How to Make the Elgg Topbar Always Visible

Several users are wondering how to make the default topbar always on top in Elgg. They want their Elgg site users to have the site tools always available to them. Because of that, on this post, I will explain how to make the Elgg topbar always visible.

This is the normal appearance of the topbar:

By default, if you scroll down your page, the topbar will go away. To make it always visible, we do the following:

1. Connect to your site with an FTP manager. Then go to YourElggSite/views/default/ and open the file css.php 

Once you open that file, look for the Horizontal Elgg Topbar Section:

2. Now, look for the subsection #elgg_topbar, which is just at the beginning of the section. In there, we are going to change the position value from relative to fixed:

3. Save your changes and run upgrade.php (www.yourdomainName.com/upgrade.php) and that is it! Now your topbar will always be visible to your logged in users!

This now concludes how to make the Elgg topbar always visible
