Add Awesome Floating Sharing Bar on Blogger And WordPress Blog

Floating_share_barToday here’s a tutorial on how to add a floating social media bar to a blogger blog. In this widget we have included  Facebook ,like button, Google Plus, Tweet, likedin and also have a StumbleUpon, buttons in the bar and each of them comes with a counter. I have not using any scripts and this widget works purely on CSS and HTML and is fully compatible with all browsers. You can see this sticky widget to left of my blog post. I have made sure to keep the installation process as easy as possible. We made it very easy to install on blogger even wordpress, so you don’t need to edit your blogger html code. Just drop the whole code into a HTML/Javascript gadget. Designing this widget took to much time but after a very hard work we are finally make it 100% working fine..

Customization


Vertical Alignment:
In css section change the value 30% to any other which is your blog requirement for example.
bottom: 25 %;  or bottom: 30%; or bottom: 35%;
To fix the distance even when window is resized, specify the value in px (pixels) instead of %.

Horizontal Alignment
To align the widget more towards the left or right then edit this value.
margin-left: -60px;
Negative value pushes the button to the left of the main blog column, positive value pushes it to the right.
