Floating Social Bar no longer floats with 3.8 (9 posts)

    I have two sites that use Floating Social Bar. After upgrading one of them to WP 3.8, it no longer floats. The site still not on 3.8 works fine. Judging from this and a couple other comments I see here, it does not work with 3.8.

    I tested this on Chrome, FF and Safari.

    I have the same problem, and with the new fourteen theme, it also "eats" on the menu... this is a shame, I really loved the plugin...
    Maybe we shall get an upgrade?
    Happy New year to everyone!

    Does the developer check in here? I hate to have to change out the plugin, as it took me a while to choose this one and I really like it.

    Anyone have a suggestion for a replacement plugin that acts similarly? I can't wait on the developer to fix this -- could be today, could be a month from now.

    Same here. The Plugin "works" with WP 3.8, but it no longer floats the social buttons.

    It's a shame that the developer has bailed on this plugin. It was a good one. Oh well.

    I advise all who are thinking of using the plugin to avoid it now.

    In the meantime i got the plugin work on WP 3.8 too.

    Everyone who have problems with Floating Social Bar should check the header.php and footer.php of your theme. It seems that wp_head(); and wp_footer(); is needed for this plugin.

    My install is the very compatible Genesis theme. Assume that has a wp_head(); and wp_footer().
