    just had a few minutes to load the plugin but it is still not clear how to use this in a custom sidebar that does not use the standard WP widgets.

    We have used other plugins in the sidebars by executing

    echo do_shortcode.....

    how do we call this plugin in sidebars?

    You need to find html id of the element which you want to fix.
    Then found, go to plugin settings page. Enter id in the Custom IDs field.

    We tried it with the right sidebar and it seems to work but there are problems.

    The right sidebar is fixed but it shifts to the left by about 80-100px onto the content area. The left sidebar does not move at all when we place its id in the settings.

    Looks like markup issues...

    carlytx, I saw your site.

    What can I say... Your current markup is incompatible for my plugin (
    You are using absolute positioning for right sidebar - that is a very bad choice... especially when it switches to fix positioning.

    A advise your to change your markup. You have a lot of bad things there!

    just changed the right sidebar to relative and it now seems to work to some degree but still problems with positioning. We will play around with it and see if we can get it to work. thanks for your help.

    carlytx, i think to apply fix positioning to the whole sidebar is not a good idea.
    You need a good wrapper around you fixed content.
    Sidebar is a good wrapper. Do not fix it. Try to fix elements inside the sidebar.

    thanks we will try it but it may be easier on another site we have that has a different theme that will support this plugin better.
