Plugin glues your website’s sidebar, making it permanently visible while scrolling.
Sticky sidebar plugin will work out of box with some themes which use “#secondary” element id for sidebar such as: Twenty Seventeen, Twenty Sixteen, Twenty Fourteen, Twenty Twelve, Total, Flat Bootstrap, Bolid Theme and many more…
By default, plugin use “#secondary” element id under “Sticky Class” setting field and that should be modified for different themes to make it work. Don’t forget this, it’s a mandatory field.
Plugin is localized (multi language support) and responsive (as far as your theme is). Advancement of this simple plugin is that increases usability of WordPress site since sidebar is visible most of the time.
Sticky Class: CSS class or id of the sidebar element desired to be sticky. Defaults to “#secondary”. This is mandatory field and it must be filled!
Container Class: Container element class or id. If left blank script will try to guess. It must be element that contains both sidebar and content. Usually it’s #main or #main-content or #primary. Mostly this parameter is not needed for majority of themes.
Additional Top Margin: An additional top margin in pixels. Defaults to 90.
Additional Bottom Margin: An additional bottom margin in pixels. Defaults to 0.
