    Question Web page on mobile - using position:fixed - please help


    This is my first post here - please be gentle

    I have been assigned to create a webpage for one of our companies products. It is just a basic design - logo on top and content in bottom. I used a div wrapper for the logo and set its position to 'fixed'. There is another div wrapper for the content at the bottom. When i view this page in desktop browsers (firefox, etc) the page works fine - the top part doesn't move and the content scrolls. The top part looks like an unmovable frame. But when i view it in mobile - android browser or iphone safari, the whole page scrolls when you push the page up or down. How do i set just the top part to stay where it is and only the bottom part to move up or down when you move them with your fingers?

    Please Help.

    Welcome to Mobility, me_myself,

    Did you use frames?

    Don'ts of mobile webpage's design:
    • Don't use scripting languages, flash or other complex objects.
    • Don't use frames or other dividers, they take a lot of space and do not add much value, many frames are shown only for 20%, causing a lot of sliders as well.
    • Don't use objects that have a fixed size, like tables.
    • Don't use big pictures, besides the waste of screenspace, they also use a lot of bandwith costing a lot of time and money
    • Don't write lengthy texts, since people on the run generally have a hard time reading them

    Hope this helps.
