Fixed sidebar menu, content as scrolling sheet? (5 posts)

    Does anyone know of any themes which have fixed sidebar menus and the content as scrolling sheet ... or perhaps how to hack STD themes to allow the content to scroll?

    In case I am not making myself clear ... what I was looking for was a theme where the sidebar stayed where it was top lefthand side of the page when the content was scrolled up or down, a bit like the old Framesets.

    I know how to do this is DHTML but I do not know how to do it in WordPress.

    Almost all WP themes seem to have sidebar menus scroll with the page.

    Hi, the most basic way to do this is by a simple addition to the CSS of whatever the sidebar's container is called:
    #sidebarMenu { position: fixed; }
    Depending on how a given theme creates the sidebar, and where it is in the source code, it may or may not be this simple. Give it a try and see how it behaves in your case. Understanding the difference in the CSS positions is the main thing if you need to adapt it.

    Unfortunately, using the position: fixed string in css does not work and is not all browser compatible.

    I am surprised there isn't an easy fix for this.
