Sticky is a jQuery plugin designed to create sticky elements on your web page. Sticky elements are objects that remain fixed in position when scrolling, ensuring that they are always visible on the screen. This feature is commonly used for navigation bars, sidebars, or other content that should remain accessible as users scroll down the page.


  1. Easy Setup: Implement sticky elements with minimal configuration.
  2. Top and Bottom Limits: Define limits for sticky elements based on scrolling.
  3. Smooth Transitions: Add smooth transitions for sticky element activation and deactivation.
  4. Cross-browser Compatibility: Ensures consistent behavior across different web browsers.


  • Enhanced Navigation: Keeps important navigation elements visible at all times.
  • User-Friendly: Provides a seamless scrolling experience for users.
  • Customizable: Allows you to tailor the sticky behavior to your specific needs.
  • Improved UX: Reduces the need for users to scroll back to access important content.
