Closed, DeclinedPublic

Standard Skin seems to be the only one compatible with
Floating Quickbar.

Using XP Pro, IE 6 SP1, Quickbar: Floating left, Skin: ALL
(incl. MonoBook) EXCEPT Standard

Works in CologneBlue now as well, but will be hard to do in
MonoBook. A different skin based on the same xhtml as
monobook, but without the extensive tab formatting can do
this, in monobook it seems to be more or less impossible to
do fixed without breaking the tabs (the tabs and personal

tools are part of the quickbar in the source).

Another MonoBook issue will be the long list of interwiki links

at the bottom of the QuickBar - may need scrolling.

As noted on the Meta User Styles page
(, I found
a kludgy way to implement this. It needs work, but adding this code to your
user.css will make it float:

#p-logo { position:fixed; }
#p-personal { position:fixed; top:0em;}
#p-nav { position:fixed; top:9em; }
#p-search { position:fixed; top:19em; }
#p-tb { position:fixed; top:24em; z-index:3; }
#p-tbx { position:fixed; top:20em; z-index:3; }
#p-lang { position:fixed; top:31em; z-index:3; }
#footer { display:none; }

Notice that I had to turn off the footer because I couldn't figure out how to
get it back at the bottom. Someone who actually knows css and the monobook skin
should be able to finish this in a jiffy.

For an implementation of this in javascript and CSS. Shouldn't be too hard to support this natively with some modifications.

I'm going to go ahead and close this as WONTFIX.

Obviously there's not much desire for this or it would've been fixed sometime in the last 6 years. Users can do this with custom JS/CSS if they really want it, and that solution seems to work just fine for those who do want it.
