The floating bar might appear on the middle of the screen but you can tweak the left position by changing this value from this line of the code at the top

#pageshare {position:fixed; bottom:15%; margin-left:-71px; float:left; border-

Tweak the -71 value to change the left position

How to make it appear only in posts:

  • Click on Template
  • Click Edit HTML
