How Do I Fix a Navbar on Webflow?

In this tutorial, we will learn how to fix a navbar on Webflow. The navbar is an essential component of any website as it provides easy navigation for the users. By fixing the navbar, we ensure that it remains visible to the users even when they scroll down the page.

Step 1: Create a Navbar

To start, we need to create a navbar in Webflow. Open your project in Webflow and navigate to the desired page where you want to add the fixed navbar. Drag and drop a Navbar component from the Elements panel onto your page.

Tip: Make sure to place the Navbar at the top of your page, preferably inside a section or container element.

Step 2: Customize the Navbar

Once you’ve added the Navbar component, you can customize its appearance and layout according to your design preferences. Use the Navbar settings panel on the right-hand side of the Webflow interface to make changes.

Tip: You can set a background color, adjust text alignment, add a logo or brand name, and style links within your navbar using this panel.

Step 3: Fixing the Navbar

To fix the navbar, we need to apply some custom CSS code. Select your Navbar component and click on Add Field. Choose Add Custom Code.

Note: If you are not familiar with CSS code or prefer not to write it yourself, you can use Webflow’s built-in interactions feature for fixing the navbar. However, for more control and customization options, we recommend using CSS code.

Option 1: Using CSS Code

Inside the Custom Code field, add the following CSS code:

.fixed-nav {
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  width: 100%;
  z-index: 9999;

Explanation: This CSS code sets the position of the navbar to fixed, which fixes it at the top of the viewport. The top property ensures that it stays at the top, and the width property sets it to occupy the full width of its container. The z-index property ensures that the navbar remains on top of other elements.

Option 2: Using Webflow Interactions

If you prefer using Webflow interactions, select your Navbar component and click on Add Interaction. Choose While scrolling in view.

In the interactions panel, set an initial appearance for your navbar (e.g., transparent background). Then, create a new step and change its appearance to make it fixed (e., solid background).

Step 4: Test and Publish

To see if your fixed navbar works correctly, preview your website in Webflow’s preview mode or publish it to a temporary domain. Test scrolling down and ensure that your navbar remains fixed at the top.

Note: It’s crucial to test your website on different devices and screen sizes to ensure responsiveness. Adjustments may be necessary depending on your design requirements.


You have successfully learned how to fix a navbar on Webflow. Now you can enhance user experience by providing easy navigation that stays visible even as they scroll through your website.

Tip: Don’t forget to save your progress and regularly update your website to keep it optimized and secure.
