Q2W3 Fixed Widget for WordPress

Descrizione

Use the fixed widget plugin to create sticky widgets that stay in the visible screen area when the page is scrolled up or down.

Sticky widgets are perceived much better by your visitors than unfixed widgets and therefore have a significantly higher click-through rate. Therefore, this option is especially useful for ads or other items that visitors want to interact with.

The recommended solution for integrating ads in WordPress is the free ad management plugin Advanced Ads.

Compatibility

The plugin is not working with all themes! Theme requirements:

  • jQuery 1.7 is required, jQuery 1.8.3 (or later) is recommended.
  • No JavaScript errors caused by other plugins and scripts.
  • wp_head() and wp_footer() functions in header.php and footer.php files.
  • Widgets must have an ID attribute.

In some themes fixed widgets „jump“ during scrolling, etc. Some CSS changes at your theme will be required in this case.

Installazione

  1. Follow the standard WordPress plugin installation procedure

  4. Fine tune plugin parameters on Appearance -> Fixed Widget Options page

FAQ

Why is the Fixed Widget plugin not working?

There are several reasons:

  1. Javascript errors on the page. Commonly caused by buggy plugins. Check javascript console of your browser. If you find errors, try to locate and fix its source.
  2. No wp_head() and wp_footer() functions in template. Check header.php and footer.php files of your active theme.
  3. Conflicts with other plugins and scripts
  4. CSS incompatibility
Is it possible to fix multiple widgets?

Yes, it is possible to fix more than one widget even if they are located in different sidebars.

Why is the plugin not working in Chrome (and other Webkit based browsers)?

Check your CSS files for these two instructions:
-webkit-backface-visibility:hidden;
-webkit-transform: translate3d(0,0,0);

If found, disable them and see the result.

How to prevent overlapping with the footer?

Go to WP admin area, Appearance -> Fixed Widget Options. Here you can define the top and bottom margins. Set bottom margin value >= footer height. Check the result, please.
If your footer height is changing from page to page it is better to use the Stop ID option. Here you need to provide the HTML tag ID. The position of that HTML element will determine the margin bottom value. For example, let’s take the Twenty Sixteen default theme. The theme’s footer container has an id=”colophon”. In the Stop ID option I need to enter just the colophon, without any other symbols!

How to disable the plugin on mobile devices?

There are two options: Disable Width and Disable Height. They works the same way. If the browser window width/height is less then or equals specified value, the plugin is disabled. You can also use the visitor conditions of Advanced Ads to target specific user groups.
