VGUI:Custom Title Screen FAQ
This page hopes to resolve some frequently asked questions regarding customization of the title screen.

It'll now act like a window/frame. You will be able to interact with it but when you open a new window, like the console, you will be able to push it behind this panel.
The best way I've found to prevent this is to always force it to the back by putting this in your panels Think function
vgui::surface()->MovePopupToBack( GetVPanel() );
