mobile',
    gallery: {
      enabled: true,
      navigateByImgClick: true,
      preload: [0, 1] // Will preload 0 - before current, and 1 after the current image
    },
    image: {
      tError: '<a href="%url%">The image #%curr%</a> could not be loaded.',
      titleSrc: function(item) {
        return item.el.attr('title') + '<small>by Marsel Van Oosten</small>';
      }
    }
  });
});
.grid-gallery {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
  gap: 1rem;
}

.gallery-item {
  cursor: pointer;
  position: relative;
  z-index: 1;
}

.gallery-item a {
  pointer-events: all;
}

.gallery-item:hover .gallery-item-info,
.gallery-item:focus .gallery-item-info {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
}

.gallery-item-info {
  display: none;
}

.gallery-item-info span {
  display: inline-block;
}

.img-fluid {
  max-width: 100%;
  height: auto;
}

To fix your issue The.gallery-item-info element that you display above the content should have pointer-events: none. As a result, the event will pass through to the underlying content since it won’t take mouse input.

 

$(document).ready(function() {
  $('.seller-gallery').magnificPopup({
    delegate: 'a',
    type: 'image',
    tLoading: 'Loading image #%curr%...',
    mainClass: 'mfp-img-mobile',
    gallery: {
      enabled: true,
      navigateByImgClick: true,
      preload: [0, 1] // Will preload 0 - before current, and 1 after the current image
    },
    image: {
      tError: '<a href="%url%">The image #%curr%</a> could not be loaded.',
      titleSrc: function(item) {
        return item.el.attr('title') + '<small>by Marsel Van Oosten</small>';
      }
    }
  });
});
.grid-gallery {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: repeat(3, 1fr);
  gap: 1rem;
}

.gallery-item {
  cursor: pointer;
  position: relative;
}

.gallery-item a {
  pointer-events: all;
}

.gallery-item:hover .gallery-item-info,
.gallery-item:focus .gallery-item-info {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  background-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2);
  pointer-events: none;
}

.gallery-item-info {
  display: none;
}

.gallery-item-info span {
  display: inline-block;
}

.img-fluid {
  max-width: 100%;
  height: auto;
}
