    Hi Alex,

    thanks for reaching out and providing helpful screenshots and a link to your site!

    I believe we found the solution. Could I ask you to check the development version and let me know if that works?

    Thanks,
    Thomas

    Thanks Thomas, that seemed to do the trick.

    However, another problem has come up now. The ‘Margin Top’ setting won’t save. When I click the Save button, it reverts to the default number of 0.

    Hey Alex, I saw the video, but couldn’t reproduce this either on an existing site or a new test site. Do you have another site where you can confirm this behavior?

    Thanks,
    Thomas

    No I don’t, only one site.

    It works now though. When I installed the plugin, a new number wouldn’t save.

    So I checked ‘Test new version’, changed the Margin Top number, hit Save. And it worked.

    I’ve unchecked ‘Test new version’ and for some reason I can now change the Margin Top number as many times as I want.

    Btw, another question – Does the plugin work with Widget Groups? The reason I ask is because having multiple widgets in a Widget Group, and then applying Fixed Widget to the Group could make this work better. I can’t make it work like this though…maybe the plugin doesn’t have the functionality.

    I just tested again with individual widgets and still get the same issue, but a variation of it.

    See here: https://d.pr/v/ucV1OR

    Now, the second widget appears on top of the first widget, and after a moment it moves to the correct spot.

    Hey Alex,

    thanks for your feedback.

    > Does the plugin work with Widget Groups?

    I just tested it. At first, it didn’t work, but then it did. I am not sure why not and will need more testing, but you could try the following:

    – use a Group (not Widget Group) block
    – make the Group sticky => that should work right away
    – convert the Group into a Widget Group and select the Fix Widget option

    Does that work?

    About the jumping issue: there is a small jump, which I don’t know if we can prevent it. It can take longer, depending on how quickly the site is built up. But it shouldn’t take as long as in your video. Please make sure that you refresh your browser cache so that the new script is loaded. This just helped another user with a similar issue.

    Thanks,
    Thomas

    Thanks Thomas. It works best with the Group. I’ll just use that.

    As for the jumping issue, that cleared completed just by using the Group. And I cleared the browser and website cache, so it’s all working great now.

    Thanks for your help! Appreciate it 🙂

    And great plugin!
