    To make a long story short, do not use a plugin that requires a few lines of code to do yourself. When I checked my website, everything looked normal, but when i had a friend look at it.....well... this happened:

    So not only was this bullshit at the bottom of the screen, it also broke my CSS.

    I did not catch it in time and Google brought down its wrath.

    Fair warning everyone.

    For anyone looking for floating widgets and bars, I'd recommend StickyJS.
    Unfortunately it's not a WP plugins, but ain't that hard to get going if you know some HTML.

    Have your ranking changed since you fixed the problem?

    In the screenshot that I posted you can see that blue bar at the top, which is an affiliate link. Basically just a small bar where you can customize text, color, and size that directs a use to an affiliate URL. Complete waste of a plugin and I ended up fucking up a GIANT site of mine.

    I did something similar to this one time. Now I set up a small website just to test plugins and themes on
    before I use them on money sites. It would probably be worth your time to set up a small site with a little
    content to give plugins like this a run before really using them. :)

    OP I got also a issue with one of my themes. On firefox the structure looks like broken. But when I view it on chrome it looks fine. I found on google a online tool which captures screenshots of your websites on every webbrowser(including versions).

    When I looked on the firefox screencaptures my site looks normal, really weird. I am going to do a deepscan today to see if my AV find somethine. Since I am doing IM i got a shitload of stuff.
