jQuery Fixed WidgetBar for Wordpress

Released 4 years ago , Last update 4 years ago

A WordPress plugin for adding a fixed toolbar to your site or blog for fixed navigation, advertising space on other relevant content.

Add a fixed sidebar to your Wordpress site

This plugin will add a fixed toolbar for your site and 2 new menus in the administration area to manage it. You can then add widgets in the sidebars and they automatically appear on the toolbar as buttons which you click to show the widget's content (similar to a menu). The toolbar will be positioned on the bottom of your site's screen and will be fixed there while you scroll.

The plugin works with any template and any wordpress configuration.

Features

  1. Creates a toolbar which will be fixed positioned at the bottom of your screen.
  2. Adds two sidebars on your administration area. One is for widgets who are displayed as button and the other for widgets who are displayed as is.
  3. The toolbar is themed using jquery ui themes.
  4. List of default themes to choose from.
  5. You can add any widget on the toolbar. The widget's title is a button on the toolbar and the widget itself appears when you click its button.

See the demo for a demonstration of how it works in practice.

    Hello, Thanks for the interest! If you want to add a sidebar on your site, then yes, this is the plugin you need. You can add any widget on it to be displayed. So, you must have the text resizer as a widget to add it to this sidebar. As for the position it is purely controlled by css. It uses jquery themes, so yes, it works regardless what theme you have. If you want tell me the site you need to add it to to understand better what you need. Thanks again for the interest!

    Hi there, If i understand it correctly it will place a extra bar to the left or right (Positioned by css) I need on the left or right a bar on every page for people to make the text bigger for example. It should be placed next to the widgetbar and page so outside the content part.. Is this it?? Works it with every theme?
