How to make a sticky section in Divi

In this tutorial we will be covering how you can create a sticky section. This section will stick at the top when scrolling down. For this we will be using a free plugin called Sticky Menu (or Anything!) on Scroll. You will be learning how to create a section and how to setup the plugin.

You can see a live demo here.

Step by step tutorial

Step 1
In the first step I create a section that is going to be sticky. You can create anything youlike in the demo I just made a section with a 3/4 – 1/4 row and placed a text module and a button module. The most important thing is that you need to add a CSS ID in the advanced tab. You can name it anything you like. I named mine stickybar

Step 2
Go to plugins > add new

Search for Sticky Menu (or Anything!) on Scroll and install/activate the plugin.

Then go to Settings > Sticky Menu (or Anything!) on Scroll

In the Sticky Element field fill in the class name you gave your section. In my case #stickybar

Important: You have to add # in front of your name here

In the Space between top of page and sticky element: (optional) field I fill in 95. I use a fixed navigation and I want the stickybar underneath it. So I have to add the height here of my navigation. In my case this is 95px but if you use different navigation size it can be another number. You can trial and error the size until you are happy or use a tool like Google inspector. In case you navigation is not sticky then you can leave this field blank.

In the Do not stick element when screen smaller than: (optional) field I fill in 981 which means that this section will only stick for desktops.

Then go to the advanced settings tab and fill in the Z-index: (optional) field 999999

Click on Save settings

      Yes, unfortunately this plugin only works for one element on a page.

      You can do it probably with CSS. Unfortunately, I don’t have a tutorial for that.
