View Full Version : Static menu/navigation that scrolls with you

I'm not sure if this is css or javascript. I feel as if this could just be z-index or something but just wanted to ask to make sure.

How would I make a menu/navigation that follows as you scroll not a floating menu but for example something like these:

Example 1 (http://www.karminmusic.com/us/home)
Example 2 (http://techcrunch.com/)
Example 3 (http://www.beyonceonline.com/us/home)

Notice how the menu just moves with the scrolling(as if following you). I want that but I am not sure how I would do it.

Okey doke mandnhate, this is actually a fairly easy CSS problem. So the reason it follows you is because of the part in the CSS saying:

position: fixed;

Which basically means that the piece has a fixed position on the page no matter where you scroll. So for example if you had a top bar with an ID of top bar, it'd look like this.

#topbar {
position: fixed;
top: 0px;
