Scrolling Sticky Bar for Blogger

sticky header bar
In others word a On-Scroll Sticky Bar. A simple widget which appears in the upper part of your page as you scroll down and disappears again on reaching the top something similar to the Facebook header bar. It contains social sharing options as well as links to Home Page of your blog. Also present are the Slide to Top and Email subscribe options. This can be easily customized to include options according to your needs. Lets get started and see how to add it in your blog !

You can see the live demo on this very page itself !

Before we get started

We will be using the Old Interface for this tutorial as the New Interface throws up unexpected errors when editing the template. In case you are one of the people who joined Blogger recently then there might be a chance that you have no access to the Old Interface. To overcome this problem , type the following URL into the address bar

blogger URL

Replace the highlighted number with your Blog's ID . To find the Blog ID , observe the Address Bar while surfing through the Stats , Layout , Template pages of your Blog . You will see a similar large number . That would be your Blog ID

Video Tutorial


1. Go to Blogger Dashboard and open up the Design Tab of the blog in which you want to add the Scrolling Sticky Bar. Now select the Edit HTML option

Blogger Dashboard Old

2. Now search for <body tag  ( See Video tutorial for more details ) and add the following code just below it

<div id='SYB-Bar-Container'>
<div id='SYB-Bar-Content'>
<ul id='SYB-Bar-Left'>
<li class='Home'> <a href=''>Home</a> </li>
<li class='Share'> <div id='share-top'>
<li> <a class='twitter-share-button' data-count='horizontal' href=''>Tweet</a> </li>
<li> <g:plusone size='medium'></g:plusone> </li>
<li> <div class='fb-like' data-font='verdana' data-layout='button_count' data-send='false' data-show-faces='false'>
<div style='clear:both;'></div></div></li>
<ul id='SYB-Bar-Right'>
<li class='Subscribe'> <div class='SYB-email'>
<form action='' method='post' onsubmit=';;, &#39;popupwindow&#39;, &#39;scrollbars=yes,width=550,height=520&#39;);return true' style='padding:3px;text-align:center;' target='popupwindow'>
<input class='textarea' gtbfieldid='3' name='email' onblur='if (this.value == "") {this.value = "";}' onfocus='if (this.value == "") {this.value = "";}' placeholder=' Enter Your Email Address :)' type='text' value=''/> <input name='uri' type='hidden' value='stylifyyourblog'/><input name='loc' type='hidden' value='en_US'/> <input class='SYB-emailsubmit' type='submit' value='Subscribe'/> </form>
<a href="" title="Stylify Your Blog" ><img src="" /></a> </div></li>
<li class='btt'> <a href='#top' title='Back to top'>Slide to Top &#8593;</a> </li>

Note: In Line 4 Replace the URL with your blog Address and In Line 15 and 16 replace instance of stylifyyourblog with your RSS Feed Name
3. Now search for </body> tag and add the following code just before it

<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script> 
var b = $("#SYB-Bar-Container");var c = b.css("top");$(window).scroll(function (){if ($(this).scrollTop() > 50){b.stop().animate({top: "0px"}, 0)}else{b.stop().animate({top: "-100px"}, 0)}});
$(document).ready(function(){// fade in .btt
$(function () {$(window).scroll(function (){});// scroll body to 0px on click 
$('.btt a').click(function () {$('body,html').animate({scrollTop: 0}, 350);return false;});});});
<script>(function(d, s, id) {var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if (d.getElementById(id)) return;js = d.createElement(s); = id;js.src = "//";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs)}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>
<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>
<script src='' type='text/javascript'></script> 

Note: In case you have already included the jQuery library in your blog then remove Line 1 . The same applies for Line 12 ,13 and 14 as well if you have included Facebook , Google+ and Twitter scripts respectively.

4. Lastly add the following CSS just before ]]></b:skin> tag

#SYB-Bar-Container {
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 40%, 0% 70%, from(#f9f9f9), to(#f1f1f1));
background: -moz-linear-gradient(linear, 0% 40%, 0% 70%, from(#f9f9f9), to(#f1f1f1));

 #SYB-Bar-Container , #SYB-Bar-Left .Home a, #SYB-Bar-Right .btt a,.SYB-emailsubmit {
 box-shadow: 0 5px 5px -5px #999;
 -webkit-box-shadow: 0 5px 5px -5px #999;
 -moz-box-shadow: 0 5px 5px -5px #999;

margin: 0px 116px;
-moz-border-radius:0px 0px 10px 10px;
-webkit-border-radius:0px 0px 10px 10px;
border-radius: 0px 0px 10px 10px;
 border-bottom: 1px solid #aaa;
  vertical-align: baseline;

#SYB-Bar-Container *{

#SYB-Bar-Container a {

margin:0 auto;

#SYB-Bar-Content li{



#SYB-Bar-Left li{

#SYB-Bar-Right li{

#SYB-Bar-Left .Home a, #SYB-Bar-Right .btt a,.SYB-emailsubmit{
text-shadow:0 -1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.25);
letter-spacing: 1px;

#SYB-Bar-Left .Home a:active, #SYB-Bar-Right .btt a:active,.SYB-emailsubmit:active{
position: relative;
top: 1px;

#SYB-Bar-Left .Home a{

#SYB-Bar-Left .Home a:hover{

#SYB-Bar-Right .Subscribe{

#SYB-Bar-Right .btt a{

#SYB-Bar-Right .btt a:hover{

background: #f02a37;
border:1px solid #aaaaaa;

background: #f9f9f9;
border:1px solid #dddddd;
line-height: 1;
margin: -4px 0 0 60px;
padding: 10px 0 2px 5px;

#share-top li {
display: block;
margin-right: 0;

#facebook-widget,#google-widget,#twitter-widget {display:none; }
@media only screen and (min-width : 768px) and (max-width : 1050px),only screen and (min-device-width : 768px) and (max-device-width : 1024px){

5. Hit the Save Template button and view your blog to see how the bar appears.

Thanks Sunil for appreciating the effort , Glad you liked it

Hi Ranjit

Can you share the URL where you implemented it so that I can help you out with it. Couldn't find it on your blog

I suggest you stick to the default sharing widgets the only reason being that AddThis and its other counterparts like ShareThis include lots of other stylesheets and scripts ,which end up slowing the page a lot.

In case you still want , I can help out with it

Yes and in that time so much have changed great re-designing :)

Farhan said...

Great tutorial indeed!! Keep the good work up bro!!

I have two queries:
1. Home & Slide to Top buttons aren't aligned just as they are shown on your blog
2. I would also like to have View Random Post button as its present over here.

Your help will be highly appreciated :)

God bless you.

Sorry for disturb you

Unknown said...

How to change the background bro, ? for

This is CSS to change (Line 1-5 of Step 4 in the above tutorial )

#SYB-Bar-Container {
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 40%, 0% 70%, from(#f9f9f9), to(#f1f1f1));
background: -moz-linear-gradient(linear, 0% 40%, 0% 70%, from(#f9f9f9), to(#f1f1f1));

This tool will help in changing the gradient values
Also the background-color is for older browsers like IE8 which do not support gradients

Also there is some problem with the placement of the content , to fix it add the following CSS

#SYB-Bar-Content {
margin: 10px auto !important;

Hi Prayang I know how to make the widget full width just follow my easy step

find this code :

margin: 0px 116px;

and replace it with

margin:0px auto;

find this code :

and put this code below/after it


and the widget full width

Thanks a lot Prayang :D
You're my best Blogger Teacher ^_^
