Fixed nav bar problem

Hey everyone, I created a fixed bar in css and it works except when I scroll down all of the other content goes in front of it and not behind. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Sounds like you need to set a z-index on the fixed nav bar. http://css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/40-how-z-index-works/

but like Mike Morales said, if you could post a codepen or jsfiddle it's much easier for others to provide help.

Sure, how do I do that? I'm not very familiar with CodePen
