    Hi guys!

    Okay I have a little issue here. I am thinking of having a floating widget on my sidebar. The widget will be the last one though and not the whole sidebar.

    I tried Q2W3 plugin and it isn’t working. Suspecting it could by my W3TC which is doing some issue with it. Now, my question is that if I want to make that one widget to float, is there any code i could use?

    Please advise and thank you.

    What content are you wanting to show in your floating widget (I assume you mean it stays visible on the page, regardless of scroll?). If it’s social sharing-related, there are some plugins out there that’ll do that. Generally speaking, I’m thinking you’ll want to go outside of your actual sidebar widget so you can style it as a separate component.

    Not sure about conflicts with your caching plugin…

    Cheers,
    Carrie

    Hey!

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am actually planning to make my sidebar widget (sign up form) to float. However not sure how or what code to use.

    Any advise?

    Thanks.

    Hmm, I don’t. I’d look for a signup form plugin that does it. :)

    Hmm thanks for the reply.

    Been trying to use q2w3 plugin but doesn’t work.

    That’s why I thought of maybe…maybe another plugin or method can work.

    Hehe :)

    Have you tried this plugin for creating floating sidebars?
