Add Floating Facebook Share & +1 Button Next To Posts in Blogger

floating sharing widgetEver wondered to create a Mashable type floating sharing widget for your blogger blogs? There you have it today! We released a sliding, scrolling widget last month which contained major social media sharing buttons but some of you complained that the widget do not work properly with the new blogger templates so to keep things more flexible, we are releasing yet another version of a floating widget which contains the best social buttons like Facebook Share/like, Twitter and Google +1 button. All in one. I have not used any scripts this time and this widget works purely on CSS and HTML and is fully compatible with all major browsers. You can see this sticky widget to left of my blog post. I have made sure to keep the installation process as easy as possible so be confident to try this one out to better increase your social engagement and thereby your page views.

Adding The Sticky Floating Widget Next To Blogger Posts

  1. Go To Blogger > Design

  2. Choose a HTML/JavaScript widget

  3. Paste the following code inside it,

/*-------MBT Floating Sharing Widget------------*/

#floatdiv {


#mbtsidebar {
        border-top:1px solid #ddd;
        border-left:1px solid #ddd;
        border-bottom:1px solid #ddd;
        margin:0 0 0 5px;

.fb_share_count_top {width:52px !important;}

.fb_share_count_top, .fb_share_count_inner {-moz-border-radius:3px;-webkit-border-radius:3px;}

.FBConnectButton_Small, .FBConnectButton_RTL_Small {width:52px !important; -moz-border-radius:3px;/*bs-fsmsb*/-webkit-border-radius:3px;}

.FBConnectButton_Small .FBConnectButton_Text {padding:2px 2px 3px !important;-moz-border-radius:3px;-webkit-border-radius:3px;font-size:8px;}

<div id="floatdiv">
<div id="mbtsidebar">
    <table cellpadding="1px" cellspacing="0">

    <td style="padding:5px 0px 0px 0;">
<a href="" class="twitter-share-button" data-count="vertical" data-via="mybloggertricks">Tweet</a><script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

    <td style="padding:5px 0 2px 0;">
    <a name="fb_share" type="box_count" href="">Share</a><script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <td style=" padding:5px 0px 0px 0px;">

<script src='' type='text/javascript'> {lang: &#39;en-US&#39;} </script>

<g:plusone size="Tall" expr:href="data:post.url">
<p style=" line-height:0px; font-size:10px; font-weight:bold; text-align:center;"><a style="color:#D3D3D3;" href="">Widgets</a></p>

     4.   Save your widget and drag it just below the post body as shown below,


      5.   Now finally Click the save button at the top right corner and you are all done!


View your blog to see it hanging just to the left of your blog post body.


To align the widget more towards the left or right then edit this value margin-left:-70px;  Decreasing this numeric value will shift the widget to the right and increasing the value will shift it to left.

To Change the background colour of the floating widget then change this background:#fff;
Use our color generator or colour chart to select a colour.

If you wish to show the widget only on post pages and not the homepage then follow these steps.

Give this floating widget a temporary title then do this

  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML

  2. Backup your template

  3. Check the Expand Widgets Templates Box

  4. Search for the title of the widget

  5. The code for the widget will look something similar to this one,

<b:widget id='HTML8' locked='false' title='WIDGET-TITLE-HERE'  type='HTML'>

<b:includable id='main'>

bla bla bla bla

</b:includable> </b:widget>

Once you find the title then add the following two green bolded codes just below and after the bolded black text. For example if you wish to show a widget at Homepage only then do this,

<b:widget id='HTML8' locked='false' title='WIDGET-TITLE-HERE' type='HTML'>

<b:includable id='main'>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>

bla bla bla bla


</b:includable> </b:widget>

Save your template and you have successfully stopped the widget display on homepage and allowed it on all post pages. For learning more about how to control the widget display then read:
