[rz] Sticky Object v1.1.1

The most reliable and lightweight cross-browser, cross-platform and backward-compatible solution
to have sticky objects with advanced relocation features.

- Nine possible positions
- Additional horizontal and vertical offset values
- Objects overlap control
- Sticky objects margin for additional overlap control
- Min-top and min-left virtual properties for lateral sticky objects


HTML 4.01 Transitional
W3C compliant

* New in version 1.1.1

- Improved handling and support for pages with floating schemes.

* New in version 1.1

- Smaller and more efficient core; many portions were rewriten to comply deprecation policy changes in Chrome and FireFox.
- The core has been moved to an external file for a faster navigation between pages.
- Improved RWD handling.

How to use?

1. Drag and drop any object (text, image, shape, layer, carousel, etc) you want have to be fixed (like in native sticky layers).
2. Open its properties dialog.
3. Enter the id of the object you want to have fixed.
4. Setup the position in the browser.
5. Optionally, setup offset values, boundaries, etc.
6. Preview or publish; then, resize your browser and scroll the page contents to see how the sticky objects behave.

Question before purchase. :)

It may sound silly, because it seems like this would be the exact nature of this extension, but I want to be sure. I already have two that aren't working for what I need in IE, though they are fine in FF. So thank you for the patience. I need to post a "sticky note" over the top of the existing page elements. I don't want it in the margins. Instead I need a layered effect. Here is what it looks like now, with the Fixed Object Extension. Will yours solve my problem?

thank you for your post
first of all, i want to clear up an important point
the extension that you are referring to, was not built by me, i don't want people get confused because of this
an online demo is available so as you can see how objects can be aligned
the sticky object can be on top of your whole design or can be fixed without touching the design, this means, outside the design margins
so in your image, the yellow object should be on top...

** EDIT **
i did a test, similar to the image you posted
and yes, the sticky object can optionally be on top of the menu or outside the margins
(just guessing what you may have in the image...)

It took me a minute to figure out that the extension I was using wasn't yours, so thank you for clarifying that for other users too! And thank you for the incredibly quick response. It did look like the "classic" mode of your extension, Sticky Object (not Fixed Object from another author) was exactly what I needed, but I had to be sure. I hate tossing money at things only to find out they are not quite right. Now all I have to do is find another critical extension of yours so I can meet your minimum purchase requirement. :) Thank you SO much for your dedication to your users and for such useful extensions!

Ug. Nope. It won't go in front of the plug-in extension containing the PDF

is that plug-in a flash-based object?

I don't know, actually. It's just called "plug-in" in the extensions list. Or it was. I don't see it in the list anymore! Ug. It seems I need a new way to display PDF files on the page as well. I noticed yours was out of service. :(

please post a link so as i can try to understand what happens...
(anyhow i'm pretty sure that your issue is unrelated to the extension itself)

I found it. It's Insert Media=> Other Media => Plug-in

Here is the link:

It is not a problem in FF because the margins widen and the sticky doesn't cover anything. It only happens in IE.

i cannot test it in ie, returns with an unrecoverable fatal error and ie halts and quits itself
i do not see any issue in chrome
the html has many errors, do not name objects starting with numbers
seems that the embed approach may cause issues in some browsers, however, i cannot test it in ie; i would correctly name objects and retry again...

Interesting. I have no trouble opening it in IE at all. I have renamed the offending objects.

Two pages need the sticky image.

Try using a smaller browser window, narrower, to see what I mean. Apparently, I was wrong about it only happening in IE. With a smaller window, it happens across the board. I had to move them out of the way for publication because the site is live and this was an emergency patch, but if you narrow your browser enough, you should see what I mean.

It does exactly the same thing as the Fixed Object plug-in from before.

sorry, but using the same jpg as a screenshot won't help
here is the screenshot at my end
besides the ie error in the app, all is rendered correctly
perhaps you are seeing a cached version
delete the cache and the history and try again
