Stick any Web Page Element/Widget on Scroll

If you are a Google+ user, you must have notice that when you scroll past your cover picture, the navigation bar automatically maintains a fixed position (the position is only changed when you scroll above it). I guess that’s what you are looking for?

I Need Explanation…..
This is a simple jquery code combined with a few css code that fixes any element it is applied on when it reaches the top of the page.
Sounds like a nice bargain, what platforms are supported?
This code works perfectly well on any platform or cms including Blogger, Oxwall, WordPress, HTML Websites, etc, though the implementation varies from one platform to the other.
I Want to be Sure..
No one will blame you for asking for a demonstration, after all seeing is believing. Below is screen shot on how the sticky element works.
This is only a demonstration, the sticky element works on every item, including the navigation bar  and footer.

Implementing Sticky Element

Like I mentioned earlier, implementing the sticky element varies from one platform or cms to the other but I will try and make it easier for everyone irrespective of your website platform.

Header Section

You must put the code in this section in between <head> </head> tag, if you are not sure on how to find this tag, simply open your html file with a code editor, using ctrl+f find this tag </head> and place the code in this section immediately above it.
For oxwall users, you can simply logon to admin dashboard==> Settings==> Page Settings and paste the code where you see custom header.

function moveScroller() {
var move = function() {
var st = $(window).scrollTop();
var ot = $("#scroller-anchor").offset().top;
var s = $("#scroller");
if(st > ot) {
position: "fixed",
top: "0px"
} else {
if(st <= ot) {
position: "relative",
top: ""

Custom Section

In another day I could have called this body section, if you are using a cms, you can simply add a new html/javascript widget and paste the code in this section right inside your widget and click save!

<div id="sidebar" style="width:250px;">
<div id="scroller-anchor">
<div id="scroller" style="margin-top:10px; width:250px">
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {


Blogger user can simply make due with this code, is quite simpler, provided you know how to obtain your widget Id.

  • Login to your blogger dashboard
  • Click on template
  • Click on edit
  • Find </body> and paste the following code above it

// Sticky Widget By
rb_makeSticky("YOUR WIDGET ID GOES HERE"); // enter your widget ID here
function rb_makeSticky(elem) {
var rb_sticky = document.getElementById(elem);
var scrollee = document.createElement("div");
rb_sticky.parentNode.insertBefore(scrollee, rb_sticky);
var width = rb_sticky.offsetWidth;
var iniClass = rb_sticky.className + ' rb_sticky';
window.addEventListener('scroll', rb_sticking, false);
function rb_sticking() {
var rect = scrollee.getBoundingClientRect();
if ( < 0) {
rb_sticky.className = iniClass + ' rb_sticking'; = width + "px";
} else {
rb_sticky.className = iniClass;
.rb_sticking {position:fixed; top:0px;}

  •  Replace YOUR WIDGET ID GOES HERE with your widget ID.
