Frequently Asked Questions

Can I reposition the Floating Bar campaign?

Troubleshooting

My Floating Bar campaign is sitting on top of the header / navigation of my site instead of pushing it down.

The default behavior for the Floating Bar campaign is to push the page content down when the campaign is positioned at the top of the browser.

If you’re seeing the Floating Bar overlay your page content instead of at the top, it’s likely that your site’s theme or styling is interfering with the natural behavior of the campaign. For example, if your site has a sticky header or navigation bar this can result in the campaign overlaying that sticky header or navigation bar.

This can be addressed by adding the following Javascript code directly to your site. Be sure to update the code as mentioned in the comments:

document.addEventListener('om.Campaign.afterShow', function(event) {
    if (event.detail.Campaign.id == 'zjd3hxxogbfvmy2iz0rp') // your slug
    {
        var campaignID = 'om-'+ event.detail.Campaign.id;
        var campaignHeight = document.getElementById(campaignID).offsetHeight;
        var fixedElement = document.getElementById('top'); //give ID for your fixed element OR document.querySelector('.yourClassName.yourSecondClassName');
        fixedElement.style.top = campaignHeight + 'px';
    }
});
document.addEventListener('om.Campaign.close', function(event) {
    var fixedElement = document.getElementById('top'); //give ID for your fixed element or document.querySelector('.yourClassName.yourSecondClassName');
    fixedElement.style.top = 0;
});
