    Hi @paprikabox,

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    Do you mean sticky sidebars as floating sidebar?

    Could you please tell me exactly what you want to achieve using sticky sidebars so that i can help you to achieve it?

    Kind Regards,

    Hi @paprikabox,

    Hope you're well today! We haven't heard back from you but I suspect you're looking to have a floating widget, which Custom Sidebars wouldn't provide itself.

    Perhaps the following plugin will sort that for you though!

    Hope you have a fantastic day! :)

    Cheers,
    David

    Hi,
    I've tried Q2W3-fixed-widget but it doesn't work for me : my widget search-bar is modified and some widgets move and overlap.
    May be, It would be better to have a floating sidebar and not floating widgets.
    Isn't it possible to get floating some sidebars ceated with your plugin ? May be un piece of code to be inserted somewhere ?
    Thanks.
    Cheers

    Hi @paprikabox,

    To make the sidebar as a floating sidebar on the page http://www.ludikecole.fr/la-malle-a-jeux-cp-ce1 just add the following CSS code in the style.css file of your child theme or add it in your site using the following plugin.

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-custom-css

    body.page #sidebar {
        position: fixed;
        top: 45%;
        right: 10%;
    }

    Hi,
    Your solution works, thanks.
    But is it possible to define the floating position of the sidebar regard to the Container and not the page to avoid that it overtakes on the header or the footer whith some browsers ?
    Thanks.

    Hi @paprikabox,

    I didn't find overtaking it on my browser.

    Could you please share me the screenshot of it so that i can fix it?

    For screenshots, you can simply provide a link to an image through Google Drive, Dropbox, screencast.com, http://imgur.com/ or other image service. :)

    You can also use the solution posted in the following reply to develop more dynamic scrolling effect.

    Hi,
    I think that you can see overtaking on your browser with another page :

    Hi @paprikabox,

    Thanks for sharing the page link.

    I can see it's overlapping with the footer but you can fix this by using the solution posted on the following links.

    I don't understand the solution posted on this links. Sorry.
    But, finaly, I've fixed the problem with

    body.page #sidebar {
        position: fixed;
        top: 42%;
        right: 10%;
    }

    instead of

    body.page #sidebar {
        position: fixed;
        top: 45%;
        right: 10%;
    }

    Thanks.
    Best regards.

    Hi @paprikabox,

    Awesome, really glad that sorted it for you then! Just needed a slight value adjustment for the top position, then?

    Good to see that worked for you and thanks for letting us know. :)

    Cheers!

    I am interested that you suggest using the Q2W3 Fixed Widget plugin with Custom Sidebars, because when I tried it all my Custom Sidebars stopped showing! I just wanted to have a few Custom Sidebars be fixed, to help with the navigation of long pages.

    If your experience is that Q2W3 works with Custom Sidebars, is there something specific I should know about that might be preventing it working? I looked in the Q2W3 support, but I don't see this issue there.

    It seems like such a simple thing, wanting a custom floating sidebar, but finding a solution just isn't happening :-(

    Thank you!

    Hi @sirih,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    Ideally its not a good process to post on a thread a month old. The plugin has changed since then and also as per theĀ Forum Welcome,you should post your own topic :)

    To help keep support tickets separate, could you please open a new thread for your new question on the custom sidebars support forum http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/custom-sidebars This helps to prevent any confusion as I'm sure you understand.

    This might also help other members looking for a similar answer. :)

    Have a great day!

    Cheers,
