Adding a Sticky Notification Bar with Show/Hide Button to Your Blogger Blog

Sticky navigation on blogger

A notification bar is an effective way to draw your blog visitors' attention to important announcements, links, or offers.

Step 4: Add the HTML Notification Bar

- Find the opening `<body>` tag.

- Below it, paste the HTML code for the notification bar. You can customize the content and links to your requirements.

<div id='sdp_NotificationBar_wrap'>
  <div class='sdp_NotificationBar'>
    <input class='sdp_ShowHideButtonBar' id='sdp-nb' type='checkbox'/>
    <label for='sdp-nb'><i class='fa fa-chevron-circle-up'></i></label>
    <div class='sdp_ContentArea'>
        <li><i class='fa fa-signal'></i> Trending: <a href='#Your-Link1'>Floating Social Media Buttons Bar</a></li>
        <li><i class='fa fa-fire'></i> Hot: <a href='#Your-Link2'>SDavidPrince | Blogger Tutorials</a></li>
        <li><i class='fa fa-rss'></i> Rss: <a href='#Your-Link3'>Subscribe to RSS</a></li>

In the HTML part, make sure to replace "#Your-Link1", "#Your-Link2", and "#Your-Link3" with the actual links you want to use.

 In nut-shell

<li> <Font Awesome Icon Code/> Text String: <a href='Your-Link'>Anchor Text For Link</a></li>

Step 5: Add the JavaScript Code for Sticky Behavior

    var scrollee = document.createElement("div");
    bs_sticky.parentNode.insertBefore(scrollee, bs_sticky);
    var iniClass = bs_sticky.className + ' bs_sticky';
    window.addEventListener('scroll', bs_sticking, false);
    function bs_sticking() {
        var rect = scrollee.getBoundingClientRect();
        if (rect.top < 0) {
            bs_sticky.className = iniClass + ' bs_sticking';
            bs_sticky.style.width = "100%";
        } else {
            bs_sticky.className = iniClass;
