    Hi,

    I have a video background which I would like to put a dotted overlay over.

    My video background is on Section 1 in Cornerstone. So I tried the css from this thread, but didn’t have any luck: https://theme.co/apex/forums/topic/dotted-overlay-2/

    Would love any help getting it to work!

    Cheers!

    Hello There,

    Thanks for providing the url of your site. Have you place the correct path of the dot image png file? You can try this code:

    .home div#x-section-1:before {
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
        left: 0;
        bottom: 0;
        right: 0;
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
        background: url("http://www.clker.com/cliparts/c/c/2/a/1194989366182291164pattern-dots-square-grid-02.svg.med.png");
        content: '';
        display: block;
        z-index: 16000;
    }
    
    .home div#x-section-1 {
        position: relative;
    }

    This is the sample result: http://prntscr.com/dum3nk

    Since you have installed a caching plugin W3 Total Cache, please clear your plugin cache before testing your site. This can cause the changes to not take place on the front end. It will eventually show up when the cache regenerates, but it’s not ideal if you’re looking to see your changes immediately. Caching plugins are best to turn on only when you’ve finished building the site.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello There,

    Your image is not working. You may use this code instead:

    .home div#x-section-1:before {
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
        left: 0;
        bottom: 0;
        right: 0;
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
        background: url("https://d3k5xyayaartr5.cloudfront.net/_assets/pattern-overlays/patterns/black-dots.png");
        content: '';
        display: block;
        z-index: 16000;
    }
    
    .home div#x-section-1 {
        position: relative;
    }
    

    You will need to download the png image and upload it to your S3 bucket without modifying it. Please do not modify the png image.

    This is exactly what I wanted! Thanks so much!

    Is there a way to make the text display on-top of the overlay, so only the video gets the overlay and not the text?

    I’m just using a normal text box in cornerstone for it.

    Hello There,

    Thanks for updating in! To be able to have the dots behind the text and just only above the video layer, please update the code and make use of this code instead:

    .home div#x-section-1 .x-video:before {
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
        left: 0;
        bottom: 0;
        right: 0;
        width: 100%;
        height: 100%;
        background: url("https://d3k5xyayaartr5.cloudfront.net/_assets/pattern-overlays/patterns/black-dots.png");
        content: '';
        display: block;
        z-index: 1;
    }
    
    .home div#x-section-1 .x-container {
        position: relative;
        z-index: 10000;
    }

    We would loved to know if this has work for you. Thank you.
