myStickyElements – simple sticky side elements

myStickyElements is simple yet very effective plugin for any WordPress theme. It is perfect to fill out usually unused side space on webpages with some additional messages, videos, social widgets … Using the myStickyElements administration backend you can add up to 10 elements, position them left or right, change vertical position, change icon img, background color, content, select click or hover effect and more …

UPDATE 1.2
*Adds plugin text-domain and enables language translations
* Fixed: close element on mobile devices (hover event). If hover event is selected,  click event will still be available for touchscreen devices…

UPDATE 1.1
*Adds short code support to plugin functionality, so now you can add contact form or anything you wish with simple shortcode pasted inside of  element content field…
* Fixed: close element on mobile devices (click event only). Click event is strongly recommended as default since it will work for mobile devices as they don’t have hover behavior…

Download myStickyElements plugin from WordPress repository

Please note that vertical positioning of elements on the same side (left or right) must be in order, if Element 1 Vertical Position is 300, E2 should be 350 or more, E3 should be 400 or more , other words E1 must be on top of E2, E2 must be on top of E3 and so on,  otherwise elements will overlap…

      “You have to go into your hosting account. Select the folder “wp-content”, then “plugins”, then “mystickyelements”, then” img” and then “white” & upload any .png file into that folder.
      Then back in wordpress under the myStickyElements Settings the icon bg image would be something like /img/white/example.png”

  2. I would like to put a small contact form in the pull out tab. I downloaded Contact Form 7 & inserted the shortcode into the text part of the content, but it doesn’t work!! Is there an alternative way to accomplish this?!?

      1. Hello!

        Is there a way of displaying the sticky elements only after a certain amount of scroll? Basically, I don’t want it to appear on my landing page which is before my main page.

        Thanks a lot in advance for your answer 🙂

    1. Hello Sara,

      I had the same problem and found a solution that I share with those in need :

      1. Open /plugins/mystickyelements/mystickyelements.php
      2. Change the line 3028 with :

      ' .do_shortcode ($mysticky_option ['myfixed_element_content']) . '

  3. I would like to use your plugin for something other than social media. I increased the height, but I can’t get an icon image to appear??? Can you help?

        1. Hi Frank,

          Sorry for the late reply. You have to go into your hosting account. Select the folder “wp-content”, then “plugins”, then “mystickyelements”, then” img” and then “white” & upload any .png file into that folder.
          Then back in wordpress under the myStickyElements Settings the icon bg image would be something like /img/white/example.png

          Hope that helps!

  4. Hi damiroquai,

    thanks for this really nice, small Plugin. After “myStickymenu” this is your 2nd Plugin, about which I’ve written a short review in my little (german) blog. Hope you’re fine with this.

    Looking forward to your next Plugin;)

    Greetz,
    Schelli
