From The Editor's Desk:

Hope that Floating Navigation Bar would amuse your visitors. After adding this gadget, this floating Bar might overlap your Header section Area. To resolve this just add margin-top:50px; in the CSS of your Header-wrapper and it would stop overlapping your header. What are your thoughts about this gadget? Suggestions would act as a piece of Gold. Take care till then, Peace, Blessings and Happy Floating.
