A really useful and well done plugin. unfortunately it is not doing well with small screens. There should be an option to disable the button for smartphone screens. There is a CSS syntax error in this line: <div class="wpstudio-panel-container gsw-40"style="background-color: #FFFFFF;color: #00000;">
