Customization:
  • Vertical alignment - Change the 15% value of bottom. The code positions the social bar relative to the bottom of your browser window. To fix the distance even when window is resized, specify the value in px (pixels) instead of %.
  • Horizontal alignment - Change the -721px value from margin-left. Negative value pushes the button to the left of the main blog column, positive value pushes it to the right. Increase or decrease the value based on your needs.
  • Twitter setting - Replace Pkcod with your Twitter username
  • Replacing and removing buttons - You can replace existing buttons with your own. Each button is represented by this code:
<div class='sbutton'> BUTTON CODE HERE </div>
    Enjoy!!! :)
