    Think there is a mistake here, this article talks about the Sticky scrolling feature, not the PTB plugin, thoug it’s a very good feature, I was hoping for a tutorial about PTB

    Think there is a mix-up here, this article discusses the Sticky looking over include, not the PTB module, thoug it’s an awesome component, I was expecting an instructional exercise about PTB
