Fixed navigation bar under a header section

Hi all,

i want a navigation bar for a single page website which is positioned under my header section. I want that, if i scroll down, my navigation will be fixed at the top of my browser window. But it should only be fixed if i scroll down. How could i handle this?

Hi Norman, I'm just curious as to why you want a navbar for a single page site? Is it a very long page and you wish to be able to jump from section to section?

Giving the nav element position: fixed; in your CSS should do it.

You could do it like this:

<div class="footer">
  <!-- footer content here -->
.footer {
  position: fixed;
  bottom: 0;

I have never personally done this, but I do know you need to use JavaScript or JQuery to accomplish this.

Yes, it's a large site. That's because I need a navbar :)
