Floating Vertical Buttons

By popular demand, we’ve designed floating vertical buttons to scroll with your visitors as they read your content. This makes sharing convenient and simple.

The vertical bar comes in a variety of sizes. By default, it floats on the top left side of the page, to make your sharing tools always visible. It’s easy to implement and won’t interfere with your site.

If you’ve installed this tool on your site, drop us a line so we can feature it. Here are some folks using it:

    Is it possible to center align the tool on every screen size ? Maybe with some CSS.. I just see the option “Vertical Offset” in pixels. Thank you.

  • Jack

    is there a way to remove these from sight? I hate websites that irritate by impeding the view.

  • Hi Jack, if you’re using these buttons on a website of yours, just log back into the AddThis dashboard, go to “Tools” and toggle off the buttons you’d like deactivate. If you’re talking about seeing these buttons on a site that’s not yours and you’d like to hide them, hover over the vertical sharing sidebar, and you’ll see a small arrow appear immediately below that you can click to hide them.

    I hate these floating bars, too, and your tip doesn’t work to get rid of them, at least on android. . So I just have to leave the site without reading, because the dang floating bar covers the text.

  • Hi Allen, while we love all our share buttons equally, our most popular share button type is our “Floating Share Bar” (formerly “Sidebar Share Buttons”). These stick to the side of your page as you scroll, which is a great way to increase user engagement. You can learn more here: https://www.addthis.com/get/floating-share-bar.
