How Do I Make a Section Sticky in Webflow?

Are you wondering how to make a section sticky in Webflow? Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to create a sticky section on your website using Webflow’s powerful features.

What is a Sticky Section?

A sticky section is a web design technique that allows a specific section of your webpage to remain fixed in place while the rest of the content scrolls. This can be useful for creating navigation bars, sidebars, or any other element that you want to stay visible at all times.

Step 1: Create a Section

The first step is to create the section that you want to make sticky. To do this, open your Webflow project and navigate to the desired page. Drag and drop a Section element onto the canvas or insert it inside an existing container.

You can customize the section’s width, height, background color, and other properties according to your design preferences. Feel free to experiment with different styles until you achieve the desired look for your sticky section.

Step 2: Set Positioning

To make the section sticky, we need to adjust its positioning. Select the section by clicking on it in the canvas or in the Elements panel. Then, go to the Styles tab on the right-hand side.

In the Positioning section of the Styles panel, click on Absolute. This will position our section relative to its nearest positioned ancestor. If there are no positioned ancestors, it will be relative to the initial containing block (which is usually the body element).

Step 3: Adjust Top Position

Now that our section is set to absolute positioning, we can specify its position. In the Positioning section of the Styles panel, click on the Top input field and enter a value. This value determines the distance between the top of the section and its nearest positioned ancestor or the initial containing block.

If you want your section to stick to the top of the page, enter a value of 0. If you want it to stick at a specific distance from the top, enter a pixel or percentage value accordingly.

Step 4: Add Z-Index

In some cases, you may need to adjust the z-index property of your sticky section to ensure it appears above other elements on your page. The z-index determines the stacking order of positioned elements with overlapping areas.

In the Positioning section of the Styles panel, click on Z-Index and enter a value. Higher values will place your sticky section above elements with lower z-index values.

Step 5: Test and Refine

Once you have set up your sticky section’s positioning and styling properties, it’s time to test it out! Preview your site in Webflow’s Designer or publish it to see how your sticky section behaves as you scroll through your webpage.

If necessary, make adjustments to the positioning, sizing, or other properties until you achieve the desired effect. Don’t forget to save your changes!


You have successfully created a sticky section in Webflow! Now you can enhance user experience by adding navigation menus, call-to-action buttons, or any other content that remains fixed while visitors explore your website.
