The fixed position of the bootstrap's navbar is on top of admin_menu, what workaround could solve this?

Well the whole admin menu doesn't seem to play nice with jquery 1.7+
Also the fixed top bar is going away so that problem is going to solve itself.

There is solution for this in css file

.navbar-fixed-top {
position: fixed;
top: 0;
right: 0;
left: 0;
z-index: 500; // to show the menu sequence

Admin module seems to work after installation of jQuery Update (with jQuery v 1.7.1 enabled)
and the code below added in themes/twitter_bootstrap/includes/modules/ to prevent submenus being expended.


function twitter_bootstrap_menu_link__management(array $variables) {
    return theme_menu_link($variables);

function twitter_bootstrap_menu_link__navigation(array $variables) {
    return theme_menu_link($variables);

This code might be not sufficient if the admin toolbar includes other menus than 'management' and 'navigation'.

I simply added:

body.admin-menu .navbar-fixed-top {
  top: 32px;
  z-index: 499;

This is for the taller admin menu style. If you're using the shorter style you will need to adjust it a little.

The z-index was changed to prevent the menu from covering the admin overlay.

Thanks siilak and eusonic, both solutions works

Thanks @eusonic, this works and could be committed? Or what does "Also the fixed top bar is going away so that problem is going to solve itself." mean?

Almost two years and the fixed navbar is still around. Any plans to remove it, so admin menu can work? :)

It works just fine in the 2.x branch.

Issue summary: View changes

Here's the way I do it with adminimal_admin_menu 1.x-dev for all types of navbar (default, static top, fixed top / bottom). I try to keep the same spacing between the navbar and admin_menu (20px) for all screen sizes. Also, with a fixed top navbar, when adminimal_admin_menu switches to slicknav it gets displayed below the navbar, but this is consistent with the navbar being always fixed on top of the screen (normal admin_menu is still on top on bigger screens)

@media screen and (max-width: 1024px) {
  body.adminimal-menu .navbar-fixed-top {
    top: 0px;
  body.adminimal-menu.navbar-is-fixed-top {
    padding-top: 50px !important;
  body.adminimal-menu .navbar-static-top {
    margin-top: 20px;
  body.adminimal-menu .slicknav_menu {
    margin-bottom: 20px;
@media screen and (min-width: 1024px) {
  body.adminimal-menu {
    margin-top: 28px !important;
  body.adminimal-menu .navbar.container {
    margin-top: 48px;
  body.adminimal-menu .navbar-static-top {
    margin-top: 48px !important;
  body.adminimal-menu.navbar-is-fixed-top {
    padding-top: 64px !important;
  body.adminimal-menu .navbar-is-fixed-top {
    margin-top: 0px !important;
    margin-bottom: 47px !important;

adminimal_admin_menu 1.x-dev has a larger font size and is responsive (breakpoint at 1024px), I prefer it over 'vanilla' admin_menu.
