.navigation {
display: block

#main {
background-color: #F3F8FA;
border-top: 1px solid #E3E6E8;
border-bottom: 1px solid #E3E6E8;
overflow: hidden;
.navigation ul {
list-style-type: none;
display: block;
text-align: center

.navigation li,
.navigation li a {
font-size: 13px;
display: inline-block

.navigation li {
list-style-type: none;
position: static;
color: #FFF;
-webkit-transition: border-bottom .25s ease .1s;
-moz-transition: border-bottom .25s ease .1s;
-o-transition: border-bottom .25s ease .1s;
-ms-transition: border-bottom .25s ease .1s;
transition: border-bottom .25s ease .1s;
border-bottom: 2px solid transparent

.navigation li a {
padding: 3px;
outline: 0

@media only screen and (min-width:768px) {
.navigation li {
position: relative;
font-size: 17px;
border-bottom: 5px solid transparent
.navigation li a {
padding: 10px 15px;
font-size: 17px;
font-weight: 400

.navigation li:hover ul.dropdown {
display: block

.navigation li ul.dropdown {
position: absolute;
display: none;
width: 200px;
background: #00695b;
box-shadow: 0 2px 5px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, .26);
padding-top: 0

.navigation li ul.dropdown li {
display: block;
list-style-type: none

.navigation li ul.dropdown li a {
padding: 10px;
font-size: 15px;
color: #fff;
display: block;
border-bottom: 1px solid #005c4d;
font-weight: 400

.navigation li ul.dropdown li:last-child a {
border-bottom: none

.navigation li:first-child:hover a {
border-radius: 3px 0 0 3px

.navigation li ul.dropdown li:hover a {
background: #56b5ae

.user {
background: #FFFFFF

.navigation li ul.dropdown li:first-child:hover a {
border-radius: 0

.navigation li:hover .arrow-down {
border-top: 5px solid #fff
p a{text-decoration:none;font-size:25px;}

$(document).ready(function(e) {
function a() {
e("#main"), e(window).scrollTop() > 150 ? (e("#main").css({
position: "fixed",
width: "100%",
"z-index": "1000",
top: "0px"
})) : (e("#main").css({
position: "relative",
width: "",
top: "auto",
"z-index": "0"
e(window).scroll("slow", a), a()
Here is the jQuery code that fix #main div after scrolling 150px from top. You can change this as you wish. Now we need go our next step.
