Hi I am not sure if this is the right way to do it but I am trying to position a div tag back
over the previous div element
This is what I have working
my css that I have used to get this to work looks like
The use of
position: relative only shifts the appearance of the element in the page, but not the actual "space" it takes up on the page. So what you have done made your visual change to show the element
35px higher, but it does not cause other elements to reflow around it. Probably, what you need to add is a
margin-bottom: -35px to get the final effect you want.
EDIT: Added better fiddle example to show reflow with margin.
