I have set up a WFS with zip codes and can query it in mapbender, but the boundary of the selected polygon is not draped on top of all layers in the main map frame. I'm using almost the original settings of the standard "gui" in mapbender223. Can somebody give me a hint?

you need to load the module "wz_jsgraphics.js" at least once into this 
GUI so that it can be called by the gazetteer function. This can be done 
by adding a referenece to the gazetteer
SRC: ../php/mod_wfs_gazetteer.php...)
by entering the path as a property to "Module:"

Additionally you have to check "WZ-Graphics:" when configuring the WFS 

The alternative is to render a transparent PNG with a marker (server 
side rendering). To do that you have to be able to write to a temporary 
directory and Mapbender / PHP must be enabled and allowed to write 
images (the same what you need to create  PDF for server side generated 

I added this to the Wiki:

Please check whether it is intelligible and enhance if necessary (and 
then translate). If you want to do this you need a Wiki account, request 
for it here.

Best, Arnulf.
