CSS Position Sticky Not Working

In this article, we will see how to use CSS position sticky. And Sticky position didn’t work for some people, let’s see how to fix it. CSS position property is used to position an HTML element in an HTML document. The CSS position property has five types of value and sticky is one of them.

<style type="text/css">

css position sticky not working

  1. In the above code, we have created three <div> tags inside the body section for the header, content, and footer.
  2. In the style tag, we have selected the header div and set the position to “sticky”. If we set the sticky position, we should use the CSS “top” property. So, here we set the “top” property to “0px” which means when the top property is equal to 0px Header will be sticky.
  3. See the above output, The header is sticky even when I drop the scrollbar all the way down. So this value is mostly used in the header menu, navigation menu, etc
