As a result of a question related to a website using sticky columns, I realized that the way they accomplished it applies to Avada as well. Instead of focusing on the column, use the sticky attribute of the container, the flex layout features, and z-index settings.

The example below:

  • Use a 100% page template
  • Sticky Menu
    • Set up the menu using a container and a 1/3 column.
    • Set the z-index to 10, position sticky
    • Set the top margin of the column to 32px.
  • Set the next and subsequent containers to have a 2/3 column flex aligned right, with a z-index of 9. You can use background colors if you want to differentiate sections. Here is is for demonstration purposes. Also, section separators can be used.
  • The first “content container” should have a negative top margin to match the height of the menu container and any top padding in your column — in this instance -440px.
  • In the bottom container, set the z-index higher than the stick container and it will move below.
  • Adjusts are necessary for mobile (disable sticky) and tablet.

If you are familiar with z-index, the downside should be fairly obvious. Since we are using a container that is set above the others and spans the width of the page, any time the content moves under the sticky container, interactive elements — hover, tabs, accordions, buttons, hyperlinks, etc. — are blocked.
