    Fixed position Dropdownbox menu


    Dear all.

    I have a question. I want a fixed position for this drop down box menu

    Can someone help me?

    #nav{
    list-style:none;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-size: 14px;
    font-family: "Trebuchet MS", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    margin-bottom:10px;
    /* Clear floats */
    float:left;
    width: 100%;
    height: 30px;
    margin-left: -30px;
    /* Bring the nav above everything else--uncomment if needed.*/
    position: relative;
    z-index: 5;
    }
    #nav li{
    float:left;
    position: relative;
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    #nav a{
    display:block;
    padding:5px;
    color:#fff;
    background:#5e5838;
    width: 135px;

    }
    #nav a:hover{
    color:#fff;
    background:#322f20;
    }

    /*--- DROPDOWN ---*/
    #nav ul{
    background:#fff; /* Adding a background makes the dropdown work properly in IE7+. Make this as close to your page's background as possible (i.e. white page == white background). */
    background:rgba(255,255,255,0); /* But! Let's make the background fully transparent where we can, we don't actually want to see it if we can help it... */
    list-style:none;
    position: absolute;
    margin-left: -40px;
    left:-9999px; /* Hide off-screen when not needed (this is more accessible than display:none */
    }
    #nav ul li{
    padding-top:1px; /* Introducing a padding between the li and the a give the illusion spaced items */
    float: none;
    }
    #nav ul a{
    white-space:nowrap; /* Stop text wrapping and creating multi-line dropdown items */
    }
    #nav li:hover ul{ /* Display the dropdown on hover */
    left:0; /* Bring back on-screen when needed */
    }
    #nav li:hover a{ /* These create persistent hover states, meaning the top-most link stays 'hovered' even when your cursor has moved down the list. */
    background:#322f20;
    text-decoration: none;
    }
    #nav li:hover ul a{ /* The persistent hover state does however create a global style for links even before they're hovered. Here we undo these effects. */
    text-decoration:none;
    }
    #nav li:hover ul li a:hover{ /* Here we define the most explicit hover states--what happens when you hover each individual link. */
    background:#333;
    }


    Regards,

    William

    Depending on where you want it positioned I would say a good place to start is in #nav

    do

    Code:
    position: absolute;
    top: 0px;
    if you want it fixed, so when scrolling content the menu remains on top do

    Code:
    position: fixed;
    top: 0px;
