Floaty Social Module

Sharing your social network profiles needs to be interesting, and work well on mobile devices.  Social icons are often just a static icon linking to a page, which isn't exactly exciting or inviting to visitors on your sites.

Floaty Social creates a pure-CSS set of tabs which float in and out when hovered, displaying links to your social media profiles.  Tabs are automatically hidden if you don't enter the URL.

Demo Support & Documentation


This subscriptions provides 12 months' access to Floaty Social for Joomla 3, including access to all resources and 30 support credits per month.

Do you support Joomla! 1.5?

No, we don't support Joomla! 1.5 any more.

How does it work?

floatysocial activeSocial profiles are added in the module configuration, which are then shown when the module is published (to any live position on your template) as tabs, attached to the right hand side of the screen, which expand by 'floating' out when the mouse cursor hovers over them.

What happens on a mobile?

On a mobile device, the tabs automatically dock to the bottom of the viewport, and they don't fly out - instead you click on the icon for the social network and it directs you to that page. 

What networks do you support?

You can see from the image to the right the networks we currently support, we're adding new profiles all the time though, if you've got one you need to add just let us know.

How much does it cost?

Floaty Social costs £5+ which gives you access to download all updates and receive support for a period of one year - you can install Floaty Social on as many domains as you like, and we will support you on as many domains as you need.  

We operate a sustainable support policy which allows each customer 30 support credits per month during the active term of their subscription - read more about our support policy here.

Following this period you can continue to use Floaty Social (on as many sites as you like, we don't ever limit that) but if you need updates or support you will need to purchase another subscription.
