<!-- End of Floating shares -->
6. After copying, save the gadget.
7. Now drag the gadget and reposition it under Blog Posts gadget.
8. Click Save arrangement button on upper right corner.

How to customize the buttons

1.Vertical alignment
You need to change the value of bottom in code line 3. That code will position the button relative to the bottom of your browser window. In case you want to fix the distance even when window is resized, specify the value in px (pixels) instead of %.

2. Horizontal alignment
Change the value of margin-left (search for the code). Now here if we enter 'negative value' which will push the button to the left of the main blog column, in case we enter 'positive value' it pushes it to the right.
So, to position the button relative to the left or right edge of browser window, replace the margin-left with left (as in left:10px;) or right (as in right:10px;) respectively.

3. In case, replacing and removing buttons
You can replace existing buttons with your own. Each button is represented by this code:
<div class='sbutton'>
While replacing the button, simply replace the button code with the new code. To remove the button, delete the whole div.

If you face any issue displaying your Google +1 button, despite other buttons appear successfully, try this :
  • Go to Template > Edit HTML and find this line:
<body expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass'>
  • Now copy the code in step # 5 and paste it right below the line.
  • Click preview before saving.
We have done installing the widget for floating social media share buttons bar.
