NC for Hire

Floating Home Button: This is a simple little tip. =) In the past I had a home button installed in a bottom menu bar (JenBar) that was always visible, even when the Menu Navigation wasn't. The bar wasn't good for the new JenSocial Design, so I lost the button. When I'm working on my own site, it bugs me when I have to scroll up page to access the Home Page. I decided to add a floating "home" button with link to the home page.

 

Installation Instructions:

  • If you would like to do the same, copy and paste the following code into your Custom Code Box via: My Network/Tools/Custom Code.
  • The script will remove the button from the actual home page.
  • Oops! You will need to copy code from the following text file. I forgot the platform strips position:fixed, and changes to xg-p:fixed.
  • homebutton.txt

 Code Below for Overview - - use homebutton.txt for your copy/paste.

<div class="jenhome"><a href="/" title="Home"><img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/DqaYw0w2aP9SouNhoMAmJS5mkdOzEmlXBd2qhwFelpy4UWcLfh9OFuyXb4irmXApbq0CjiF-W2BUtSYaEJh-66uBchl*mogz/1059731982.png" alt="Home" style="z-index:999;xg-p:fixed;top:208px;right:0px;"></a></div>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
x$(document).ready(function() {
if (x$("div.xg_widget_main_index_index").length > 0) {
x$('div.jenhome').css('display','none');
}
});
</script>

    • NC for Hire

      Good deal!

      • Nice script! Its showing up at the bottom of the page although the code says its "fixed, top" any ideas?

        • NC for Hire

          Armani,

          Did you make sure you used text file for the code? Make sure the xg-p:fixed; uses "position:fixed;", without the quotes.

          Best,

          Jen

          • A bit confused now LOL I added position but it still shows up at the bottom of the page, I copied the code from the light green area above and simply added the actual word "position" but no luck!

            • NC for Hire

              I need to see the live code. Link?

              =)

          • Got it! Very nice and I modified the script so that it fits evenly under my floating share buttons! It looks really cool..so cool in fact I took a screenshot for you to see LOL thanks again! I actually went to jensocial and used the code provided there as it had the link with the correct code to add to the custom code box ;)

            • NC for Hire

              @Armani, Looks very nice.

              =)

  • Good work jen
