use position:fixed in a style

<div style="background-color:#0F0; display:block; height:30px; position:fixed; top:0px;">stays at the top</div>

this isnt quite a php issue :P

Hi There,
Was this something you were looking for the way the menu moves as you move up and down the page?

Dynamic Drive is a fantastic tool for things like this....

Hope it helps

Here is a good floating menu http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/creating-a-floating-html-menu-using-jquery-and-css/ with demo and tutorial.

I used that script on my website www.bmwvideopost.com with the Social Media icons on the right. And for a customer here:http://www.vm-online.nl/

the jquery is just to cause the animated effect on it.. and to support ancient browsers. the basic position scroll works on all the current browsers (doesnt work in IE6 but then again... if the user uses ie6 them should go die...)

position fixed keeps the div in 1 place... no fluid motions etc. depends on what you want to do i guess. personaly i prefer the menu to stay in 1 place rather than "bounce" when i scroll
