We have added the ability to make the “footer bar” visible only for mobile devices. This functionality was added with a native WordPress PHP function: wp_is_mobile (), which only activates if the user accesses your website from a mobile browser.

Fixed a small CSS bug related to the height of the bar

In this version the possibility to choose the graphic style has been added. You can add the “App Style” style which is very useful to improve the user experience of your website o a “Standard style”.

In this version “Fontawesome” has been integrated and the ability to add a custom icon for each button has been added.You can add the icons you want, simply via the admin panel.

This plugin works great for my website's needs! just needed a simple footer banner on my site for a CTA and I was pleasantly surprised for how simple it was to instal and setup. I had a small CSS tweak I needed fixed and the developer was super responsive to my requests and got me everything I asked for. For a free plugin, it's exactly what I needed.
