Fade Out Social Media Navigation

The icon navigation at the bottom shows on page load and fades out on scroll.
The Font Awesome icons are inserted by either referencing the stylesheet via the CDN link or by inserting a personal ID into the javascript.
By default the widget references the V4.7.0 stylesheet. This can be user updated as newer versions become available.
The javascript method requires obtaining a javascript link containing a unique ID. The advantage of this method is that no updating is required when new icons become available.

URL
Enter the absolute URL to the social media site or relevent page and check the box if the link is to open in a new window.

Email Link
There is an option to add an email link with fields for email address, subject and content. The link can be set up with the website email address and subject for visitor feedback or as a way for visitors to email a friend.
In the latter case, the email field is left blank and the subject line entered as something like "Check Out This Web Page"
The content field can have the URL of the web page. It will appear as text on the email but will be converted to a clickable hyperlink at the receiving end.
