How to make 2 divs static even when page content scrolls?

i wondered if anyone could help.

I’m trying to find a tutorial whereby on a page the top div and right div remain in the same position on the screen, and the left div can scroll up and down with the browser scroll.

I found the example below but that is for keeping 1 div in the same position. Anyone know how to apply the same thing to a second div?

Any help would be great.

Regards Jez

Code below, without any jquery/javascript.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<style type="text/css">
.top {
	background: #999;
	height: 100px;
	position: absolute;
	z-index: 5;
	left: 0px;
	top: 0px;
	width: 100%;
.right {
	background: #999;
	height: 100px;
	position: absolute;
	z-index: 5;
	top: 110px;
	width: 30%;
	right: 0px;
.left {
	width: 68%;
	margin-top: 110px;
	background: #CCC;
	min-height: 400px;


<div class="top">keep in same position</div>

<div class="left">content can scroll with the page</div>

<div class="right">keep in same position</div>


You don’t even need JS for this, you can simply apply position: fixed to the selector instead of position: absolute and it will stay in a fixed position on the page.

does that work in all browsers? thanks for the reply though :slight_smile:

It doesn’t work in IE6 but as a fellow web developer i don’t support IE6 anymore unless a client specifies it, there are plenty of reasons why not to support it anymore but the main reason can be found at
