What is the tutorial about?

Fixing the Elementor sticky columns overlapping issue is the main focus of this tutorial. This common issue can be a headache for many WordPress users, but with the right guidance, it can be resolved easily and efficiently.

Tutorial Steps

  1. Identify the issue:
    The problem arises when using sticky columns on your Elementor website. As you scroll down, the content in the sticky column overlaps with the content below, causing a messy appearance.
  2. Understand the structure:
    The tutorial uses a parent container with three child containers (left, middle, and right). The middle container contains an image, while the left and right containers have text and headers.
  3. Apply the sticky effect:
    In the middle container, go to the advanced tab and apply the motion effect. Set it to ‘sticky top’ and ‘stay in column’.
  4. Create the left container:
    Inside the left container, create a child container with a heading, text editor, and a spacer. The spacer is set to 84 VH to push the contents below.
  5. Apply the sticky effect to the child container:
    Go to the advanced tab of the child container and apply the motion effect. Set it to ‘sticky top’, ‘stay in column’, and an offset of 40.
  6. Add padding to the child container:
    Apply a padding of 350 to the child container. This creates a gap and prevents the text from appearing too quickly after the first set.
  7. Create the right container:
    Duplicate the left container and move it to the right of the middle container. Change the content inside as needed.
  8. Adjust the margins and padding:
    Play around with the top margin of the heading and the bottom padding of the text editor to prevent the text from disappearing too quickly.
