Sticky Navbar Tutorial

Sticky positioned elements is a combination of relative and fixed positioning. Lets understand what that means. When a element is positioned as sticky with CSS3, a threshold value is also added along it. Initially the element behaves like a normal Relative positioned element. Now as you scroll your webpage, when the page reaches the set threshold the element gets stick to that positioned and so the position behavior changes from relative to fixed.


Lets briefly understand what we are going to develop. Simple as that, we will have a navigation bar fixed at a certain position. Now as your scroll your page, the navbar scrolls as well. Now obviously, we don't want to hide our navbar from user coz' that is the guide to browse across our page. So instead of letting the navbar scroll beyond the browser viewport, we will be sticking the navigation bar to the top. And as you scroll up your contents gets scrolled up while the bar will always be visible at the top. Now lets see what are we going to use for the development
