Let’s Implement Scrollspy Plugin to Make Sticky Navigation

Let’s download the zip and insert the Javascript file simple-scrollspy.js before closing the header tag or add it at the end of the footer element.

<script src="simple-scrollspy.js"></script>

Next, you need to create a regular navigation menu. Just make sure to place the menu links inside the div with class name menu and ID main-menu.

Each anchor link should have a class menu-item and define the anchor section name class name with # as follows:

<div class="menu" id="main-menu">
    <a class="menu-item active" href="#hero">Home</a>
    <a class="menu-item" href="#section-1">Products</a>
    <a class="menu-item" href="#section-2">Team Members</a>
    <a class="menu-item" href="#section-3">About Us</a>
    <a class="menu-item" href="#section-4">Get in Touch</a>
</div>

Now its time to active the Scrollspy plugin and you need to initialize the Javascript function.

<script>
      window.onload = function () {
        scrollSpy('#main-menu', {
        })
      }
</script>

The pluign comes with few of possible options which allow you to customize it.

<script>
      window.onload = function () {
        scrollSpy('#main-menu', {
          sectionClass: '.scrollspy',
          menuActiveTarget: '.menu-item',
          offset: 100
        })
      }
    </script>

You can customize the styling of the menu bar by editing the style.css To customize the styles when a menu item is active, You need to edit the following class.

.menu-item.active {
 background: #00a8ff;
 color: #ffffff;
}

That’s It.
