Support » Plugin: Q2W3 Fixed Widget for WordPress » It is much better to use your own code

  • While I appreciate that there is a Fixed Widget plugin for WordPress, it is way too buggy. It is much simpler to just use a couple of lines of code in your style.css file.

    @media only screen and (min-width: 1200px) {
    	
    	.content-sidebar-wrap {
    		display: -webkit-box;
    		display: -ms-flexbox;
    		display: flex;
    		-webkit-box-pack: justify;
    		-ms-flex-pack: justify;
    		justify-content: space-between;
    	}
    	
    	.sidebar-primary, .sidebar-secondary {
    		position: -webkit-sticky;
    		position: sticky;
    		height: 100%;
    		top: 86px;
    		margin-bottom: 0px;
    	}
    	
    	.admin-bar .sidebar-primary, .admin-bar .sidebar-secondary {
    		top: 118px;
    	}
    	
    }

    Just edit your divs and margins and you have a fixed widget.

    Hi @narubi,

    thanks for leaving a comment about Fixed Widget.

    You are right that developers can fix elements using custom code. Fixed Widget comes with a few more options, like starting and stopping the position of fixed elements that are not included in your code. The plugin also enables non-developers to implement these features.

    If you found a bug then we are happy to take a look at it. Since you seem to be an experienced coder you can even make suggestions on fixes.

    All the best to you and your project!
    Thomas

    The bugs are mostly what all others are experiencing: Jumping and overlapping of widgets. Conflicting with original styling of the website.
    It may also be caused by a caching plugin/minify of css. I am not sure and I am definitely not an experienced coder 🙂
    All I needed was a sticky sidebar so this plugin is overkill for me anyway.

    Jumping overlapping is most probably due to the widget being set to position: relative; changed this to position: static; and you won’t have any issues. The dev does have a how-to in case you have issues – https://wpadvancedads.com/fixed-widget-wordpress/?utm_source=fixed-widget&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=BackendSidebar#jumping. Think 3 stars is a bit harsh for something that is lightweight and works a treat.
