    I read this article and thought maybe static would help with what I am trying to do with my html pages side navigation. I got the Navigation link to stay put but the links do not stay with it, especially a problem if you have scrolled down a long page and click in Navigation you can not see the links because they scrolled up with the page. Static worked locally but when I opened it at work it had pushed the content below the side nav which is longer than what you see at the top of the page..

    Element positioning
    This is the code for the css for my side nav.

    /* Begin side nav */
    .sidenav {
        height: 100%;
        width: 0;
        position: absolute ;
        z-index: 1;
        top: 0;
        left: 0;
        background-color: white;
        overflow-x: hidden;
        transition: 0.5s;
        padding-top: 60px;
    .sidenav a {
        padding: 8px 8px 8px 32px;
        display: block;
        transition: 0.3s;
    .sidenav .closebtn {
        position: absolute;
        top: 0;
        right: 25px;
        font-size: 36px;
        margin-left: 50px;
    @media screen and (max-height: 450px) {
        .sidenav {padding-top: 15px;}
        .sidenav a {font-size: 16px;}
    	margin: auto !important;
    #container         {
    	width: 100%;
    	padding: 0px;
    	border: 0px none transparent;
        margin-left: auto;
        margin-right: auto;
    /* end side nav */
