Blogger jQuery Scrolling Social Bookmarking Bar On Posts

blogger sticky share bar gadget

The most requested tutorial over the last few months has been for the scrolling share buttons that sit alongside posts and scroll down the page with the reader. This gadget is popular on all the top blogs and really does help increase the number of times your posts get shared on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks. Using jQuery we attach a bar to the side of your blog posts with bookmarking buttons, as the page scrolls the bar neatly follows giving readers the option to share at any time. The gadget I have been using for the past few months and I share with you today has the following options : Twitter Share, Facebook Like, Stumble Upon, Google+, Pinterest Pin It and a RSS Feed Icon. WordPress users can try out the WordPress Share Bar listed in this post.

Video Tutorial – For extra help at the end of the post I have a video tutorial displaying the steps.

At the moment this gadget is in use here so you should be able to see it, you can also see another demo below.

As this is an advanced gadget there are 9 steps to add it to your blog so more than ever its important to back up your template first in case of mistakes, then take your time and you should have no problems.
