Sticky header goes behind the Images


My aim here is to make a sticky header that sticks to its original place in the window despite scrolling. The thing is whenever I give it position sticky it moves behind the image! or maybe behind its containing div. I replaced position sticky with position fixed and nothing changed. Still is the same thing.

<!DOCTYPE html>

 <link rel="stylesheet" href="main.css">

 <img class="header_logo" src="./youtube_logo.png" alt="youtube's logo" width="5%" height="5%">
 <nav=c lass="navbar">
 <ul class="nav_links">
 <li><a href="#">About Us</a></li>
 <li><a href="#">Contact Us</a></li>
 <li><a href="#">Our Store</a></li>
 <li><a href="#">Know More</a></li>
 <a class="social_buttion" href="#"><button>SOCIAL</button></a>
 <section class="section1">
 <img class="page_logo1" src="./2f606ad14bf9171e5f41b42a01b4441f.jpg">
 <div class="centered">
 <div class="section2">
 <img class="page_logo2" src="./2f606ad14bf9171e5f41b42a01b4441f.jpg">

Hello Dev-Mo,

You need to add this:

header {

z-index: 999;


Any number from 1 to 9999 will be fine

The z-index property specifies the stack order of an element.

An element with greater stack order is always in front of an element with a lower stack order.

Hope this solve your problem.
