    Thanks for quick reply :)Screenshot is over here: www. you can just check the same page blog section :)

    1. Hello Kodulehe,

      I just looked into your website and found that the problem is with your social sharing plugin. Deactivated it and here is the solution.

      Use any other social sharing plugin. Here are 10 plugins you can use any.

      I recommend #3 plugin, as it’s too similar to your current plugin. Here is download link:

      Let me know if you still face any issue. :)

        1. My pleasure, Kodulehe.

          Keep visiting my blog, if you ever stuck anywhere, just drop me email. I’d be glad to help you out. :D

    Every time when I move my mouse next to facebook share icon it changes place. Do you know what can cause the problem?


  3. Hi Ammar,

    First, thanks a lot for simplifying the bloggers’ lives technically. I tried installing your floating network bar on my blog but it does not show the right count.

    I have posts on my home page and the bar stays the same (count wise as well) through out the page. Please see it yourself –

    Please help. Also, I replace the code (instead of margin-left, I used left=-10px) bcoz with margin left, it was showing on the centre of the blog.

    Please help.

  4. Very nice piece of article i am using this plugin since a long time but now i have changed to something totally cool , that is a blur and open magical snippet , you can check it out in my page.
    i think this tye of plugins are now old fashioned try totally something new . javascript is a great language to make such plugins.I m making my own plugins any one can contact me.

  5. hi Ammar i’ve placed the code as you said , but it appears at the right side of the post , so how can i show the floating widget to the left on posts pages.

  6. Thanks for creating this! If I create a widget and put this code in there, will the widget and the code show up on my site or does it just become invisible? Do I have to put this widget in each sidebar that I use?

  7. hi AMMAR how do we add pinterest and stumbleupon button on the widget?………. anyway thanks for this great widget. i use it in my SHWP blog, works like a charms. thanks

    1. Hey.

      Yes, we can add these buttons. Just goto these sites get button code and place them in above widget :D

  8. Fahad Jahandad

    Ammar Ali my name is Fahad Jahandad i want some FAVOR
    Can you give me the code of your floating social bar which is on you site exact same


    1. Hi Fahad,
      Currently we are using “Sharebar” plugin for wordpress. You can’t use this plugin in blogspot :(

      Just give this widget a try. It will convert well


  9. not compatible with blogger templates. i replace this with my previous mbt floating button but is not appearing. and about screenshot it is invisible ;)

  10. very god work amar .. floating widget is looking very cool .. “Digg Digg” plugin is done this work very easy on wordpress CMS .

    1. First of all I am AMMAR not “amar” You always do this mistake. And Yes we can, but for a small snippet code you wouldn’t want to depend on plugin. Whereas Plugin also increase number of php calls, hence its an unnecessary load on Server.
