In a recent post, we hinted at the development of an exclusive jQuery powered WordPress Plugin. Today is the day! We have released the brand new, completely unique WordPress Constant Footer Plugin.
It uses a jQuery plugin combined with the simplicity of a WordPress plugin to create a super-simple sticky footer. The footer sticks to the bottom of the browser window regardless of how/where the user scrolls.
Complete with an easy-to-use dashboard settings page, the WP admin can change the opacity, color and height of the footer. Utilizing a slick fade-in effect, the plugin allows any HTML to be entered by the admin and displayed to the public.
Use the plugin to:
- Showcase new content
- Display site news
- Encourage Twitter, RSS or other social media following
- Offer premium, unique advertising space
- Flag user attention for breaking news
- And anything else you come up with!
- (Tell us how you’re using the plugin in the comments belows)
The plugin is completely free, although donations are much appreciated. Here are some helpful links:
Inclusion in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory is pending. Until then, you can download the plugin from the homepage or by clicking here.
This plugin was developed by Pingable.org and released to our community of readers first. We like you that much! As with any new plugin, be patient as we work out any bugs.
