Step 1: Embedding the code
  • Log in to your Blogger dashboard, select your Blog, 
  • Go to 'Template' option select 'Edit Html', 
  • Now find (using CTRL+F or CMD+F) into code snippet </head> tag. 
  • Copy following codes and paste them above </head>

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
    var ks_widget_top = $('#widget Id').offset().top;
    var ks_sticky_widgets = function(){
        var ks_current_top = $(window).scrollTop();
        if (ks_current_top > ks_widget_top) {
          $('#widget Id').css({ 'position': 'fixed', 'top':0, 'z-index':999999 });
        } else {
            $('#widget Id').css({ 'position': 'relative' });
      $(window).scroll(function() {


Step 2: Configure your Sticky widget

After codes embed part is done, now it's time to configure the widget which one you intended to make sticky/float. To doing that you need to find Widget Id. Every gadget/widget have one unique Widget Id.

For getting your widget Id -
  • From 'Template' option select 'Edit Html' 
  • Select 'Jump to widget' and you will see your current using gadget's Id (example-HTML1, HTML2, Blog1 etc)If you unable to detected your widget Id in this way then follow the alter way,
The Alter way to find Widget Id is - 
  • First preview your Blog while you logged in
  • The widget you want to make sticky in lower right corner of that widget you'll see a small wrench, Hover mouse pointer on wrench icon and bottom of web browser a link you will see, the link's last word contains your widget Id (see below picture)
  • Then, in code chunk place your Widget Id thrice (red marked)

If your template already has the jQuery code

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

installed, sticky widget will not work, so if your Template already got this code don't paste twice, without this line paste the rest!
