Using the position property is one of many ways you can change the layout and positioning of an element. This property is unique in that it allows elements to be positioned relative to themselves (relative), relative to a parent element (absolute), or relative to the viewport, even when the page is scrolled (fixed).

The flexibility of the position property makes it possible to create very unique web layouts. You can even specify the stacking order of positioned elements that overlap other elements using the z-index property.
Here we’ll cover the values you can set for the position property:

1. Auto
2. Relative
3. Absolute
4. Fixed
