Example on this page
If you scroll this page down, the notification bar at the top of the page will scroll with the page. This is called a "sticky" div or header and uses css fixed position code. This bar can be used as a notification for promos, or a phone number and includes social icon links on the right side of the bar. This free script is responsive and uses CSS Media Queries code to optionally hide some icons on smartphones to fit the bar across the header area.

Mega Menu Templates Add globally to jQuery includes
If your template has an includes folder you have jQuery includes. In this case, to add the HTML bar code, you'll want to add it to your "header.htm" in the "includes" folder using the following steps.
  1. Skip the HTML code step on the addon help page.
  2. Copy the HTML code from the "headerbar-promo.js" or "headerbar-WEATHER.js".
  3. Paste the code to the top of your "header.htm" in the "includes" folder. Remove the document.write(' start tag and end tag '); from each line of code.

See the help page included with the script download. Editable options include:
  • Edit with your own text and links.
  • Background colors and border.
  • Replace flower background image. A transparent .png is used. Code is in the download css file that you can edit with a different image.
  • Use your own icon images.
  • Set widget to your local weather.

Included icons
The following 30 x 30 pixel icons, Facebook, Instagram, Google Plus, Twitter and Home, are included with this addon in the download. Get more icons.

Home Icon Facebook Icon Google Plus Icon Instagram Icon Twitter Icon

You can optionally use your own icons. The default icon size is 30 x 30 pixels. Icon images are .png images with a transparent background. You can optionally use any image type by editing the menu file included with the download.

Adjusting the height
Edit the bar height and min-height in the css file in the download. You may need to edit the height in 3 places. To stay mobile compliant, the notification bar is set to 32 pixels in height. In responsive design webpages, it is recommended that you not increase the height by too many pixels for better smartphone display.

The media queries & smartphones
Media queries css code is used to hide 2 of the social icons when the browser width becomes less than 482 pixels. This code was included so the bar can fit on smartphone screens. If you add more icons, you may need to include the class "hbar-hide". Details are outlined on the downloaded help page.

TROUBLESHOOTING: Bar not working:
  • See troubleshooting section on the help page included with the download.
  • Can not see bar: The bar may be under another item on your page. Try editing the z-index in the css file to a higher number.
