Add .navbar-fixed-top and include a .container or .container-fluid to center and pad navbar content.

<nav class="navbar navbar-default navbar-fixed-top">
  <div class="container">
    ...
  </div>
</nav>

Body padding required

The fixed navbar will overlay your other content, unless you add padding to the top of the <body>. Try out your own values or use our snippet below. Tip: By default, the navbar is 50px high.

body { padding-top: 70px; }

Make sure to include this after the core Bootstrap CSS.
