Fixed Top/Bottom Content With jQuery: Meerkat
Meerkat is a jQuery plugin for creating a fixed content on the top or bottom of the page which keeps its position when the page is scrolled.
The content displayed can slide or fade in & can be configured with the options provided.
There is a
close option, which closes Meerkat until the page has been reloaded, or a
dontShow option, which closes it until the browser session has ended, or for a set amount of days, totally configurable.
It is also possible to define the background color, height & animation speed of the Meerkat easily.
The plugin is very useful for displaying sticky banners & notifications or creating a splash page (an example exists in the plugin page).
