This plugin makes your anchor text to smooth scroll adds a smooth scroll to top feature/link in the lower-right corner of long pages. Appears after a set scrolling point and hides after scrolling near the top. This plugin is based on cudazi’s plugin “Scroll to Top”, and you may use this plugin if you need “Scroll to top” feature.

Features include:

  • Smooth Scrolling for all anchor texts.
  • A back to top button on right hand side.
  • No unnecessary menu item in WordPress Dashboard.
  • Easy customization with some css/js code edit.
  • All CSS and JS files are compressed to score high in Google Page Speed score.
  • Now change easing effect with the help of jQueruyUI

Important Links:

BTW, The plugin might not be now compatible with some plugins. If there are some specific tabs or anchor links we may exclude them mannually. Ask in support forums for help. Please report compatibility issue on the GitHub repository. You are welcomed to contribute towards the development of the plugin.


Installation Instructions

  1. Upload the plugin in Plugins > Add New or FTP into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
  3. Visit a long page and start scrolling down to see the link appear.

Why I am not able to find any menu link in my WordPress Dashboard?

Because there is none. All you have to install and activate the plugin. However, There might be some compatibility issues especially with a slider or tab. Please consult us for help.

I am looking for PSD file.

You may download the PSD file from here.

Can I use a custom icon?

Yes, just overwrite the arrow.png image or use the included PSD to tweak.

Can I adjust the point when the icon/link appears?

Yes, just edit the upperLimit value in js/jss-script.min.js.

Why everything looks weird in js and css files?

Because these files are compressed. I have included reader friendly files i.e. js/jss-script.min.js and css/jss-style.js

I don’t want to add a plugin. How do I add these functionality without a plugin?

Of course you can do this. I will add a blog post about how to do this without any plugin. But remember, you can’t get automatic upgrade in this condition. BTW, Follow BlogSynthesis for any update.

Note: This plugin is based on “Cudazi scroll to top”.
