Bootstrap sticky content (affix) is a plugin which allows elements to be locked in a particular area of the page. It is often used in navigation menus.

Click on the button below to see an example of StickyContent.

Note: The original Bootstrap Affix plugin has been dropped. MDB provides you an alternative e — the Sticky Content plugin.


Step 1: Add a class .sticky to the chosen element.


        <div class="sticky">
          <h2>Sticky Element</h2>
          <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam interdum luctus eros sed pretium. Proin
            turpis odio, viverra et tincidunt nec, tincidunt sed nisl.</p>


Step 2: Use the following script to set the desired values.

The stopper is an element which stop the StickyContent.

        $(function () {
            topSpacing: 90,
            zIndex: 2,
            stopper: "#YourStopperId"


Note: If no stopper id or class is provided, by default script uses 'sticky-stopper'. You can also use number values for pixel points on the y-axis.

Tip: Use the zIndex option if you need to use multiple sticky elements while scrolling the page.

Change class


        stickyClass: ['navbar-dark', 'mdb-color'],


Hide on mobile

The sticky element should be used on small screens. To hide the sticky element you can use the minWidth option:


      $(function () {
          minWidth: 768,
