Are "freeze panes" in the "edit menu" possible so the tabs inserted there do not scroll down with the body text?

On the left side of the body of my web site (on ALL my site's pages and under the "edit menu") I have inserted "tabs" to click on to take you to the different particular web pages of my site you want to navigate to.  Those tabs (about 10 of them) currently are locked in WITH the BODY of the page so that they disappear with the top of the web page as I scroll down my long pages. (It is a resume portfolio.) Can that left "menu" column of tabs be "frozen" so that they are constantly in sight even though you can scroll down each page - as you can optionally create in Excel if you'd like?

Thanks Peter... I read the part about "HTML anchor links" and really like that idea.  I'll add those!!  I also saw this other web site's "FLOATING MENU" there in a particular section of his site and that is exactly what I would like on the left side of each of my site's pages -  so when you scroll the down page the menu stays put and can access it easily without scrolling back to the top of the page....!!  Only problem is... the website the fella had to show "how" to do it was dead.

Hello Mike,

Floating Menus as a pane would need to be checked in regards to responsiveness. Such a menu may not be functional on a mobile device and may be placed "unpredictably" on your mobile pages.

Your best be would be to trial it on a test site before implementing it on your real site.

Thank you, Gop.  Once I figure out how it can be done (I'm not extremely computer literate like many of you - Lol) I will trial it on a test page first...  I did see another fella's site that had that (and seemed to work great), but his link to the instructions for that was dead...

Mike,

The menu used within that reference is now defunct as it has been pulled from the DynamicDrive site. Existing users can do so but new placements aren't available.

Another which you may wish to examine: Omni Slide Menu (not mobile responsive)

and yet other menus offered by CSSMenu. (these menus are mobile responsive)

You may need help with your implementation and  happy to offer assistance if required.

Thanks again, Gop, I will keep that in mind and, will definitely check into these two sites in the morning.  Maybe, if I can't get the floating menu figured out, possibly, something like "buttons" with fold-down tabs (if avail with Yola) linked to my other portfolio pages within my site would also work. Those could be strategically placed throughout each page for multiple and easy access.  This too would make navigating from page to page easier than having to scroll ALL the way to the top of each page to access the menu for page changes...  THANKS!!   Mike

Hi, Peter...  I looked at your site and think that the 'Top of Page' button could be great for my site, too... I really like the idea the button stays stationary so even as the page scrolls up or down - the button is ALWAYS visible!  Can text be inscripted onto the button - to the effect of "click here for top of page menu" or something thereabouts? Thank you for that reply, Peter. I think I saw something in the community here about "anchor links..." It sounds similar, but can you send me the details to the 'Top of page' button?  I would greatly appreciate it!  THANKS, Peter!!

Hi Mike
here are the details, you need to add 2 html widgets to your index page with the code below.I already changed the message for you, if you want to change the image than you will need to change the url, you can change the size with the width= "50" and height by changing the "50" number. to a different value.The 5px is the distance from the top of the page the image shows  (https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS6COuerw3tAqFnSSbUnfxFn8L2FxEJCFustsS)Jv
1st code in an html widget

<p align="right"><a style="position: fixed; top:5px;top:5px;" href="#" title="click here for top of page menu">
<img style="border: none;" src="https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS6COuerw3tAqFnSSbUnfxFn8L2FxEJCFustsSJv7N4JIvo...; width="50" height="50"/></a></p>

Hi Peter...  Tried this out by dropping in two "HTML CODE" widgets into my index page (which I use as my "Home/Profile" page) but as easy as it looks in your description, nothing happened.  I must be doing something wrong... (I use the "Old Text" widget through my website. Shouldn't have anything to do with that ??)  I'll try again later this afternoon...   I did upload this photo into my "file manager;" stuck it into one of my pages, then linked it in to go to the same page it's on...  and it goes back up to top of that page - where the navigation menu is...  BUT, of course, it does not float.

Thanks Peter... I used the "HTML Code" widget, but to no avail... (??) The "old style TEXT widgets" I mentioned I had used (4 years ago, or so and still have) are only for "text" throughout my site and were THE text widgets used when I first built the site back then...  Yola didn't have the "new" style text widgets they use today, but, still make the "old style" available for me because that is what I used then - and still have on my site today... I don't think that should make a difference with that HTML Code widget because it creates its own box when dragged into the body of the site...
