How StickUp Works

A simple plugin that "sticks" elements to the top of the browser window while scrolling past it. For better experience it optionally offers autohide with reappearence after scrolling up.

Please Visit the GitHub Page for installation instructions.

Updated version

This version contains a major code cleanup with several improvements

Configuration options


When ticked stickUp will keep the element hidden when scrolling past it but show it immediatly when scrolling up again (like adressbar in Chrome for Android). This feature allows better screen space usage while offering the sleek UI shortcut of standard sticking behavoiur.
Only works with elements smaller than viewport.

Similar to scrollHide but not hiding element. It rather adds the set value while scrolling up. Good for streamlining appearance and avoid overlapping when introducing multiple sticky elements with one autoHiding at top.
